Non-Profit Organizations

The Arthritis Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention, control and cure of arthritis (including juvenile arthritis) in the United States. You can donate to the Arthritis Foundation here, or you can find a local Jingle Bell Run or Walk to Cure Arthritis team which will gratefully receive your donation. If you would like to donate to a team without searching, consider donating to the National Youth Honoree for the Walk To Cure Arthritis, Mariah from Mariah’s Movers or to Abby from Abby’s Army.

Abby's Army was formed to improve the lives of children diagnosed with juvenile arthritis and assist their families with the financial challenges associated with managing the disease. You can learn more at or make a donation here.

The Juvenile Arthritis Association was formed to address the enormous lack of awareness, funding, and resources dedicated to children and young adults diagnosed with pediatric rheumatic diseases. It currently serves Southern California. You can donate to the Juvenile Arthritis Association here.

The Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF) funds a grant for children affected by arthritis each year called The Kelly Award for Juvenile Arthritis Research. You can donate to the ANRF here.

The Arthritis Society is the largest non-governmental funder of arthritis research in Canada. You can donate to the Arthritis Society here.
