Grants & Equipment

Triumph Foundation assists people with spinal cord injury (SCI) to get necessary equipment, supplies, and services. Individuals who are dealing with paralysis are often discharged from a hospital without a wheelchair to go home in; without necessary supplies for daily care; without the ability to enter their home due to a lack of accessibility; and without other essential goods and services.

These critical items will enable someone to live a more functional, fulfilling, and independent life, but inadequate health insurance coverage and financial hardship keep it out of reach. Triumph works to bridge that gap thru our Keep Moving Forward (KMF) Grant program, our Employment Achievement Award, and our Equipment & Supply Exchange.
