Communities care about accessibility.

  • Peter F. Drucker Foundation Recognition for Nonprofit Innovation - Since 1990, when Peter Drucker, "the father of modern management," established the Drucker Foundation, they have supported excellence in nonprofit management. Each year, the Drucker foundation recognizes nonprofit programs that address society's problems in innovative and effective ways. Knowbility was greatly honored when our Accessibility Internet Rally was one of three programs selected for recognition by the Drucker Foundation in October of 2000.
