THE EMPOWERMENT FUND GRANT IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

 

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.
