The Arthritis Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Founded in 1948, with headquarters in Atlanta, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. The foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.

 

The Arthritis Foundation offers information and tools to help people live a better life with arthritis. Whether it’s advice from medical experts to specialized arthritis self-management or exercise classes, the Arthritis Foundation has your solution.

 

There are a number of ways to become involved with the Arthritis Foundation. Whether you become a member, make a donation or remember us in your will, your contribution goes to support cutting-edge research and scientifically proven programs designed to help people with arthritis. For every dollar donated to the Arthritis Foundation, more than 76 cents goes directly to fund research and activities for people with arthritis.

 

You can help by serving or leading an Arthritis Foundation committee, lending a hand at an event or sharing your professional skills as a volunteer.

 

However, getting involved doesn’t require a major donation or major time commitment. Attending a fundraising event – be it a fun run, breakfast or gala, or the Arthritis Walk, our signature event – is another way to help. Raise awareness about arthritis’ effects on your life and the needs of people with arthritis as an advocate.
