Background

The Disability Rights Fund’s unique participatory model of grantmaking incorporates people with disabilities in decision-making, establishing the fund as an innovative grantmaking vehicle operating in concert with the disability community’s slogan, nothing about us without us. Additional resources on participatory grantmaking and the power of inclusion can be found here.

According to the report by the Foundation Center and the International Human Rights Funders’ Group, the Disability Rights Fund is one of the top 15 human rights grantmakers by number of human rights grants, and at the top in terms of number of grants addressing disability rights.
