Mission & Purpose:
The Brianna Fund for Children with Physical Disabilities was founded in October 1998 to assist children with physical disabilities by eliminating barriers of access to community resources. The Brianna Fund provides necessary solutions to pressing mobility issues. With the goal that children with physical disabilities will enhance their capacity for living a full and productive life, the Brianna Fund has to date provided grants to over 46 families in the Greater Springfield community.
The Brianna Fund is made up of a dedicated group of people who, in cooperation with others, want to create genuine opportunities for children with physical disabilities. We are committed to assuring that there are resources for children to grow up with physical, emotional and social independence. The families of children from birth to 22 years of age, which specifically relates to mobility and access, are eligible to receive funding and/or advocacy assistance. The BF is operated under the auspices of the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts.
