Is there money for disability programs?
Though we do not have data for global funding for disability programs, the data from the United States is instructive and may provide some guidance. From 2003 till the present day, US Foundations provided over 57,000 grants to recipients based in the US, of which a small proportion (nearly 1,000) went to NGOs outside of the US.
