Sometimes it takes a village to make dreams come true! We’ve been fortunate enough to work with several wonderful nonprofits in the Oregon/Washington area that help fund equipment for folks with disabilities. Below are a few resources to explore if you’re looking for funding options for your adaptive cycle. While we may be able to answer basic questions about these groups, feel free to reach out to the organization directly for questions about application processes, eligibility, and deadlines!
Adaptive Cycle Grants
Wheel to Walk Foundation: Provides grants for adaptive sport equipment to children with disabilities aged 20 or younger.
Dream Factory Oregon: Provides grants to critically and chronically ill children.
