Galt Foundation provides, promotes, and expands employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
It's not easy doing what we do every day, and we choose our work for one reason: We care. We care deeply about every person having a chance to enjoy a full and productive life, free from stigma and prejudice. We care deeply about a world that is equitable, accepting, and full of opportunities. We are working for change every day – because we care.
We Are Change Agents
Galt Foundation is creating a new kind of workplace – the workplace of the future – where employers have more access to skilled and motivated workers, and people of all capabilities can find meaningful, sustaining work. Quietly, radically, we are transforming the world.
We are Mission Driven
Our cause is equity – our business model is completely sustaining. One hundred percent of our revenues are earned through the delivery of services and zero percent through donations – which means we succeed only when our clients are successful. It's an efficient, values-based model that benefits our organization, our employees, and our clients.
Galt Foundation was founded in 1998 by Peter and Leslie Meingast. After building a successful for profit staffing company, Peter and Leslie decided to focus specifically on creating employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. They began Galt Foundation in Salem, Oregon with a mission to provide, promote, and expand employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. This mission remains at the heart of our operations today.
We’ve worked relentlessly to employ people with disabilities. We do it because we see potential where others might see limitations. Instead of “people who can’t do the job,” we see people who haven’t yet been matched to the right positions.
Since opening our doors, we have expanded our work throughout Oregon as well as opened offices in Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. In each of these states, both the individuals and the organizations that work with Galt are truly remarkable. We’re encouraged by the increasing need and interest of the public and private sectors to employ individuals with disabilities. We are proud to have employed more than 25,000 people, making us one of the largest staffing organizations of individuals with disabilities in the world.
Galt Foundation has and will continue to create a better workplace – one in which employers have access to skilled and motivated workers, and people of all abilities can find meaningful, sustaining work.
Let’s start a conversation! Are you a person with disabilities searching for a job or an organization with temporary or long-term employment needs? We look forward to helping you realize your potential.
