Opengate’s summer appeal was well received and we are thankful for donations which help us provide services uninterrupted. But, summer isn’t over yet, and our appeal for donations continues.
The future of Opengate is always evolving, as well as our programs for the individuals we serve.
As you know, funding is always an issue when growth occurs, and donations from the private sector are the lifeline for non-profits who provide quality services.
We would like to reach beyond our exceptional existing list of committed donors and there are ways you can help.
- Talk about Opengate to other family members or friends in your community and encourage their donation
- Reach out to businesses or corporations for donations of needed goods and services
- Set up a recurring donation schedule (monthly, quarterly)
- Consider legacy giving in your estate planning
- Host a fundraising event in your community
The reality is that government funding cuts and policy changes have affected our budgets. Your contribution allows us to satisfy our responsibilities and carry on towards meeting our goals, as well as the positive personal outcomes for each individual.
Every dollar you give has an impact on our mission to exceed accepted quality standards and the best care for our clients.
Like most non-profits, we have a laundry list of items needed, like tablets for our staff and residents, replacement or maintenance of equipment and homes for the residents in our care. We have been the recipient of the generosity of community businesses who have donated goods and services in the past, and look forward to continuing our partnerships.
Opengate is beyond grateful for your contribution to the daily lives of our individuals. Now, in the heat of summer, we hope you will carry on with us and our summer appeal!
