The Empowerment Fund provides resources and inspiration to those who suffer a life-altering injury. These include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputation or other mobility-limiting injuries that occurred in an individual's lifetime.

The resources and inspiration that High Fives provides comes in the form of Board-approved grant funding, paid to service providers in specific funding categories: living expenses, insurance, health, travel, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, and High Fives' healing network.
