A unique organization focused solely on funding early stage science in the pursuit of treating and curing all forms of arthritis. Our son was diagnosed in his twenties and this organization has given us all hope and inspired him to pursue research himself.

According to the CDC, 23% -- over 53 million adults -- have some form of arthritis in the U.S. I know that over 90% of my support for ANRF goes directly to funding research at major universities that will lead to new treatments. This is a quality organization that strives to ease the suffering of so many.

Arthritis National Research Foundation is one of the only organizations that dedicate their time and money to innovative early stage research to find a cure for the for the debilitating effects of all types of Arthritis. The successful research goes onto receive money from the National Institute of Health, The Stem Cell Institute and other major Pharmaceutical and research companies. I have served on the Board for the last 10 + years and see the areas of research diversify substantially . I am most interested in the research of the degenerative effects of Ostio and Rheumatoid Arthritis .As we age this disease seems to affect every single person in some way and we desperately need a cure!

I have been involved with this organization for more than five years and I am proud to both donate my time and money as there is no other charity in the arthritis disease sector that is exclusively focused on funding early stage research. With a 50 year history this organization has donated millions to help advance early stage research to help advance both diagnostics and therapeutics to alleviate the suffering of so many patients. In 2020 despite the troubled economic environment the organization is funding 12 new research grants.

I met the people behind this organization long before I actually knew about the fact that it brought Enbrel and subsequent TNF Inhibitor biologics to the market - to millions afflicted with inflammatory auto-immune diseases and what not (and thank God for that because I would not be walking today or doing my current line of work were it not for Dr. Gale Granger who pinpointed the TNF Factor - an amazing human being who was funded by the ANRF). The people who are the backbone of the organization are not only working on a highly professional and efficient level, they are my friends. I have not even had the chance to mention their most promising drug as it is in trials as I write! Now THAT is exciting. Hope for a cure? MOST DEFINITELY with The Arthritis National Research Foundation, ANRF.

Simply a quick share about the quality of this Arthritis foundation. It gave me peace of mind knowing that I was giving my time and services to an efficiently run organization that has the highest rating awarded by Charity Navigator. This charity has integrity, as of this review, over 90% of the donations they receive go directly into research for the treatments of different forms of arthritis. Helping to reduce suffering and finding cures is the objective. The staff is professional, available, and very helpful to all those wanting to learn more.

My 6 year old daughter has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, and when she was diagnosed, I tried to find all the organizations I could for support with her diagnosis. The ANRF has been very helpful and personal with us, and I feel very supported by their endeavors. I have received helpful items from them, and personalized emails which mean a great deal to me. I love that they do have a strong focus on childhood arthritis, including the Kelly Award - a substantial research grant for childhood arthritis. Those who donate to the ANRF have the opportunity to direct their donation to this specific award. 91% of all donations is used to directly fund research. They are definitely my arthritis charity of choice.

I was looking for a high quality organization that was linked to arthritis research. I researched several organizations on Charity Navigator. This one clearly rose to the top. As a donor, 90%+ of my money goes directly to arthritis research compared to about 20% for another organization in this field. That really appeals to me. They have a 4 star rating, the highest possible, in Charity Navigator. I subsequently became a member of the Advisory Board for the organization and recently led a Strategic Planning retreat with the Board. They are a highly committed group with a passion for supporting scientists who are looking for a cure for arthritis. It is likely that the underlying causes of arthritis are similar for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoarthritis, juvenile arthritis and many related autoimmune diseases. I am very proud to be a donor and to be a member of the Advisory Board.
