"Yes You Can" Grant

Dick and Judy Hoyt’s
“Yes You Can” Grants

The Hoyt Foundation is proud to be offering Dick and Judy Hoyt “Yes You Can” Grants to families to support inclusion. Team Hoyt has raised funds and awareness since 1977. In 1989 the Hoyt Family, parents Dick and Judy along with sons Rick, Rob and Russ, formed the Hoyt Foundation. The Foundation is now in a position to give back by supporting families to provide opportunities for inclusion for their child with a disability the way Dick and Judy did for Rick. Families with a child with a disability can request grants from $5,000 to $25,000 to help their child be included alongside their non-disabled peers.

Applications will be open and accepted January, 10, 2024 – March 8, 2024. Grant recipients will be announced on June 1, 2024.
