The Hanger Foundation
Driven by the vision that all people deserve to feel empowered and to live life as fully as possible, the Hanger Foundation actively partners with grassroots nonprofit organizations and universities to unlock experiences and opportunities that might otherwise be inaccessible to people living with limb loss and physical challenges.
Together, we are breaking down barriers and transforming lives.
Positively impacting the lives of those in need
Since its inception in 2009, the Hanger Foundation has given $4 million in grants to 96 non-profit organizations sharing our mission to empower people with physical challenges to live life as fully as possible. With your help, we know that we can do even more.
Giving back to the O&P community
The Hanger Foundation supports the orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) community through our grants and scholarships. Our Empowerment Grants support non-profit organizations that directly and positively impact people with physical challenges. In January 2021, the Hanger Foundation launched the Hanger Foundation Diversity Scholarship program as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion in the O&P profession.
I have always believed in the power of sport for both physical and mental well-being, but seeing my daughter Ava grow as a wheelchair basketball player has made me realize just how powerful it can be. From the connections she has formed with her coaches and teammates to the pride she has sharing what she can do with her able-bodied friends and family, wheelchair basketball has been a bright spot in the trials of the past year… Thank you, Hanger Foundation, for helping us make that happen.
