Grant Funders (pdf) document lists foundation and corporate funders who are or may be interested in supporting persons with disabilities. The table is designed so that if you see a potential funding match for your CIL, you will have all the information necessary to apply including deadlines, contact names, funding priorities, and even a list of previous grant awards. That may be all that you need. Or you may wish to request from FACIL full grant writing services. This service is available exclusively to FACIL members.

The size of this population - 54 million strong - surpasses Hispanics, African Americans and Asian Americans, as well as Generation X and teens. Add in their families, friends and associates, and you get a trillion dollars in purchasing power.
