SCORE (Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injuries and to funding spinal cord research to find a cure for paralysis.
SCORE aims to assist young people who have been injured while participating in sporting events or athletic recreation. SCORE endeavors to improve the quality of life for people with a spinal cord injury, assisting with the substantial out-of-pocket costs associated with obtaining the best medical care, home amenities and transportation. The end goal is to facilitate rehabilitation and independent living.
SCORE is also dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis and allocates a substantial portion of its funds to emerging researchers pursuing innovative SCI research. SCORE acts as a seed funder for researchers whose research is at an early stage and thus may not be eligible for many federal and state grants.
SCORE operates under the support of Community Partners, a leader in managing non-profit funds.
