The Pedal-with-Pete Foundation annually awards grants to one or more
recipients whose proposals most closely adhere to the directives of its
mission statement, Pedal-with-Pete is a philanthropic organization,
dedicated to raising funds for research to improve the quality of life for
persons with cerebral palsy.
Pedal-with-Pete partners with the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Development Medicine (AACPDM) to aid in the assessment, ranking, and selection of grant requests. The AACPDM is the premier international organization promoting excellence in research and services for the benefit of people with CP and childhood-onset disabilities. Their grant board is made up of medical and research experts, and has a strict and unbiased grading system to evaluate grant proposals and to mentor researchers/investigators.
Researchers should submit grant requests directly to the AACPDM in the fall to be considered to receive Pedal-with-Pete funding for the following year. In early November, the PwP Board chooses one to three grants from a selection recommended by the AACPDM.
Historically, our grants have been awarded in a range of approximately $20,000 to $35,000. Researchers are notified of their award in December or January.
Grant proposals should include the following:
• Research goals
• Plans for measuring results and reporting progress
• Criteria for success
• Allocation of funds
• Key staff participation
Grant recipients will be required to report progress semi-annually. Should
you be interested in receiving a request for proposal or have any questions
about the process, please contact Mimi Singh, Chair of Research and
Education Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
