Thanks to our loyal donors, a positive difference has been made in the lives of the individuals we serve this year. Faithful donations allow them opportunities to experience life beyond their expectations, and we enjoy the pleasure it brings when they excel. We come to the end of another year, reflecting optimistically on outcomes, and looking forward to future successes for our individuals.
Once again, Opengate is participating in the social media campaign, #GivingTuesday which occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to kick off charity giving at the end of each year.
Many of the needs of our individuals are not covered by our funding sources and we rely on private contributions to help cover the gaps. Some of those items are community outings, sporting events, educational activities, holiday parties, keeping our facilities up to date, providing health and safety products and services, the latest electronics, and better self-advocacy and staff training. Every gift creates hours of learning and delight.
The importance of private donations can never be understated. Without this support, many projects would not be possible and our individuals’ experiences would not be as rich.
We launch our 2017 Year End #GivingTuesday Campaign with the goal of reaching even more potential donors. Will you help us? Opengate donors always rise to the challenge and today you are challenged to encourage those in your community to consider their year-end donation as a gift to the individuals at Opengate.
Moving into a new year we stand firm on our mission to provide the best life experiences for our individuals. You are our best partner in fulfilling our mission year after year. As always, Opengate is grateful for the participation of our parents, long term donors, and supporters from the communities we serve.
