IM ABLE Grants are awarded to disabled individuals and supporting organizations and provide hand-cycles, adaptive skis and instructional training programs for those in need. Our purpose is to unleash the potential in physically challenged children and adults to be more active, enjoy the benefits of physical fitness, and spend more time in the great outdoors.
Individuals and Organizations must submit an IM ABLE Grant Inquiry and return it to the Foundation Board for award consideration. Subsequent interviews and further information may be required before final decisions are made. Currently we accept applicants from the Mid-Atlantic region only defined as the following states: PA, NJ, MD, DE, DC, and NY.
Applicants who do not complete the entire application will not be reviewed.
Applications will be reviewed four times a year with the following deadlines:
• February 1st
• May 1st
• August 1st
• November 1st
Award criterion for individuals is primarily based on the following variables:
Consideration of the physical condition, limitations, and potential of the applicant.
Financial challenges or hardship.
A demonstrated commitment by the candidate to become more active.
Preferred consideration will be given to registered 501 (c) (3) organizations. Applicants must provide a detailed description of patient disabilities. Organizations must show a demonstrated need for award grants and specify how IM ABLE funding will be used to enrich the lives of the individuals they serve.
Individuals and Organizations receiving grants from the Foundation must agree to a “IM ABLE” success story and profile on the IM ABLE website, organization brochures, and other marketing materials. This profile may include photographs and moving pictures designed to inspire other individuals in support of the Foundations stated mission and ongoing initiatives.
