DAC Education and Resource Fund

The Disability Action Center established the DAC Education and Resource Fund through Your Community Foundation (YCF) in 2015. Establishment of this fund will provide grants and funding for education, scholarships and resources for individuals with disabilities for years to come.

The Disability Action Center Education and Resource Fund Endowment will focus on three areas of giving and support:

  • The Assist Award Scholarship given yearly to special needs graduates in Marion County Schools;
  • Educational needs of individuals with disabilities and their families; and
  • Resources for individuals with disabilities and their families to include home modifications, assistive technology, personal development, trainings and support services.

How Can I Donate?
All donations to the DAC Education Resource Fund are invested to increase their value, with net income
from these investments paid out annually to meet the requirements and donor objectives of the fund. While the
net income is dispersed, the original endowments and any subsequent contributions remain intact and continue
to grow from year to year.

Individuals, organizations and businesses are encouraged to contribute any amount of money to one or
more of the endowments managed by YCF. Additional donations will help the endowments to grow over the
years and will increase the net income used to provide yearly grants.
