Donate a wheelchair, or part(s) of a wheelchair

Sport-specific wheelchairs are a high cost for our athletes. Your wheelchair specific donation will help build a wheelchair for our athletes and teams. Buy a portion of the wheelchair and help give an athlete the ability to excel in his/her sport.

Once all of the parts are donated for a complete wheelchair:

  1. An athlete will be selected to receive the wheelchair. Our selection process is internal, and based on wheelchair type (manual vs. power), athlete need, household income, consistent program/team participation, and a desire to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
  2. The athlete will be measured and assessed for their specific wheelchair needs
  3. The wheelchair order will be placed
  4. Once the wheelchair is delivered, a date and time will be set to present the wheelchair to the athlete. Each donor is welcome to attend this ceremony as our special guest. All donors will receive a picture of the athlete in his/her new wheelchair.

Manual Sports Wheelchair

This type of wheelchair is used by individuals who can manually push their wheelchairs. Our very discounted cost for a basic sports wheelchair is $1,700. Once athlete-specific specifications are made, manual wheelchairs are $2,000. The price breakdown is approximate to allow for the building and shipping of a complete chair.

Note: If you would like to purchase multiples of one item, you will be able to change the quantity after the item is in your cart.

Power Sports Wheelchair

The Strikeforce Power Wheelchair is for our power wheelchair users who primarily play power soccer. This is an advanced wheelchair, and is incredibly fast! Power wheelchairs require a fair amount of custom equipment based on the athlete’s specific needs. The base wheelchair cost starts at $7,700, however customizations can easily add on another $2,000 (most of our athletes require a chair that is $8,710). A Strikeforce chair allows our athletes to compete at a higher level of power soccer. Our goal is to raise enough funds for at least 4 complete chairs that the teams and athletes can share the use of. The price breakdown is approximate to allow for the building and shipping of a complete chair.

Note: If you would like to purchase multiples of one item, you will be able to change the quantity after the item is in your cart.

Sponsor an athlete or team

Individuals or groups have the opportunity to sponsor an athlete or a team. Team fees, tournaments, and travel are high costs for our athletes and teams. FWWAA can pair the donor(s) with an athlete or team that needs additional support. FWWAA has Athlete Development Funds (ADF) and Team Development Funds (TDF) established to ease this process. Please contact us to receive a list of athletes or teams.
