Mission Statement

The Arthritis Foundation's mission is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

EIN: 80-0518955


The Arthritis Foundation is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of arthritis, a disease which must be taken as seriously as other chronic diseases because of its devastating consequences.

We are leading the way to conquer the nation's leading cause of disability through increased education, outreach, research, advocacy and other vital programs and services.

Our goal is to reduce by 20 percent the number of people suffering from arthritis-related physical activity limitations by 2030.

Make Arthritis Unacceptable: We build involvement in the cause via advocacy, events, fundraising appeals, media relations and consumer information.

Provide access to the information and resources needed to minimize the impact of arthritis: We mobilize funds and capacity to create broader reach and meaningful engagement that helps people adopt and maintain healthy behaviors.

Drive a strategic research agenda: We mobilize public and private funding as well as societal alignment around goals and strategies that offer major benefits for people with arthritis.

Influence policies and strategies to produce better outcomes for people with arthritis: We mobilize support for public and private policies that support arthritis prevention, innovation and access to quality care.

Reduce arthritis-related disparities in health and health care: We create greater capacity to assist underserved populations that have a significant arthritis burden.
