Other Programs

Prior to the founding of the Sontag Foundation, the Sontag family was a long-standing funder of the Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF) in memory of Rick’s mother who died of complications from rheumatoid arthritis.

After the Sontag Foundation was established in 2002, the Foundation continued giving annual gifts to ANRF, establishing the Sontag Foundation Fellow award. In 2012, the Sontag Foundation donated a $1 million endowment to ANRF to fund the award in perpetuity. To learn more about the work of ANRF and how you can help, please visit their website at www.curearthritis.org.
