If you don’t meet these criteria, please don’t click away just yet! We have a full suite of publicly available resources on disability inclusion and we invite you to subscribe to our public newsletter for updates.

Please note that the Disability & Philanthropy Forum is a membership association of funders. As such, we do not make grants to nonprofit organizations or individuals, and we are unable to provide fundraising assistance. We recommend those seeking grants visit Candid or FoundationSearch.
