GRIT Payment Plan

Start rolling in a GRIT Freedom Chair for $1500 down payment and $125/month for 12 months.

We've partnered with NorthWind Companies to extend a payment plan to GRIT Freedom Chair buyers. There are no financing fees and no interest if your payments are made on schedule. No credit check required.

Thinking of adding accessories, shipping costs, or a GRIT Freedom Chair Forward to your financing? You can! Our financing plan works like this: 50% of the total you'd like to finance is required up-front, and the remainder is broken into 12 equal monthly payments. We do not charge financing fees or interest on the monthly payments if they are paid on schedule.

For example, if you choose a GRIT Freedom Chair 2.0 that normally retails for $2995 and buy during a promotion offering free shipping (normally it's $99), it works out to a $1497.50 down payment and $124.79/month for 12 months.

Veterans Affairs

Veterans can receive GRIT Freedom Chairs through the VA.

Thank you for your service! GRIT has a VA contract (V797D-60697), which means that VA staff can order you a Freedom Chair at no cost to you. Click the link below to enter your information. We'll reach out with ordering information and to help you through the VA provisioning process.

If your VA representative is having a hard time visiting the GRIT website, have them make sure that they are not logged into the secure network, as it prohibits sites like ours from loading.

GRIT Pay it Forward Low Income Fund

A fund to help everyone move beyond the pavement.

 

Here at GRIT, we're committed to helping riders afford the mobility they need to move beyond the pavement. We've created the Pay it Forward Low Income Fund to help riders in difficult financial situations afford a GRIT Freedom Chair.

The fund is endowed by private donations, GRIT's contribution of 10% of each sale of the GRIT Freedom Chair Forward, and proceeds from our customer referral program

Applications for grants from the fund will be reviewed by the GRIT team. Selected beneficiaries will receive a grant to help cover much, but not all, of the cost of a refurbished GRIT Freedom Chair ($2495). These chairs have been lightly used, and have been inspected, refurbished, and certified by the GRIT assembly team. Currently, we're forecasting that we'll be able to subsidize around 5 chairs per year. The fund is new and we're working on strategies to increase the fund so that we can help more people. If you're applying to the fund, we also recommend checking out our other financing options.

If you have any questions about this application, the fund, or other financing options, please call us at 1-877-345-4748. We're happy to work with you to find the best solution for your specific situation.

An offline version of the application can be viewed here. The application must be submitted by filling out the online form. The offline version is only provided so that you can prepare your answers prior to filling them out on the online form.

Applicants must be residents of the United States.

We're proud to announce the first grant from the fund! Here is the press release.


Frequently Asked Questions

 

How much will the grants cover?

The program is need-based. Our application asks how much you're able to contribute to the purchase as well as a variety of lifestyle and financial questions to ensure that you're eligible. We will not cover 100% of the cost of the refurbished chair for any applicant because we believe that it's important for people to have a sense of ownership of their mobility devices. However, the amount that you can contribute towards the purchase will not be the sole determinator of whether or not you'll get the grant to cover the rest. The purpose of this program is to help as many people move beyond the pavement as possible.

 

Can I donate to the fund?

Maybe. We're not a nonprofit, so we're not able to accept tax-deductible donations. We're looking into partnerships with nonprofits that would enable us to accept donations. If tax-deductions aren't important to you, we can take your non-tax-deductible donations immediately. Questions? Contact us.

Donate
 

What about the GRIT Freedom Chair? Does any amount from sales of that product get contributed into the fund?

No. Our primary goal is to keep the retail price of the GRIT Freedom Chair as low as possible. We understand that many of our GRIT Freedom Chair customers don't have extra cash to spare, so we are not using any fraction of those sales for this fund.

 

Which products will the grants cover?

Right now our goal is to help as many people as possible to live their lives beyond the pavement. To that end, the grants will help subsidize the cost of refurbished GRIT Freedom Chair 2.0s. Grants cannot be used to pay for the GRIT Freedom Chair Forward.
