Global Giving 2019 Recognitions: “Effective,” “Vetted,” “Superstar: Top-Ranked 501(c)(3) Non-Profit”

Ways to Give

Thank you for coming to this page to find out how you can sustain the work of this community and the e-NABLE Movement!


The ENABLE Alliance has been designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, tax exempt. Your donations are tax deductible.

eNABLE volunteers usually are self funded. Your can be the difference between people getting devices and access to technology or perpetuating need.  Its that simple.

Your return on your investment is huge: touching the lives of people who need the devices, their families, and us, the community that collaborates with need-knowers and device users to make the next device better than the one that came before.

The e-NABLE community engages in distance learning, makes multimedia materials, advances community research and development, makes open source devices and gives them away for free. Maria Esquela, Ivan Owen and others created the Enable Alliance to sustain and grow the resources for the whole community, including the website at the heart of our community: www.enablingthefuture. org.  We also would like to serve as a fiscal sponsor if possible, and pass through the entire contribution received to the donors’ intended project.

Together we can help more people faster, share the knowledge and feedback that grows our skills, and nurture professional and emerging scientists in our community.

Network for Good: Support Device Recipients and Candidates at Camp eNABLE, or Make Your Own Campaign

Click here to review e-NABLE Network for Good project sites for news, blog postings, and give your support.

Celebrate the e-NABLE community and movement and consider targeted giving on e-NABLE’s own crowdfunding platform.  e-NABLE Alliance is committed to holding more recipient oriented events in 2020 as part of its Camp e-NABLE programming. We have partnered with Different Heroes, which also tracks device recipient feedback and outcomes while preserving the privacy of device users and their families.

Designating support for Camp e-NABLE directly helps device candidates and recipients who make their own assistive device, and people who need access to technology and mentors to make a device to give someone who needs it – all in the context of collaborating together with advisors and trained staff, and enjoying camp fun. It also helps the families of children with limb differences to enjoy fun activities that are also functional tests and ways to develop workforce skills in service projects.

We Network for Good to launch our own giving campaigns and help members of the community find their voice.
