Providing Mobility For Those In Need
Wheelchair Foundation (a Division of Global Health & Education Foundation) is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and the Federal Tax ID is 94-3353881. We deliver brand new manual wheelchairs to people in need in 150+ countries worldwide. Established on June 6th, 2000 by Philanthropist Kenneth E. Behring, the Wheelchair Foundation has delivered more than 1,000,000 wheelchairs to people in need, free of charge.
The Wheelchair Foundation is a nonprofit organization leading an international effort to create awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities, to promote the joy of giving, create global friendship, and to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs one, but cannot afford one. For those people, the Wheelchair Foundation delivers Hope, Mobility, and Freedom.
Every donation helps support our mission to provide mobility to a person in need. When you make a donation, you are eligible to receive the book “Road to Purpose” for FREE by request! For a donation of $150 or more, you also receive a personalized presentation certificate that includes a photograph of a wheelchair recipient. The certificate can be personalized as a gift in honor or memory of a special person in your life, or to mark a special occasion. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. For international shipping, add $12 to your donation.
We profoundly appreciate all of your fabulous support during the nine years of our operation. It is very heartwarming to witness the overwhelming generosity of donors and to understand how significantly their gifts impact the lives of the recipients.
The entire cost of worldwide distribution of a wheelchair from start to finish is $150. If you, your organization, or your corporation would like to sponsor a full container of wheelchairs to a specific country, you have the choice of two container sizes. Regardless of the size, all shipments include spare parts; custom logo embroidery; and Wheelchair Foundation’s legendary commitment to provide hope, freedom, and mobility to individuals in need and without access to wheelchairs.
