THE EMPOWERMENT FUND APPLICATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.

The Quarter 4 grant cycle is open to those injured participating in outdoor sports and those who suffered an SCI, TBI or other life-changing injury outside of the outdoor sports community requesting adaptive sports equipment. This grant cycle only funds adaptive equipment. Application must be submitted between July 1 – Sept. 1. Budget must be submitted between Sept. 1 – Sept. 10. Applicants will be notified by Oct. 1.

THE HIGH FIVES FOUNDATION

We are the safety net of the outdoor community.

High Fives focuses on preventing life-changing injuries and provides resources and hope if they happen. Created as a way to "pay-it-forward" in 2009 after the founder's own recovery, the Foundation has since expanded to help hundreds of injured individuals and veterans from across the country. The High Fives Foundation is a California-based, national 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
