National Disability Institute Launches #GivingTuesday Campaign and Reaffirms Commitment to Building a Better Financial Future for Americans with Disabilities

As the nation’s first nonprofit dedicated exclusively to improving the financial health and well-being of people across the spectrum of disability, National Disability Institute (NDI) has long documented the unique financial challenges and hurdles individuals with disabilities face.

Why our work is important:

  • One in four Americans with disabilities live in poverty.
  • Among adults ages 18-64, one in nine have a disability and, of those, one in three are employed.
  • People with disabilities are twice as likely to have income less than $35,000, leading to a high rate of skipped medical treatments compared to those without disabilities.

Through innovative projects that focus on employment, public benefits planning, tax preparation and policy, NDI is a catalyst for change. 

#GivingTuesday is about harnessing the power of collaboration to effect change. This year, we are launching our inaugural #GivingTuesday campaign, with a goal of raising money to put towards creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities to achieve financial well-being. 

Be a catalyst, too. Those who are interested in joining our #GivingTuesday initiative can visit https://paypal.me/donateNDI.
