About American Physical Therapy Association/Foundation for Physical Therapy
The Foundation for Physical Therapy is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization governed by a Board of Trustees. Our sole purpose is to fund physical therapy research through grants, scholarships, and fellowships. Through these investments, researchers go on to yield exceptional research that helps us to learn more about the efficacy of physical therapy practices, pioneer breakthrough treatments, and build the evidence-base to define the value of physical therapy among payers, other health care professions, and patients. We create a pipeline for future researchers and sow the seeds for new research to come.
The Foundation relies on the donations of individuals, corporations and organizations to advance its mission. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), a 501(c) (6) organization, is a benefactor of the Foundation. The Foundation was established with initial seed money from APTA members. The Foundation and APTA are separate, but philosophically linked organizations that share a decades-long partnership.
