Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation


The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.


The PRC consists of a variety of services, communities, and programs, including:

Information specialists are trained to help anyone – from newly-paralyzed individuals and their family members, to persons who have lived with disabilities for quite some time – by providing individualized support and information with the ability to respond in over 170 languages.

Peer & Family Support Program fosters peer-to-peer support, via trained and certified mentors. Our ultimate goal is to help individuals find support and resources among the communities who best understand the day-to-day realities and long-term challenges individuals living with paralysis face.

Our Quality of Life Grants Program has awarded over 2,500 grants, totaling more than $19 million in financial support for fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation’s mission. The grants focus on programs or projects that foster community engagement and involvement, while promoting health and wellness for individuals living with paralysis.

The Military & Veterans Program (MVP) supports the unique needs of current service members and veterans, regardless of when they served or how their injury was obtained.

Advocacy/Policy programs are designed to not only help individuals advocate for themselves, but also to advance important issues for the greater community of individuals with paralysis.


Since 1982, the Reeve Foundation has awarded nearly $120 million to labs around the globe to accelerate scientific breakthroughs across the field. To achieve our mission – cures for spinal cord injury – requires the collaboration of the most renowned minds in neuroscience.
