From donors who have been with us since the beginning, to brand new donors, we are grateful—and proud!—to have so many individuals ensuring that we can act where the need is greatest, and in support of people who are so often excluded. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Here are the stories of some of our donors who make this work possible.
A decade of difference
Loyal donors Phyllis Taylor and her husband, Dick, have supported Humanity & Inclusion since 2007! They’ve seen Humanity & Inclusion expand programs to 60+ countries and have helped our teams help more than 2 million individuals with care in 2018. Learn more about Phyllis and why she's so passionate about helping vulnerable populations.
Upholding a promise
In the summer of 2017, we welcomed Anna Custis, a bright, eager U.S. International Council on Disabilities (USICD) fellow. She also happens to be a woman who is hard of hearing. While in college, Anna made a promise to herself that once she got a job, she would become a monthly donor. Learn more about Anna, 24, and what motivates her to give to Humanity & Inclusion on a regular basis.
A sustainable effort
In April 2015, when a devastating earthquake struck Nepal, Gina Febbraro and Ajay Kapoor decided to act. After doing a lot of research, and reading Humanity & the stories of our beneficiaries, like Nirmala, they decided to support Humanity & Inclusion. Learn more about this couple's journey and why they continue to support Humanity & Inclusion to this very day.
