Kelly Brush Foundation Grants
KBF: Path2Active Scholarships
Getting back into sports after an injury can be challenging. The KBF’s new Path2Active Scholarships provide financial support to individuals who want to try a new sport, test out a piece of equipment, or build skills by attending camps, clinics, or other adaptive sports programs.
Open to people in the US who have suffered traumatic (non-congenital) spinal cord injuries. If this is you, apply here for up to $500 to get you on your Path2Active. Applications are open year-round and are approved on a rolling basis.Learn More & Apply

Through the Active Fund, we provide grants for people in the US who have suffered traumatic (non-congenital) spinal cord injuries to purchase adaptive sports equipment.
