Please Support Our Mission

Government funds are not sufficient to cover the full costs of providing CFI's programs and operations. To cover the difference between grant funding and the costs of providing our services, we need the support of individuals, organizations, and businesses in our community.

If you are able to support our mission to promote the independence of individuals with disabilities by making a gift, please complete the form below. We are a 501(c)3 organization. Our tax ID # is 91-1577469.
