Christopher Reeve Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation’s Quality of Life Grants Program offers funds to organizations working to address the needs of persons living with paralysis, particularly spinal cord injury, their families, and caregivers. Funding is awarded in 13 categories including accessibility, advocacy, arts, assistive technology, children, counseling, education, employment, health promotion, independent living, practical service, sports and recreation, and therapeutic riding. Except for the health promotion category, the Quality of Life grants focus primarily on paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. To qualify for funding, an organization does not have to exclusively serve people with spinal cord injuries, but at least a portion of the population must have that diagnosis. The health promotion category funds organizations that address paralysis caused not only by spinal cord injuries, but by other injuries, diseases, and birth conditions. Health promotion grants are intended for programmatic activities and not solely for the purchase of equipment for use by individuals. Grants also cannot fund advocacy or food. Applications must be submitted online.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
