Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke. With 80% of strokes being preventable, we must ensure everyone is aware of the signs of a stroke, has the tools and education necessary to act FAST, and have the appropriate support network to recover after a stroke. One of the most important elements of recovering from a stroke is accessing rehabilitative therapies (physical therapy, speech therapy, or occupational therapy, among others) immediately after a stroke. We are committed to continue to help close the access gap, so that every stroke survivor isn't limited by finances to access life-changing rehabilitative therapies.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Stroke Foundation aims to support stroke survivors and their caregivers when they need it most. By developing and distributing educational content, we aim to increase the awareness of stroke and help reduce the number of people who die of a stroke. Through our Stroke Survivor Fund we are helping to close the healthcare access gap, by providing stroke survivors essential grants that cover some of the costs of physical, speech and occupational therapies.

Our volunteer-run organization collaborates with subject matter experts, healthcare professionals and others to develop and disseminate content through our social media channels, website and print material.

At the beginning of 2024, we have distributed more than $10,000 in funds to stroke survivors to help them access physical, speech and occupational therapies.
