Become an INclusivist - join IN!'s monthly giving club!
INclusivists support the belief that people with intellectual disabilities should have the opportunity to go to college!
By becoming an INclusivist, YOU are making the future of our state brighter! Collectively, INclusivists make sure students with intellectual disabilities (IDD) can go to college in our state. Four years ago, college was not an option for students with IDD in Colorado. Today 72 students are enrolled at Arapahoe Community College, University of Northern Colorado, and University of Colorado Colorado Springs. Your investment will ensure this number continues to grow for the next decades to come.
