What We Fund

Special Projects

In addition to our standing portfolio competitions, which are at the forefront of our funding efforts, the Foundation undertakes and solicits Special Project grants that may be focused on spinal cord injury relevant goals or reflect the philanthropic vision and values exemplified by Craig H. Neilsen during his lifetime. These Special Projects are initiated by the Foundation and are by invitation only.
