overall support network. Corporate financial contributions for specific
programs or for general support help ensure that our services to children and
adults with developmental disabilities have the resources that they need. In

contribution gift matching programs.
In-kind donations of specific equipment, real estate, goods, and services

our work. Often these gifts fill critical needs and provide resources and
opportunities that otherwise would not be available.
