Support PACER and its Projects
PACER Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on individual, corporate, and foundation contributions and support. PACER is fiscally responsible: Only 16 percent of funds are used for management and fundraising, so 84 percent of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to programs and services that assist all children including those with any disability and their families.
By making a donation, you are helping PACER provide opportunities for children and youth with disabilities. Your contribution will help keep services free of charge to families.
PACER welcomes contributions in a variety of ways, and any amount is appreciated.
