The California Physical Therapy Fund was established in 1977 as a means by which the association could provide financial assistance to students in the form of loans. Today, the FUND is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization similar to the PT Foundation and provides research grants solely to California members. The mission of the CAL-PT-FUND is to advance the science and practice of physical therapy by providing grant support for physical therapist researchers in California. The CAL-PT-FUND is committed to building the body of knowledge to support evidence-based high-quality, cost-effective physical therapy. The principal goals of the Fund:
Carry out fundraising activities to support physical therapist researchers in California
Provide grant support for emerging physical therapist researchers in California to launch productive research careers
Disseminate findings from research funded by the CAL-PT-FUND, to enhance evidence-based physical therapy practice in California
Collaborate with the PT Foundation to supplement grant-awarded physical therapist researchers and scholarship recipients from California and national research initiatives
Fundraising efforts include holding events, such as the Annual "Barrels & Brews" celebration, and soliciting PTs, PTAs, and students in California to become a “Friend of the Fund.”
