It’s Official – EPIC Disability Advocacy is a 501c3 Nonprofit!
Chandler, AZ — The co-founders of EPIC Disability Advocacy are pleased to announce that the organization is now recognized as a 501c3 nonprofit organization and can accept tax deductible donations!
Founded in 2021, EPIC Disability Advocacy’s mission is to educate, advocate, and create connections to empower the disability community. The co-founders are thrilled to have reached this step in their journey of building an organization dedicated to ensuring all persons with disabilities will have access to the resources, programs, and services needed to reach their full potential.
“We are a group of women who came together with a shared passion for ensuring all people with disabilities have the opportunity to achieve their full potential,” said Amanda Steele, co-founder and board president. “Our conversations started over the need for increased special education funding for K-12 public school students. From these discussions evolved a shared vision to empower potential and ignite change for people with disabilities. Our aim is to identify and overcome the societal challenges that prevent people with disabilities from achieving their full potential.”
EPIC’s founding members bring a wide range of experience in many fields including medical, therapeutic, non-profit, and corporate settings. Each has personal experience as individuals with and/or mothers to individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD).

“We are excited to partner with government, nonprofit and corporate stakeholders to open doors so that people with disabilities have opportunities to live their best life,” said Steele. “Please reach out to us if you are interested in learning more about EPIC and to partner with us.”
