Access to grants
Capitalising on the knowledge and diverse experience of the Endeavour Fund (which transferred from the Royal Foundation to the Invictus Games Foundation in 2020) and supported by our participating nations, we identify and support WIS teams planning to engage in feats of sporting and adventurous challenge.
We offer advice, networks and grant funding to maximise the success of these endeavours. We also work to establish grassroots initiatives in countries where the concept of sports recovery is developing, or where resources do not exist to support it.
On my own personal level, this journey has meant a lot. I have travelled far outside my comfort zone and challenged what I thought I was capable of, physically and mentally. I’m 100% sure that the expedition was good for me. It’s something I can use for a long time.”
Michael Magill, Denmark Participant in the High Atlas expedition to Morocco, 2022
I feel like I am still a soldier. I feel very happy that I am still moving. I believe Invictus will assist me much better in my life to move further, so I won't feel as bad about my injuries sustained as a soldier.

The Foundation does more than just sports, it gives support to our groups through the grants that we receive - so we can actually help more people. What Invictus has given us is the power to help across the board.
