How to Apply

Professionals Miracles Foundation (PMF) is non-profit, charitable organization designated under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our grants are intended to help improve the lives of children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, who are faced with a lifetime medical condition or are involved in tragic accidents.

Professionals Miracles Foundation provides financial grants to sick children and their families in the Denver Metro area to help ease their burdens. Because we want to help as many children as we can, our grants are typically ~$1,000 per family. 

To qualify, applicants must:

  • Have a life-threatening or life-long debilitating illness or condition.

  • Be between the ages of birth through 18-years-old.

  • Be verified by a qualified hospital or clinic social worker, family navigator or similar professional. It is best for a family that wishes to apply to work with the professional and that the professional submits the application on behalf of the child/family.

  • Live permanently in the Denver Metropolitan Area including Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson or Elbert Counties.

 

PMF does not consider:

  • More than one application per family. Only one grant will be considered even if there are multiple children with illnesses.

  • More than one grant per child regardless of ongoing illnesses.

  • Children with:

    • Autism

    • Down Syndrome

    • Mental illnesses

    • Epilepsy

    • Diabetes

    • Cystic fibrosis

    • Asthma

    • Dental or hearing needs

    • Home renovations (these are referred to our partner, Home Builders Foundation)

    • Other illnesses or afflictions that are not life threatening or debilitating

    • "Wishes" for sick children

    • COVID related illnesses

  • Patients who are at a hospital for treatment only are not eligible even if the family is staying in the Denver Area during the treatment.

  • Travel and lodging costs for children who leave the state for treatment.

  • Funeral expenses.

  • Incomplete applications or applications not verified by a professional.

Questions about the application process can be directed to Board Secretary, Jane Prancan, jprancan@comcast.net or 303-880-3639.

 

How often do we review families requests for grants? 

We look at requests every other month. Our review process generally takes 30 days, so we ask that you submit your grant requests at least a month before our scheduled meetings. Our meetings are held in:

  • February

  • April

  • June

  • August

  • October

  • December

How to Apply for a Grant 

We will take requests from doctors, social workers and other medical personnel familiar with the circumstances of the family. We also take referrals from the families of sick and injured children themselves, or from friends and families associated with the family in need.

We have developed a simple, online grant application form that should be completed by the referring party.
