    Herb Levine Legacy Fund for Disability Activism in California

    It is with great pleasure that the Independent Living Resource Center San Francisco (ILRCSF) announces the establishment of an annual fund designed to foster grassroots disability rights activism in California. Our esteemed Executive Director, Herb Levine, is retiring after more than 30 years of visionary leadership in the Independent Living Movement and we want to honor his legacy of service by making a sustained commitment to fostering grassroots projects that are in line with our mission of working to ensure that people with disabilities are full social and economic partners, both within their families and in a fully accessible community.

    Guidelines:

    • To be eligible you must submit a 1-2 page letter describing your proposed project, a short statement about your involvement in the IL Movement, and a detailed budget of up to $1,500.

    • Individuals with connections to Independent living Centers throughout California are strongly encouraged to apply, though applicants with no affiliation to an ILC will still be considered.

    • All applications must be received, annually, by July 9th, Herb's birthday. Winners will be announced, annually, on the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, July 26th.

    The establishment of the fund was made possible by a generous donation, and will need to be sustained by donations made to the Herb Levine Legacy Fund. We hope you'll make it a part of your annual gift budget to contribute to this exciting fund. Please spread this announcement far and wide by sharing it with your networks.

    Both applications and donations may be mailed to: ILRCSF / RE: The Herb Levine Legacy Fund / 649 Mission St, FL 3 / San Francisco, CA 94105
