The Joy Fund


The Joy Fund was created with a generous grant from the Henrietta Aigner and Joy Baldwin Family Foundation, and is set aside to help those moving to Colorado for legal access to cannabinoid therapies. It is named for Joy Baldwin, who suffered from ALS and used medical cannabis for relief from her symptoms. Through her personal experience, she was acutely aware of the needs of families moving to other states seeking reprieve from various ailments. We are honored to have known Joy and continue her legacy of generosity.

With this fund, our goal is to alleviate the financial strain of interstate relocation to gain access to cannabinoid therapies. Applicants who are accepted will receive a two-part award: a $2,500 interest-free loan and a $2,500 relocation grant. The award can be used at the recipient's discretion. We ask for repayment of the loan in order to pay it forward, allowing us to assist more families in need.

Grants are Temporarily Unavailable

The Joy Fund is temporarily exhausted; all funds have been used to relocate those seeking improved quality of life through cannabinoid treatment. The success stories are wonderful!

Sorry we can't help with other relocations. Perhaps you can find improvement from products available online. Contact us and we'll be happy to help you explore the options.
