Grants for Adaptive Sports Equipment

At Angle Oar, we’re driven to help as many people as possible experience the transformational and healing powers of the outdoors. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our designs, adding new products to the mix, and pointing people to other adaptive resources that will get them out on the water.

The design and materials that go into manufacturing adaptive sports equipment can be expensive, however. Fully adapting a kayak can cost upwards of $3,000 and that doesn’t even include the cost of transportation or transfer devices. These expenses put non-profits, community groups, and individuals at a disadvantage when it comes to adding adapted sports equipment to their gear collections.

One of our co-founders spent 15 years in the non-profit sector, and a major part of her responsibilities was raising funds on behalf of charitable groups through individual and corporate donors, grant writing and events.

Fundraising can be a daunting, never-ending and often thankless job. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of grant resources for 2020 that may help you in your quest to secure funding for adaptive equipment, whether that be for adapted kayaking, handcycles, wheelchair skiing, adaptive soccer or any other recreational activity.
