Why Your Financial Gift to AHEDD is So Important
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 a donation today or by making plans 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 450 individuals with a disability. These individuals have made the conscious decision to overcome the many 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 often surpasses 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 generous 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. Check out our latest Annual Report for more details about our impact.
