2022 Big Day of Giving

Create Employment for People with Disabilities
in the Sacramento Region

Make a Big Difference in Your Community

A job means so much more than a paycheck; it also has the power to bring connection, community, and purpose. Today, thousands of people with disabilities in the Sacramento region are unemployed. Your donations make it possible for people of all abilities to experience the dignity of a paycheck and the pride that comes with meaningful work.

This Big Day of Giving—led by the Sacramento Regional Community Foundation—is a driving force in helping our community. Last year, your support helped over 840 local people with disabilities gain access to the workforce. Let’s continue this movement to increase workplace inclusion and opportunity!

100% of Your Donation Funds Employment Programs

We work with individuals throughout their employment journey to provide career access, choice, and advancement opportunities. When you donate to our Foundation, you support a broad range of personalized services for people with disabilities. And because PRIDE Industries funds all of our Foundation’s administrative costs, 100% of your donation goes directly to support these life-changing programs. 

Vocational Training

Your donations fund essential training and job certifications—giving people with disabilities and barriers to employment an opportunity to succeed in a competitive job market.

Job Coaching

Our Job Coaches provide a safe, well-supervised training environment using a person-centered approach that ensures lasting success for both employer and employee.

Paid Internships

Internships give people with disabilities and other barriers to employment the opportunity to learn new skills and demonstrate their abilities to potential employers.

Assistive Technology

We furnish critical aids—such as software, hearing aids, and motorized scooters—that enable people with disabilities to succeed in the workplace.

Transportation

Our fleet of buses transports people who are unable to drive to work or medical appointments, and enable us to deliver essentials such as groceries and medicine.

I AM ABLE Helpline

Our I AM ABLE Helpline connects people who face barriers to employment, as well as their family members, to essential career and support services.
