Disability Inclusion Fund Landscape Analysis
About the Landscape Analysis
The Disability Inclusion Fund, housed at Borealis Philanthropy, hired Sandy Ho, a Research Associate at The Lurie Institute for Disability Policy, as a consultant to conduct a landscape analysis to guide grantmaking criteria and objectives.
Adhering to foundational disability inclusion practices and the disability justice principle ‘leadership of those most impacted’ requires that every point of funding operations, dissemination, learning, and development etc. must be informed by and in concert with people with disabilities, with intentional emphasis of involvement from disabled people of color who also hold intersecting marginalized identities. This understanding guided the approach of conducting this landscape analysis. These findings and recommendations stem from the shared insights, knowledge, aspirations, and challenges experienced from twelve key-informant interviews conducted over the period of March – May 2020 from across the U.S. with representation from California, Nebraska, Illinois, Michigan, South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas.
