Challenged Athletes Foundation Grant

Active grants

Challenged Athletes Foundation

It is the mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) to provide opportunities and support to people with physical challenges, so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. The Challenged Athletes Foundation believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.


CAF vision is to be a recognized leader in a movement through which physically challenged athletes are accepted and respected at the same level as able-bodied athletes, to have a great and significant impact on each physically challenged athlete served, and to reach out to the physically challenged community by providing inspiration, awareness and mentoring.

I applied for the CAF grant to get my handcycle. I received this grant and the Kelly Brush Grant for my handcycle which gave me plenty of money to get everything I needed for biking including a helmet. These grants from my experience are smaller than the Kelly Brush grants so I would start with the Kelly Brush Grant first for your adaptive equipment.
