Creating employment for people with disabilities
One in five Americans has a disability, and two-thirds of working-age Americans with disabilities are unemployed. At PRIDE Industries, we know that a job means so much more than a paycheck; it also has the power to bring connection, community, and purpose.
With your support, we can expand employment opportunities for a significant number of Americans. When you donate to The Michael Ziegler PRIDE Industries Foundation, you directly help people with disabilities experience the dignity of a paycheck and the pride that comes with meaningful work. And it’s not just individuals who are helped. When more people are able to work, the entire community benefits socially and economically.
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.
The Michael Ziegler PRIDE Industries Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donations are therefore eligible for a tax deduction. Our tax ID number is 94-160529.
