ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW 

In 2013, at the age of 17, Jack Trottier suffered a spinal cord injury while snowboarding, causing paralysis from the chest down. Less than a decade later, in 2021, the Jack Trottier Foundation opened its doors, bringing to life Jack’s goal to support others living with SCI. What started as a small grassroots organization has emerged into a leading organization supporting individuals with SCI in New England. The organization’s first initiative was grantmaking to improve quality of life for individuals with SCI. Since 2022 grantmaking has grown tenfold and JTF is on track to award 30 life-changing grants in 2024. In 2023 JTF launched its second program, Advanced Recreation Therapy and our Education Program will release our first Storytellers film in late 2024. JTF is emerging as a hub for the SCI community and its impact continues to expand.
