VIM Receives Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Grant
VIM Berkshires gratefully acknowledges receipt of a $6,000 gift from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant. This grant supported the construction of the wheelchair lift inside the clinic and the wheelchair ramp leading up to the clinic front door.
VIM’s award was one of 79 grants totaling over $575,704 awarded by the Reeve Foundation to nonprofit organizations nationwide that provide more opportunities, access, and daily quality of life for individuals living with paralysis, their families, and caregivers. Conceived by the late Dana Reeve, the program has awarded over 2,700 grants totaling over $20 million since 1999.
“We are very grateful to the Reeve Foundation,” said VIM Board Chair Arthur Peisner. “We understand that the grantee review board awarded a significant number of grants this year for modification projects and we feel our recent clinic renovation fit that category well.”
