Institute on Community Integration Fund
Support innovative, interdisciplinary research and training within ICI’s four focus areas: Early Intervention, Educational Policy and Practice, Community Living and Employment, and Global Disability Rights and Inclusion.
Your support is needed to help us engage community organizations early in the research and dissemination process to ensure we are responsive to their needs. This seed funding will help us leverage our strong national reputation to attract larger federal grants in areas such as telehealth, healthcare coordination, voting rights, self-advocacy in outstate Minnesota, increasing access to competitive employment for people with disabilities, and stabilizing the direct support workforce.
Provide scholarships to students from underserved communities, including students with disabilities.
A priority for ICI is to inspire, educate, and support innovative leaders to create inclusive, welcoming, diverse communities for ALL people with disabilities. Your support will provide scholarships to students from underserved communities. Our focus is on developing leadership through ICI’s interdisciplinary programs, including a graduate certificate in disability policy and services and the Leadership in Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) program, with emphasis on first-generation graduate students, students with disabilities, and students from racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse communities.
The Stephanie Evelo Fund for Art Inclusion
Art for All
Create opportunities for Minnesota artists with disabilities.
Art for All: The Stephanie Evelo Program for Art Inclusion, a project of ICI, recognizes, celebrates, and promotes the work of Minnesota artists with disabilities. Through curated exhibitions at the University of Minnesota and selected locations in the Twin Cities, Art for All provides artists the opportunity to display, discuss, and sell their work. The fund was established by Sheryl and David Evelo in partnership with ICI to remember their daughter Stephanie (1969–2012), a gifted artist and dedicated ICI employee and colleague.
Gifts of all amounts have an impact, and you can make a difference with your support.
