In honor of our 25th anniversary, we are asking our loyal supporters to set a Goal of 25 + Give $25, and then share with others.

 

  1. Set a goal of 25 reps of any exercise of your choice in honor of Team CAF

Examples: 25 sit-ups, 25 pushups, 25 jumping jacks, 25 sun salutations, 25 laps, 25 lunges or even 25 miles.

 

  1. Share what exercise you accomplished for #TeamCAF on social media.

 Take a picture of you holding this pledge sign.

 

  1. Give $25, and your impact will double. Thanks to a generous CAF supporter, all donations on Giving Tuesday will be matched dollar for dollar.

Match Donations for Giving Tuesday

We are fortunate for a generous supporter who is matching all donations for Giving Tuesday. On top of that, this year, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match donations up to $7 million to US nonprofits on Facebook. Donations to CAF made on Facebook are eligible from a match from Facebook, which can then be matched from our CAF supporter, tripling the impact!

Why support CAF?

 

challenge_athlete

 

We are committed to supporting individuals with physical challenges by giving them access to sports and an active lifestyle through adaptive sport grants, camps and clinics, and through creating community and mentorship opportunities. For many individuals with physical challenges an active lifestyle is out of reach due to the financial barriers associated with the costs of adaptive sports equipment, coaching, and training. That is where we come in.

In 25 years, we have raised $100 million and given out 23,000 individual grants transforming thousands and thousands of lives. Our support helps veterans, first responders, cancer survivors, trauma survivors, individuals with spinal cord injury, individuals with limb loss and more.
