The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote awareness of infertility and serve the needs of couples struggling with infertility by providing educational resources and financial assistance for helping them grow their families.
The foundation prides itself on three main goals: to serve the community by providing education on infertility and related issues working alone as well as in partnership with other organizations; to provide financial assistance for families struggling with infertility who are either pursuing treatment or domestic adoption through grants; and to raise funds that will be used to provide grants for families pursuing fertility treatment or domestic adoption.

Family Building Grant
Each year, the Cade Foundation provides grants of up to $10,000 to infertile families to assist them with the cost of infertility treatment or domestic adoption. Click here to apply for the Family Building Grant.
Last year, the Cade Foundation established the Savannah Grant, a family building grant that will provide support to Shady Grove Fertility patients pursuing IVF. This grant, specifically designated for a Shady Grove Fertility patient, is in honor of Savannah Caroline Pereira, a SGFC baby who tragically died in March 2010. All Shady Grove Fertility patients are eligible to receive the Savannah Grant.
To apply for these grants, please submit an application for the Cade Foundation Family Building Grant. Shady Grove Patients will automatically be considered for a traditional Family Building Grant as well as the Savannah Grant. Learn more about the grants.
