Mission Statement

The Paul Schulte Foundation has existed since 2007, with a focus on providing youth with disabilities the opportunity to gain confidence and realize their potential in education and sports by attending wheelchair basketball camps.

The best camps in the country are hosted and organized by university wheelchair basketball teams. Some of these include The University of Illinois, Edinboro University and the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. The Head Coaches of each of these university teams, along with their roster of athletes, serve as staff, counselors, and instructors for youth with disabilities over the course of the camp. (Usually ranging from 3 to 5 days) Youth campers gain the experience of staying on a college campus, meeting incredible role models, and learning to set life goals on and off the court. Camp fees typically range from $350-$500. The Paul Schulte Foundation raises and targets funds toward paying for the camp fees of participants whose families could not otherwise afford the experience. The Foundation places it’s highest priority on first-time campers.

Gaining a Vision

“After my accident, I received great advice from lots of people who cared about me. But it wasn’t until I met an amazing role models using wheelchairs and saw a clear path to where I wanted my life to go, that things really started to change. The advice I had previously been given went from a black-and-white understanding to a full color vision of what was possible. And nothing could hold me back.”
