WORK Inc. Charitable Giving Initiative 


WORK INC.’s mission is advancing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities and providing supports to help individuals realize this dream.  To build upon our success we realize the importance of advancing ideas, supporting organizations and charitable programs outside of our primary mission.  We focus on broadening, supporting, and advancing innovative Social Service needs and programs not serviced by, but complimentary to, our primary focus.

WORK INC. awards grants to 501 C ( 3 ) organizations whose mission it is to advance social service and humanitarian projects centered around the principle of improving the lives of individuals.  Our particular interests are projects and programs which advance principles that support this theme as well as other innovative programs which address broader societal problems such as: wounded service veterans and supports for their families, barrier and access issues particularly for people with disabilities, programs that are focused on correcting a wrong, projects that improve lives of the individuals with disabilities, and community based charitable giving that address a very specific family and individual requirement.
