This winter DSES received $97,000 from a variety of granting agencies to fund athlete participation in our adaptive sports program.
The majority of funding came from the Department of Veteran Affairs who helped us bring in 55 unique Wounded Warriors to a variety of winter sport camps and opportunities. We will also continue to use this grant funding for our summer programing.
Disabled Sports USA has also been a larger grantor, specifically for participants with Spinal Cord Injuries. Plus, we recently received funding from the Employee’s Community Foundation of the Boeing Corporation to purchase a Nissin Mono Ski for the next winter season.
We have already started grant applications for next year and expect great things to come!
