In Memory of Jim Thatcher
(March 25, 1936 – December 7, 2019)

We are deeply saddened by the too early departure from the world of our friend Jim Thatcher. His family has established this fund to provide an annual scholarship to the AccessU training conference that Jim helped found and to create an annual award for contributions in the field of accessibility.

Knowbility is a mission-driven organization. Your gift serves our mission, enabling progress in our work for equal technology access for all. Community programs—AccessWorks, K12 Access Toolkit, AIR, Fix the Web—rely on community support to continue to thrive and grow. Programs that directly serve educational, employment, and skills development for people with disabilities are only possible with donations from people like you. Here is how we put your donations to work:

Your gift of $50 enrolls a college student in the AIR challenge, teaching them accessible design skills as they learn to code.

A $100 donation funds the participation of a user with disability in a product usability study, providing income and valuable user experience data.

$250 donation provides mentoring and support to a non-profit organization learning about digital accessibility as a recipient of an AIR website.

A $1,000 donation supports the use of the K12 Access Toolkit in 100 classrooms, helping teachers learn to use technology to integrate students with disabilities in general education.

For donations of $10,000 and more, you can become a sponsor and underwrite program outreach and production expenses. Please contact us directly for details and benefits of sponsorship.

Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated. As people with disabilities have equal access to technology, society is enriched by their greater independence and productivity. Won’t you help us make that promise a reality? Thank you!
