Making Recreation Accessible to All
The Foundation transforms lives through elevating the goals and ideals of the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association. Founded in 2010, the Foundation had supported initiatives such as the Carolyn Nagle Sensory Room, Dr. William Kelly Resource Library, Hardship Grants, Break Bags, SootheSpace, and has many new projects to come.
Through sponsorships and partnerships, hundreds of fundraising events, individual giving, and more, the Foundation enriches the lives of individuals with disabilities and families and helps them enjoy healthy, active, and fulfilling lives.
