How far in advance must I submit a request?
We recommend a minimum of eight weeks in advance of the activity. It is important to note, NuVasive Grants operates on a calendar fiscal year with a limited allocation of funding. All requests are evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. For a greater likelihood of budget availability, we recommend submitting a request as early as possible in the calendar year.
Can I submit a request after the submission deadline for the current year?
Yes, all requests submitted throughout the year will be considered; however, we strongly recommend that requests are submitted in advance of the deadlines provided for greater likelihood of budget availability.
How will I know that my request has been received?
A confirmation email will be sent to the requester when the application and supporting documents are received.
How long is the review process?
Each request is reviewed by the NuVasive Grants Committee who meet once a month. Please allow eight weeks for review and committee decision. If a request requires expedition, please provide justification as an attachment with the email submission to [email protected].
Will the grant funding that I receive be reportable under the Sunshine Act?
Certain transfers of value to U.S. physicians or U.S. teaching hospitals, whether provided directly or through affiliated organizations, must be disclosed in accordance with the Sunshine Act.
Is there a difference between International and U.S. grant requests?
Yes, regulatory and compliance rules vary by country. As a global organization, we support activities based on the local laws. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions specific to your region.
Can I submit a request for an exhibit fee only?
Exhibit fee requests are managed by the NuVasive Event Marketing Team. Please send request and any supporting materials to [email protected].
Do you offer in kind donations of product?
All product requests for patient use should made through the NuVasive Spine Foundation. Product to be used for non-patient research and/or educational purposes should follow the grants research or education request requirements.
Can a non-spine charitable organization apply for a grant donation?
NuVasive grants are made based on alignment with the NuVasive mission. If your organization is not spine research and/or education focused, please email your request to NuVasive Human Resources at [email protected].
I have a copy of a 2009 W-9 form, is this the current version?
No, the current downloadable W-9 form can be found on the IRS website. NuVasive Corporate Grants can only accept the current version of the form that is signed and dated.
