Funding

CAREERS clients James Martinelli and Tom Adimari thank Natalie Sokol from Pepsi enAble for sponsoring our Annual Anniversary event for the past 14 years.

CAREERS is a 501(C)3 private not-for-profit agency that receives funding from several sources enabling us to provide free services to clients and employers.

On average, about 88% of our operating funds come from state and federal sources, including Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR), the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the NY State Office of Mental Health (OMH). In addition, 12% of our funding comes from donations from individuals and grants from foundations, corporations or organizations.

There is no “pork” in CAREERS’ budget. The majority of donations are spent on providing direct service to clients. On average, about 84% of our expenses provide direct services to clients, while only 13% fund general and administrative expenses and 3% goes to fundraising.
