About Us

We are one of only two organizations in the U.S. focused solely on funding arthritis research to cure arthritis. The Arthritis National Research Foundation provides initial research funding to brilliant, investigative scientists with new ideas to cure arthritis and related autoimmune diseases.

One in five Americans suffers from some form of arthritis, including 300,000 children. The arthritis research we fund covers all forms from osteoarthritis (wear and tear of joint tissues) to the autoimmune and autoinflammatory forms like rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, lupus and gout.

With 91 cents of every dollar placed directly into arthritis research programs, the Arthritis National Research Foundation is committed to research and being good stewards of our donor funds.

Charity Navigator, the leading online charity evaluation organization and our own independent review panel, have been critical in the effort to validate ANRF’s success in funding arthritis research. Having received 4-stars for 8 straight years from Charity Navigator, something only the top 2% of charities can claim, as well as an outstanding rating from the independent review, we are happy to be validated as one of the best charities in America!
