Who Supports Us & Why You Should
The reduction of the number of persons without identification benefits the community by making economic, health, and housing opportunities available to the marginalized. It is a financially sound and effective method to address a fundamental issues of poverty: the lack of provable identity.
We appreciate any support you can provide through your service, your resources, and your prayers. On average, it costs IDignity approximately $400 and six hours of volunteer time to obtain all identification necessary for one client to become self-sufficient, equating to a total cost of about $100,000 per month.
We have been honored to receive awards from the Points of Light Foundation, The Walt Disney Company Foundation, Bank of America’s Charitable Foundation, the Central Florida Women’s League, the Universal Orlando Foundation, Love Orlando, and Heart of the City. IDignity’s founding attorney, Jackie Dowd, received the 2014 Jane Shaeffer Outstanding Homeless Advocate Award from The Florida Bar’s Public Interest Law Section as well as the 2019 Jane Elizabeth Curran Distinguished Service Award, and our Executive Director, Michael Dippy, received the 2010 Central Floridian of the Year and the 2012 Richard Cornuelle Award for Social Entrepreneurship.
Stewardship and transparency are important to us. You can view our profile within the Central Florida Foundation Nonprofit Search, a subset of GuideStar. Join us in our endeavor to restore dignity and hope by providing identification.
