Donations to The Coelho Center

The Coelho Center for Disability Law, Policy and Innovation (The Coelho Center) is dedicated to convening and fostering new thought leaders in disability law and policy; creating innovative advances in technology, media and entertainment to combat stigma; and increasing the pipeline of talented students with disabilities into law school and onto the bar and bench.  The Coelho Center is an interdisciplinary center that brings together all the schools and colleges of Loyola Marymount University and is housed at Loyola Law School.  Your support makes it possible for us to expand our reach to positively affect the lives of people with disabilities in Los Angeles, across the country, and internationally.  We are a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization.  All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  Donations to our center build on the legacy of the work of the Hon. Tony Coelho and the promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to work toward “the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.”  42 U.S.C. 12101(b)(1). 

We recognize our donors by publishing their names on our website and other materials.  If you wish to remain anonymous, please indicate so online in the additional gift instructions or in writing.  All donors will receive proper documentation for tax purposes.
