The J Homer Butler Foundation focuses on the relief, care, and assistance of those with Hansen’s disease (leprosy) in the medical missions of Roman Catholic institutions in third-world countries. We also now provide grants to charities that focus on the treatment of other chronic diseases including HIV/AIDS, congenital diseases and food/waterborne diseases.
Our grants must be directed toward the medical condition of those with chronic diseases. Grants can be used for purposes such as medicines, medical supplies, durable medical equipment, and direct medical assistance.
International organizations with a 501(c)(3) US sponsor
If your organization is not a US based 501(c)3 non-profit, then you will need to upload two letters:
In Part I, upload a letter of recommendation from a local diocesan bishop indicating knowledge of your organization and the work you do in your local community as consistent with the principles of the bishop's diocese.
In Part II, upload a letter/contract with a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit showing their agreement to sponsor your organization, receive funds from JHB Foundation, and forward those funds in their entirety in either US dollars or the current equivalent amount in local currency.
