About the Hanger Foundation
The mission of the Hanger Foundation is to advance our communities by supporting 501(c)(3) organizations that help people with physical challenges live life as fully as possible.
- To positively impact the lives of those in need
- To invest in the communities in which we live and work
- To engage our employees in charitable efforts
Hanger’s heritage of charitable giving dates back to the company’s founding in 1861. For many years, Hanger clinicians and employees consistently and generously donated millions of dollars in free care and financial contributions to a variety of causes, including hardship cases in their own communities. In 2009, Hanger formalized and increased its philanthropic work by establishing a non-profit organization, the Hanger Foundation.
Since its inception, the Hanger Foundation has given $4 million in grants to 96 non-profit organizations sharing our mission to empower people with physical challenges to live life as fully as possible.
2024 Night to Inspire
Join us for Night To Inspire in Nashville January 22 2024. The night before Hanger LIVE, we will celebrate those that empower our O&P community to live life as fully as possible. Proceeds benefit the Hanger Foundation.
The Hanger Foundation supports 501(c)(3) organizations that directly and positively impact people with physical challenges in need in the United States that fit within our focus areas. All organizations applying for grants must complete the Grant Application Process.
Hanger Foundation Diversity Scholarships supplement the cost of a two-year Masters of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics (MSPO) program and offer a two-year mentorship with the option of pursuing a residency with Hanger Clinic.
