Join in the #GivingTuesday Movement: Make a Donation to United Spinal Association.

Your generosity will enable United Spinal Association to offer valuable programs and services to all people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D) across the country, including our disabled veterans.

Some of the things we do, thanks to you:



What’s Giving Tuesday?

In the same way that retail stores come together to offer deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday brings the nonprofit community together on a universal platform to raise awareness about the importance of supporting our valuable missions and work.

We have two days that are good for the economy. Now we have a day that’s good for the soul.

Why Support United Spinal Association?

United Spinal Association is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of all people living with SCI/D, including veterans, and providing support and information to loved ones, care providers and professionals. By supporting United Spinal Association you will help us empower people with disabilities of all ages to achieve greater independence and pursue active and rewarding lifestyles.


We were there for our paralyzed veterans returning home after World War II who needed better health care, higher paying jobs, and greater access to housing and transportation. Since then, United Spinal Association has continued to advocate on the front lines to ensure equal rights for Americans with SCI/D. From writing portions of the Americans with Disabilities Act and helping our disabled veterans transition back into their communities to providing programs and services that empower wheelchair users to maximize their independence––we have been honored to serve the disability community for over 65 years.

Check out our historic timeline.
