Fundraising Events

To pursue projects that go “above and beyond” the minimum requirements, we depend on fundraising dollars.

Fundraising has allowed us to build new projects at our special needs school such as vision and sensory rooms, student medical centers, computer and media rooms, and a preschool playground. At our group homes and day programs, they’ve helped fund green space improvements, renovations, and volunteer programs like the Group Home Cooking Show and Brush with Greatness art program. All funds raised through these events go to the particular program’s Annual Fund and supports items that directly impact the people we serve.
