INVEST MONTHLY FOR INCLUSION
Help us make sure that when social distancing is done, it’s really done...for you AND children with disabilities.
By investing monthly, you're joining a dedicated community of GEMs (Give Every Month) providing consistent, reliable resources to sustain the National Inclusion Project’s mission of empowering communities and recreation programs to include children with disabilities in ALL of their activities.
It's simple and easy to join! Just choose the amount of your monthly gift (large or small, it all adds up!) and your subsequent giving will happen automatically.
YOUR MONTHLY GIFT DRIVES INITIATIVES LIKE
We meet a program where they are on the pathway to inclusion and train their staff on best practices in half day, full day and multi day on-site trainings.
We offer online educational tools for programs like Making Connections and Family Interactions so that they can take immediate action and do just-in-time training for front line staff.
We provide an operational definition of social inclusion and clearly outline best practices of inclusive recreation.
We walk programs through an accreditation process that serves to recognize and confirm that a program is intentionally and successfully serving individuals with and without disabilities TOGETHER!
We connect programs with like-minded organizations in their local area and across the country for the everyday support on their path to inclusion.
WHY Giving every month MATTERS
It Allows You to Budget
Large or small, whatever your monthly gift, it accumulates to equip more programs across the country with the tools they need to include children with disabilities in their activities.
It Plans for the Future
Your recurring donation enables us to invest in specific areas of our work as well as strategically expand and innovate because we know we have the support of our NIP GEMs.
It Brings You Behind the Scenes
Your commitment brings you closer to our work through exclusive updates on our progress and your impact.
It Makes a Difference
The world we live in right now can be hard. It can be scary and overwhelming...especially for children with disabilities.

For you AND for children with disabilities.
