About Travis Roy Foundation, Inc.

The Travis Roy Foundation (TRF) was established in 1996 as a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of spinal cord injury survivors and their caregivers. Travis Roy launched his namesake foundation two years after surviving a catastrophic injury in his first and only hockey game playing for Boston University. Since that time, the Boston-based TRF has awarded more than 2,400 Quality of Life grants to individuals across the United States who have experienced a spinal cord injury, helping them lead more independent lives. Simultaneously, the TRF’s research grants fund scientists working tirelessly to find a breakthrough in the world of spinal cord injuries. Funding for the Travis Roy Foundation’s philanthropic efforts comes from individuals, corporations and foundations across North America.

“I enjoyed working at a nonprofit because you get to see first hand the positive changes that you are bringing to people in the community. What I liked about working at the TRF is how tight knit the employees are because it is such a small corporation. The sense of community and cooperative atmosphere made coming to work enjoyable and made me want to put in my 100% best effort. ”
