The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.
The Arthritis Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Founded in 1948, with headquarters in Atlanta, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. The foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.
The Arthritis Foundation Upper Midwest Region has offices in each state it serves in the four-state area of North Dakota (Fargo), Minnesota (St. Paul), South Dakota (Sioux Falls) and Wisconsin (West Allis, Green Bay and Madison). Volunteer opportunities exist across the entire area served.
