Cleftline™ Bears

Our Cleftline™ bears bring comfort to children with cleft lip and palate and help them cope with questions and anxiety they experience from having facial differences. Each bear is custom-made with stitches across its upper lip and a tag attached to the ear with our toll-free number where families can call for information about cleft lip and palate.

Information on Cleft Lip and Palate

Our booklets and factsheets address a variety of issues related to cleft lip and palate, such as speech, hearing, genetics, and what to expect during each phase of life.

We also have information on craniofacial syndromes including Pierre Robin, Crouzon, and Treacher Collins.

Student Scholarships

The Cleft Palate Foundation is pleased to award several $500 scholarships each year to full-time college students with craniofacial differences.

Thank you Cleft Palate Foundation for providing this scholarship! I am truly honored. It means so much to represent an organization that works to improve the lives of those affected by cleft lip and palate – people just like me! – Karissa Parker
