Give to the Shawn Graf Memorial Fund

On June 23, 2014, we lost Shawn Graf, a valuable member of our family here at the Neuroscience Collaborative Center. Both as a University of Louisville employee and as a participant in multiple research studies, Shawn worked tirelessly to help find treatment therapies for individuals with spinal cord injury. His parents would like to continue Shawn’s work through the Shawn Graf Memorial Fund to assist the ultimate goal of achieving Victory Over Paralysis.

Provide Support Towards Needed Equipment

Our equipment needs vary from experiment to experiment and program to program. Your dollars assist in every possible way to provide equipment for clinical purposes and to advance our research capabilities.

Give to the NeuroRecovery Support Fund

This fund was created to better support individuals and families from around the country interested in participating in research with KSCIRC. This fund attempts to alleviate some of the financial burden of relocating to Louisville, KY in order to participate in research with KSCIRC. This fund was established to support the development of local programs to help meet basic needs of research participants as well as provide reimbursement for travel, housing, and other research participation-related expenses.

Because affordable and accessible housing continues to be such a need, the long-term goal of this fund is to raise enough money to establish a comfortable and convenient place for participants and their families/caregivers to stay during their involvement in research. Your gift to support our participants who courageously live every day with spinal cord injuries is a gift to continue supporting the state-of-the-art research taking place with KSCIRC.
