Founded in 1998, The Eric Fund’s mission is inspired by the memory of Eric Savader who died in 1997 from cancer and who worked on behalf of several disability causes.

The Eric Fund is honored to continue to fund life-changing equipment for people with disabilities in our community.

Other funding streams often fall short in providing the vital technology and equipment that can make such an important difference in peoples’ lives. Thanks to our generous supporters, we are able to fill some of these gaps in the Washington area.
— Mary Hanley, President of The Eric Fund.

In the past 18 years, The Eric Fund helped 82 people by granting more than $170,000 worth of assistive technology and equipment.
