Presented by the Disability & Philanthropy Forum
U.S. foundations have an urgent opportunity to expand equity and social justice by increasing their focus on disability. Disabled leaders have long been told by grantmakers that they “don’t fund disability.” Unfortunately, the data shows this is true. One in four adult Americans and an estimated 1 billion people globally experience disability, but only one penny of every $10 in U.S. grantmaking goes to disability rights and social justice.
Meanwhile, disabled people regularly encounter ableism that limits their social and economic prospects, well-being, and human rights. Through both data and storytelling, this session will illuminate why philanthropy cannot ignore funding for disability rights and justice.
