CPF is pleased to offer custom-made Gund teddy bears with cleft lip repair stitches across their lip. Donations to the Bear Fund help subsidize the cost of the bears for families around the world. Read more about CPF’s Bears for the Kids project.

Student Scholarship Fund

Each year CPF offers a minimum of eight college scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students with facial differences. With increased awareness of the scholarships comes greater competitiveness for the available monies. CPF aims to award scholarships to as many qualified applicants as possible. Supporting the Student Scholarship Fund means helping outstanding students like the 2015 scholarship recipients pay for a portion of their higher education.
