The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation has proudly granted funds to non-profits serving individuals with disabilities for the past 17 years.
The Foundation grants money to non-profits serving in in one of three categories: Non-profits that allow participants to take part in activities that engage both the body and the mind, groups that provide solutions to barriers that are preventing individuals from everyday activities, and organizations that deal with health and personal issues for individuals living with a disability.
Any recognized 501(c)(3) organization that provides services to individuals with paralysis is encouraged to apply for a grant through the program. Every approved group will receive up to $25,000 in assistance.
To date, the organization has granted more than $18 million. If you’re involved with a non-profit that fits into these parameters, encourage them to apply for a grant.
There are two application periods per year, and applications can be submitted online through the Reeve Foundation website.
The Reeve Foundation does not award grants to individuals, but the Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) can help individuals identify resources that provide financial assistance. Please call the PRC at 1-800-539-7309 and request to speak with a Paralysis Information Specialist if you need help.

These grants continue to make life better for people with disabilities. The Reeve Foundation is a great place to go for a wealth of information, providing the best knowledge, resources, support, and community to empower those living with paralysis and spinal cord injury.
