Dr. Stephen Greenhouse 2020 Grant Recipients, Stephanie and Dale, cradle their son, DJ, who was born in early 2021.

“I’m so grateful for these Cade families who share the same pain and can empathize...and in some cases, we are able to share the wins as a result from these grants.”

Shady Grove Fertility (SGF), in partnership with the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation, is offering families seeking assistance to build their family the opportunity to apply for family-building grants of up to $10,000 each. Together, SGF and the Cade Foundation offer three grants:

  • Cade Family Building Grant, sponsored by Cade Foundation
  • Dr. Stephen Greenhouse Grant, sponsored by SGF
  • Savannah Grant, sponsored by SGF

SGF’s grants are exclusively for patients seeking treatment at SGF. All SGF patients who apply for the two SGF grants will also be automatically entered into the Cade Foundation Family Building Grant pool at no charge. Interested applicants are reminded that the Spring 2021 grant application pool closes on February 1, 2021, with the Fall 2021 applications opening later this year.

The grants have changed the lives of more than 100 families to date, including 2020 Dr. Stephen Greenhouse Grant recipient, Stephanie, who shares, “I’m so grateful for these Cade families who share the same pain and can empathize...and in some cases, we are able to share the wins as a result from these grants.”

Shady Grove Fertility Grant Information

The Dr. Stephen Greenhouse Grant is specifically designated for SGF patients to honor the memory and legacy of Dr. Greenhouse, an SGF physician and practice leader who died in an accident in July of 2018. Dr. Greenhouse was a well-respected leader and role model and known for his endless and tireless devotion to his life’s work — supporting his patients in overcoming infertility. Dr. Greenhouse was a strong supporter of the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation and attended many Cade Foundation events with his family over the years.

In 2010, the Cade Foundation established the Savannah Grant, a family building grant that provides up to $10,000 for in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at SGF. This grant is in honor of Savannah Caroline Pereira, a SGF baby who tragically died in March 2010. In total the Savannah Fund has raised more than $126,000 to celebrate Savannah’s memory and to support families struggling with infertility. To date, the Savannah Grant has supported eight families.

To qualify for the grants, applicants must be:

  • diagnosed with infertility by a doctor, and
  • be a legal permanent U.S. citizen.

Only one registration is required per applicant regardless of whether the applicant is an individual or a couple. Applicants will be notified by email about funding decisions by June 1, 2021, followed by a formal celebration at the Cade Foundation Family Building Gala on November 20, 2021, in Baltimore.

To apply for these grants, please submit an application for the Cade Foundation Family Building Grant. To make a contribution in support of these grants, please visit the Cade Foundation.
