Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to expanding the field of therapeutic recreation by promoting evidence based practice. We take our convictions and turn them into action. We passionately fundraise throughout the year to provide grants to practitioners conducting recreational therapy research
Founded in 2009 as a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization, the Recreational Therapy Foundation (RTF) has been striving to promote recreational therapy research by providing grants and supporting the Frank N. Basile Award for Excellence within the field.
Our mission is to promote professional excellence through sponsorship and support of evidence based practice by promoting recreational therapy research, the use of innovative technology, high quality professional practice, and exceptional professional education.
Your donations go directly to providing our recreational therapy research grants and awards for Excellence in the Field of Therapeutic Recreation. Remember, we are a 501 c 3 nonprofit, so all donations are tax deductible!
