Our Grant Process is Postponed
Due to Covid-19 our application process had to be postponed.
Thank you for your interest in applying for a WLSFA weight loss surgery grant this year.
While it was a difficult decision, our board decided, in light of COVID-19, that there is a need for us to delay acceptance of grant applications at this time.
Our annual Making a Difference Conference is our major source of fundraising income to fund these surgical grants. This conference, historically, takes place in March and the application process opens up in August. Due to Covid-19, WLSFA was unable to safely host our National Conference in 2020 or 2021.
We cannot reschedule the application opening date at this time, however, if you have signed up to be on our contact list, you will be notified of any new updates concerning the rescheduling. There is no need to contact us, as we cannot respond regarding the new application opening date.
We know that this is a difficult time for you and we share in your disappointment of the need for us to make this decision.
