Kessler Foundation has issued five Impact Reports highlighting successful outcomes of major grants supported under its Signature Employment Grant(SEG) program. Since 2004, Kessler Foundation has provided more than $41.5 million to support initiatives that create or expand opportunities for people with disabilities.
In 2009, Kessler Foundation began partnering with the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University to conduct independent program evaluations of its SEG projects. Independent examination of projects enables better judgment of program success, provides accountability, and is critical to smarter investing for future projects. Each Impact Report summarizes the key findings of the Heldrich Center’s individual program evaluations.
