Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation

The Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation (CRPF) is committed to funding research that develops treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other central nervous system disorders. The Foundation also vigorously works to improve the quality of life for people living with disabilities through its grants program, paralysis resource center and advocacy efforts.

In just a few years’ time, CRPF has given $22 million in research grants to the world’s best neuroscientists. CRPF grants are catalytic. We support new initiatives, take smart risks, and make sure our research dollars are spent to do the most good. And the research we’re funding has the potential to cure not only paralysis, but other devastating diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cancer, juvenile diabetes, ALS and heart disease.

In addition, through our Quality of Life Grants program, CRPF has awarded more than $1 million in grants to organizations that help people with disabilities live more independently and in a manner that is dictated by their abilities, not their disability.
