The Disability Foundation, Inc.

In 1999, The Dayton Foundation helped to establish The Disability Foundation. This supporting organization offers a planning option that provides supplemental services for individuals with disabilities.

Inheriting or receiving even minor amounts of money or property may jeopardize an individual with disabilities support from Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The Disability Foundation administers The Ohio Community Pooled Trust, a safe and affordable planning option for people faced with this issue. Through the Trust, individuals with disabilities and their families can establish an account that will provide a lifetime plan of payments to support the individuals’ supplemental needs without risking Medicaid and SSI benefits.

The Disability Foundation was initiated through the efforts of The Dayton Foundation, working with the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation, the Gorman-Hewitt-Ayars Memorial Fund of United Cerebral Palsy, Greater Dayton Mental Health Foundation and the Greene Foundation.
