Bear Empowerment

Each year, support service grants are awarded across the nation to pediatric oncology facilities and organizations for programs or projects that directly impacts patients, their families and hospital facilities.

2013 Grants

**Guidelines and application for Bear Empowerment (support service) funding for 2013 are available HERE and due April 5, 2013.  

NOTICE: 

For 19 years, Bear Necessities has been supporting service grants to pediatric oncology facilities and organizations for programs and projects that directly impacts patients, families and hospital facilities.  Although, there are countless programs and projects that we would like to continue to support, Bear Necessities will now re-focus its efforts to make a larger impact on the underfunded research programs and projects across the nation.

The 2013 grants will be our last year that we will award any funding for Bear Empowerment.
