PAUL’S PALS FUNDS WORLDS OF OPPORTUNITY FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES.

Upgrades, technology, and equipment like these open up worlds of opportunity for children with disabilities. But they require investments beyond the budgets of camps, hospitals, schools, and many other great non-profits serving kids.

Paul’s Pals is the bridge. We raise funds, then screen and partner with trusted organizations to make their best adaptive projects happen. We consult with grant recipients and monitor results. Collaborating, we help thousands of kids and families across Minnesota live fuller lives and enrich their communities. Discover how you can request a grant and partner with Paul’s Pals today.

Started as the Paul Adelman Children with Disabilities Endowment Fund in 1996 and now reorganized as Paul’s Pals, we have distributed $1.4 million, funding 106 projects with 36 unique organizations! Read more about our history and leadership.
