Thank you for supporting the work of Disability Rights Texas. We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donations are tax-deductible. There are several ways you can give to help people with disabilities in Texas:
1. Give through our secure website page. You can make a one-time gift or set up a monthly recurring gift.
2. You can also give to us through our Facebook page (look for the blue Donate button at the top of our page). Because we are a registered nonprofit with the Facebook Giving Fund, no fees are taken out of your donation.
3. Set up a Facebook fundraiser to benefit Disability Rights Texas. Go to the DRTx Facebook fundraiser page and then click on “Raise Money.” Again, no fees are taken out of donations to your fundraiser.
4. If you wish to mail your donation instead of giving online, please make your check payable to Disability Rights Texas and send to us at: 2222 West Braker Lane, Austin, Texas 78758. Please write “donation” in the memo line.
5. Donate via Amazon Smile. If you shop online with Amazon, you can set up your account to automatically donate a small percentage of your order to Disability Rights Texas and it doesnt cost you anything additional! Click here for details on how to get your account connected.
6. If you are unable to give to us financially, learn more about other ways you can support our work.
When you give to Disability Rights Texas, you help thousands of children, women and men with disabilities in Texas each year to exercise their legal rights so they can fully and equally participate in society. Here are just a few examples of some of the people you help with your donation:
- A wounded war hero who is angrily and illegally kicked out of a store because of his service dog receives justice and goes on to help other vets with the passage of a new state law.
- A simple technical device helps to transform a struggling young girl who is hard of hearing into a successful and confident student.
- A young man’s breathing device that he has been using for years is unexpectedly denied by Medicaid, but the denial is challenged and coverage is re-instated.
- A woman with a physical disability obtains the job training she needs to enter the profession she has chosen to support herself.
- A young woman who resided in a state supported living center for years finally moves out to live happily and successfully in the community.
With your help, we can change the lives of thousands of people in Texas who face discrimination because of their disabilities.
