Thursday, August 6, 2015

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, a leading nonprofit dedicated to improving quality of life for individuals living with paralysis, announced it has awarded $704,732 in Quality of Life grants to 84 nonprofit organizations nationwide. Conceived by the late Dana Reeve, Quality of Life grants support fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation's mission and commitment to foster community engagement, enhance independence and promote life-changing initiatives.  The program has awarded over 2,500 grants, totaling nearly $19 million since its inception in 1999.

Awarded twice yearly, grant requests are evaluated and scored based on a rigorous review process to determine funding for organizations that improve daily life for those living with paralysis, as well as their families and caregivers.
