Since 1978 we have worked to create a barrier-free, inclusive California that values all people and supports their rights to dignity, freedom, independence and quality of life. Our advocacy makes a difference in the lives of Californians with disabilities: every year we investigate reports of abuse, work with legislators to find ways to eliminate discrimination and help thousands to access education, to leave institutions to live in the community, and obtain services to support independence. All of our services are provided free of charge. You may learn more about our work by reading our Annual Report.
As a result of the state’s fiscal crisis, services to Californians with disabilities have been dramatically reduced. As a result, we face increased demand for our assistance and need your help. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on your tax deductible donations to help us create an inclusive society. You can be assured that your dollars will be well spent as 85% of expenses support advocacy programs.
Your donation will help DRC protect equality, dignity, freedom, and independence for our fellow Californians with disabilities. You may, of course, contribute any amount, and every dollar helps.
We encourage you to contribute at one of the levels below.
- Supporter $250
- Sponsor $500
- Advocate $1,000
- Champion $5,000
- Benefactor $10,000
- Patron $25,000

All donors at Supporter level and above will be acknowledged on our website and in our Annual Report. We will contact Champions, Benefactors, and Patrons to discuss a place of acknowledgement at the new DRC headquarters in Sacramento.
