Inclusive Philanthropy

Organizations are at their best when they welcome, respect and include people of all backgrounds – and this includes people with disabilities. Fully 1-in-5 people have a learning, mental health, physical, sensory or other disability. People can be born with a disability, or acquire one due to an accident, aging, gun violence or in military service to our nation. People with disabilities want to be included in philanthropy, nonprofits and in solving problems in our communities, just like anyone else.

RespectAbility is philanthropy’s partner to enable funders to have the maximum impact they desire, whether that is in education, training, employment, criminal justice, health, the arts access or other key issues. We encourage you to learn more by reading the resources below. Whenever you need free help and/or partners, reach out to us. We are here for you! Email our Senior Director of Inclusive Philanthropy and Development Franklin Anderson at [email protected] today!
