Become a Disability Rights Defender! Give to NCIL Monthly

Dear NCIL Supporter,

Your support of NCIL means everything to us. Whether you’re a NCIL member, you’ve attended one of our trainings or conferences, you’ve donated to us – or all of the above! – you are a part of making our crucial work happen on Capitol Hill and beyond. Now there’s a new way to support NCIL, by giving monthly.

Your monthly gift, given automatically through your credit or debit card will allow us to have the funds to advocate every day for Independent Living, on and off the Hill, twelve months a year.

And it provides you with an opportunity to support NCIL in a way that is as easy as continuing your Netflix subscription!

Once you join the Disability Rights Defenders

  • You’ll receive a thank you letter by email and mail
  • You’ll help advocate for the IL program and disability rights throughout the year, not just when urgent policy issues come up

To become a Disability Rights Defender, go to, make your first donation, and click “create recurring transaction” on the payment page. From there, you can select how frequently you want to make the donation, and on which day of the week.

You can change your monthly donation amount anytime. Simply call Cara Liebowitz at 202-207-0334 ext. 1102 or send an email to [email protected].

Thank you for joining the Disability Rights Defenders!
