The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) established the Ascot Fund to help provide financial assistance towards the purchase of a hairpiece to individuals who have alopecia areata and are struggling financially.
Funding for this program is limited and awards are granted based on availability, up to $300. After your application is received, you will be notified of your status within 30 days. If your application meets all of the criteria specified in the application and approved, you will receive an email confirmation with the amount you have been awarded. Awards granted will be mailed directly to the business shown on the application form. Hairpieces costing more than $1,500 will not be considered. If the price of the hairpiece costs more than the amount awarded and you would like to claim the balance, you will need to provide a doctor's prescription to your insurance company.
Thank you for your interest in the Ascot Fund, and we look forward to assisting you.
