Driven by our Vision, Mission and Values
Sharing the vision of our Founder, Craig H. Neilsen, the Foundation is committed to a world where individuals with spinal cord injuries, and those who care for them, live full and productive lives as active participants in their communities.
We coordinate and collaborate with partners to push boundaries. Knowing how much more we can achieve as a community, we encourage the sharing of ideas and resources to create and capitalize on new opportunities.
Leading by example, we seek visionary ideas that break down barriers, expand opportunities, and promote equity to improve life after spinal cord injury for people of all backgrounds.
Funding both community programs and scientific research, we encourage transformative ideas supported by a clear vision and approach to achieving improvement in the lives of individuals with spinal cord injuries.
