Make a difference with us

At the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation we believe in the power of "we.” For this reason our volunteers play a vital role in helping us make a difference for people living with paralysis, their family and caregivers.

Join our volunteers across the country who are dedicated to the Reeve Foundation mission and passionate for our cause. We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals and will work with you to identify volunteer opportunities that fit your interests, skills and schedule.

By investing your time and talent, you can be part of Christopher Reeve’s dream and help change lives in the here-and-now.

Get involved

There are so many ways to support the Reeve Foundation and we are open to learning about new ideas from our volunteers.

Past volunteer initiatives include:

Reeve Foundation events
From helping with registration to finding auction items, we are always looking for people to lend a hand with our events. Want to host your own event or fundraiser? We offer a toolkit to help structure your event for success and meet your fundraising goals.

Team Reeve®
You do not have to run a marathon or tackle a 5K to be part of Team Reeve. Our volunteers recruit participants, prepare care packages, manage cheer stations, create posters and host pep rallies for our main Team Reeve events. There are so many ways to cheer on and support Team Reeve!

Quality of Life Grants Program
Through our Quality of Life Grants Program, the Reeve Foundation has awarded over 26,000 grants to local and regional nonprofits across the country. These groups mirror the Reeve Foundation mission through a variety of programs.

Volunteer activities include:

  • Staff a wheelchair basketball game
  • Volunteer at an adaptive garden
  • Participate in a camp dedicated to children living with disabilities.
  • Organize an event at an adaptive playground

Gather a group of friends or speak to your company about creating an employee engagement opportunity with your colleagues.

Volunteer at the office
