Why Your Financial Gift to AHEDD is So
One of the best and most
convenient ways to help individuals with disabilities to gain greater social
and economic self-sufficiency is through your thoughtful contributions.
Philanthropy is not just for the wealthy. You can show that you care about
others by making plans today to leave a time-honored gift to support the
employment services offered by AHEDD.
Each year, AHEDD provides
competitive employment training and follow up support services to over 400
individuals with a disability. These are individuals who have made the
conscious decision to overcome the myriad of barriers that often make the
difference between someone who is chronically unemployed or someone who is
gainfully employed and an active contributing member of their community. The
need for services far outstrips the available funds that AHEDD receives in
service fees, contracts and grants. Oftentimes, AHEDD is required to provide
a financial match in order to draw down federal funds available through
grants awarded to the organization. Your gift will enable AHEDD to expand its
ability to serve more individuals who need assistance in reaching their goal
of a competitive job in the community.
Your gift to AHEDD is
tax-deductible in keeping with the IRS Codes for contributions to recognized
501(c)(3) public charities.
