The Brad Cohen Tourette Foundation’s grants support programs and projects that increase the socialization, achievement, and education of children with Tourettesyndrome. Within the area of socialization, the foundation makes grants that support or sponsor events and activities at the local level to encourage the socialization of children with Tourette syndrome. Within the area of achievement, the foundation supports programs that provide resources to enable achievement by children with Tourette syndrome, including but not limited to scholarships, training, and recognition. Within the area of education, the foundation seeks projects that provide information and resources to inform children and young people with Tourette syndrome and those who want to learn more. The focus should be on socialization and achievement, and not on diagnosis, medical research, medication, or therapy. Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible to apply. Significant flexibility is incorporated into the award process to permit different types of programs to be considered.
