Mission Statement

Wheelchair Foundation (a Division of Global Health and Education Foundation) is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and the Federal Tax ID is 94-3353881. We deliver brand new manual wheelchairs to people in need in 150+ countries worldwide. Established on June 6th, 2000 by Philanthropist Kenneth E. Behring, the Wheelchair Foundation has delivered more than 780,000 wheelchairs to people in need, free of charge.

The Wheelchair Foundation is a nonprofit organization leading an international effort to create awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities, to promote the joy of giving, create global friendship, and to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs one, but cannot afford one. For those people, the Wheelchair Foundation delivers Hope, Mobility, and Freedom.

A mobile child is able to attend school. A mobile adult is able to get a job and provide for their their family or care for the children at home so the spouse can work. An elderly person can rejoin society or family activities after years of staying in bed. The joy and hope that a simple mobility device can deliver is what gives people a new outlook on life and hope for the future.


We profoundly appreciate all of your fabulous support during the nine years of our operation. It is very heartwarming to witness the overwhelming generosity of donors and to understand how significantly their gifts impact the lives of the recipients.

Regardless of the size, all shipments include spare parts; custom logo embroidery; and Wheelchair Foundation's legendary commitment to provide hope, freedom, and mobility to individuals in need and without access to wheelchairs.
