Change Lives. Join the Kessler Society.

Banner for Donation Page

Every donor is an essential partner in our mission to change the lives of people with disabilities—helping people take first steps; improve the ability to think, learn, and remember; and overcome obstacles to employment.  

 

Leadership gifts from Kessler Society members provide Kessler Foundation with a base of financial support that provides our scientists and grant makers with critical resources. These funds propel new research discoveries and fund innovative employment initiatives that help people with disabilities re-imagine what’s possible and realize the extraordinary. Year after year, these generous friends demonstrate a belief in our mission and a commitment to solidifying our role as a global leader in rehabilitation research and disability employment.

 

Membership in the Kessler Society is extended to friends who make annual gifts to Kessler Foundation totaling $500 or more. Ultimately, membership will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your support is changing the lives of people with disabilities — helping people take their first steps, improve their memory, communicate, and overcome obstacles to employment.
