Empowering qualified amputee candidates with a financial grant focused on athletics, education and the arts is our unique function to the amputee community. The fund is designed to allow amputees to customize their grant request based on the interests and goals of the beneficiary.

There are hundreds of programs and ideas around the country that would qualify for consideration. Our primary function is to be a resource tool that will provide a building-block for character and identity development as an amputee leader. Some of our past grants include book publishing to competitive amputee athletic event subsidies. We encourage our grantees to think broadly when applying for a grant.
