Philanthropic arm of Permobil will provide support to non-profit organizations and individuals with mobility limitations
Permobil officially launched the Permobil Cares Foundation at the International Seating Symposium on March 1. As the philanthropic arm of Permobil, the Permobil Cares Foundation believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to reach his or her dreams without limitations. No person should be excluded from opportunity due to a disability. This is the heart of why Permobil Cares.
Beginning March 1, proceeds from every Permobil, TiLite and ROHO product sold go towards funding the Foundation.
“This is a very exciting time for us at Permobil,” said Larry Jackson, president of Permobil North Amierca. “Permobil’s founder Per Uddén built the company with one belief: that every person has the right to mobility and independence. That same belief is as strong today as it was on day one. With the help of the Permobil Foundation, we hope that we can build impactful relationships with our customers and non-profit partners helping to fulfill a life of independence.”
The Permobil Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life by empowering strength and independence through community support, employee engagement and grant funding. The Foundation will work in partnership with non-profit organizations and agencies to provide support and services so individuals can live a life without limitations. Some areas of support include sponsoring fundraising events, providing college scholarships for our customers, volunteering in the communities we serve, and through donations of advanced rehab mobility solutions and accessories.
“Working for Permobil, you see the passion that goes into building customized chairs that fit the customer’s needs,” said Ashley Davis, executive director of the Permobil Foundation. “This is why our tagline, ‘It’s a Work of Heart,’ is so fitting. Having a philanthropic arm of Permobil will allow us to create true partnerships with non-profit organizations and give back to individuals to help them reach their dreams.”
