The Time for Digital Accessibility is NOW

Aug. 18, 2022 @ 11am EST

More than 500 lawsuits were filed in 2021 against companies whose digital accessibility wasn’t in compliance with the law—and nonprofits are not exempt from these lawsuits. Folks with disabilities have $3B in disposable income, and they are inadvertently being turning away by companies not in compliance. It’s time for all organizations to adopt a policy of full digital accessibility. Disability justice is often the last frontier and most often forgotten aspect of DEI work. Let’s change that and create digital spaces that are welcoming to all.

Expand Your Fundraising Potential with Digital Accessibility

Sept. 12, 2022 @ 2:05pm CST

Did you know that over 26% of adults in the US live with a disability? That is 61 million Americans. How does that impact our work? If you want to reach ALL your prospective supporters, advocates, and donors, you need to make sure you are including everyone who is interested in furthering your mission. Because you cannot afford to create barriers to participation – even if unintentional.

Ensuring that your work is fully accessible and inclusive across your digital channels is a must. Right from the first interaction with your organization, every person should be able to learn, interact, sign up, and donate with ease. Come to this session to learn more about the fundamentals of digital accessibility and why and how your organization can do what it takes to ensure you are creating an opportunity for EVERYONE to give.

Why come to this session? Every organization needs to understand the importance of why and how to incorporate the fundamentals of accessibility and inclusivity into their digital fundraising efforts. It is not enough to just put in some alt-text on images or include some high contrast images on your site. Digital accessibility is more nuanced, and when someone with a disability shows up at any of your digital properties, it is important that they feel welcomed and included. Yes, you are leaving money on the table if you don’t do it well, but, more importantly, you should make your digital ecosystem fully inclusive and accessible because it is the RIGHT thing to do. From your website, to your forms, to your email and beyond, we will talk about the ways to increase access for all.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the key components of digital accessibility.
  • Why it is important for all organizations to take digital accessibility seriously.
  • Learn what organizations can do across websites, email marketing, and social media platforms to reach broader audiences.
