HOW WE WORK (**Next grant deadline: March 13, 2019)
• Baby Quest Foundation is a completely volunteer 501 C (3) charity. All donations are tax deductible.
• Our goal is to control administrative costs to allow a large percentage of donations to go directly to those in need.
Baby Quest grants generally cover a portion of medications. Grants are designed to cover the “gap” —- the balance remaining between what the total charge is minus what you can contribute. We do not generally grant awards to those already receiving financial help from other charities. (This does NOT include discounts from fertility clinics and bank loans.)
Baby Quest receives hundreds of applications each cycle. We are limited by the amount of funds that are donated. We strive to be diverse in regards to ethnicity, sexual orientation, and geography. Please know that we CANNOT fund all those who apply.
ALTHOUGH MANY APPLICANTS ARE SELECTED THE 2ND OR 3RD TIME THEY APPLY, APPLICANTS MAY APPLY A TOTAL OF 3 TIMES. EACH APPLICATION MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A $50 FEE AND A NEW APPLICATION, MEDICAL FORM, ETC.
