I live outside of the United States. Can I apply for this program?
We are currently developing our international programs. Unfortunately, international product donations are not available at this time. Please check back in 2018 to learn more.
What does it mean to be a sponsored ECHO Family?
ECHO Families are those who meet the necessary criteria, are properly registered with our organization, and have been accepted by either the Application Team, or the Board of ECHO Connection (or both). Once approved, ECHO Families receive charitable donations in the form of A) CBD-based products, B) Financial Aid, or both.
ECHO Families also provide the organization with their consent to appear on and in the organization’s messaging and brand. This not only helps inform and educate the public about the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids, it also establishes a point of communication and collaboration among families.
What makes a complete application?
In order to be considered for the ECHO Family program, we do require complete applications which includes completing the application questionnaire, writing a cover letter and submission of financial data and photo. Take your time answering the questions in detail and provide the requested supporting documents. These documents allow you to explain your situation and make the case for support.
