The Disability Rights Fund (DRF) is a grantmaking collaborative between donors and the global disability rights community that empowers persons with disabilities to advocate for equal rights and full participation in society.
As a pooled fund, the Disability Rights Fund:
-Combines the resources of multiple governmental, private, and public donors
-Enables donors to harmonize their efforts towards disability-inclusive funding
-Reaches grassroots, marginalized, and high risk organizations that larger donors cannot reach
-Facilitates feedback about donor investments in this neglected area of human rights and development
-Demonstrates results of disability-inclusive development
To support persons with disabilities around the world to build diverse movements, ensure inclusive development agendas, and achieve equal rights and opportunity for all.
The Disability Rights Fund was established in 2012 to support persons with disabilities to be active participants in decision-making in society and with government. The Disability Rights Fund (DRF) is a 501(c)(3) organization and a separate legal entity from its sister fund, the Disability Rights Advocacy Fund (DRAF), a 501(c)(4) organization. Since 2008, DRF and DRAF have made $23 million in grants in over 30 countries to over 300 disabled persons organizations.
