About the Pledge

The last few years have challenged philanthropy and the communities we serve in unprecedented ways, and now more than ever, leadership in the fight for equity, inclusion and social justice matters. The COVID-19 pandemic, economic recession, and racial injustice have shined a light on what we have all known for far too long: people with disabilities have been disproportionately impacted by each crisis, each budget cut, and each rollback of civil rights.

Simply put, social justice requires disability inclusion. To meet the urgency of this moment, the Presidents’ Council on Disability Inclusion in Philanthropy has developed the Disability Inclusion Pledge.

Be Part of the Journey

As foundations and philanthropy-serving organizations, we must engage on a learning journey that centers the perspectives of disabled people, and we must deepen our understanding of disability as a natural part of the human experience. Each foundation who has signed the Disability Inclusion Pledge is committed to embark on a learning journey, starting with preliminary disability inclusion action steps that will take them beyond the minimum legal requirements. Will you join us?

Spread the Word

If your foundation or philanthropy-serving organizations has signed on to the Disability Inclusion Pledge, please help us amplify this call to action for philanthropy. Together, we can influence the philanthropic sector to move toward a future of inclusion and equity for all.

Ready to Learn?

The Disability & Philanthropy Forum invites you to register for the 2021 Disability & Philanthropy Webinar Series, focusing on the connections between disability and key social justice issues. This series is made possible by the Presidents’ Council on Disability Inclusion in Philanthropy.

Moderated by leaders in the philanthropic sector, each webinar will engage diverse advocates from across the disability community in conversation about how we can meaningfully move toward a more equitable society for all.

All webinars are free to attend and CART will be provided.
