GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 3, 2019 and every day.
It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
On December 3, 2019, join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community. GivingTuesday.Org
For 50 years we have been fortunate to partner with generous donors to observe the growth of Opengate from a small organization serving approximately 30 people, to a premier behavioral health agency.
Throughout 2019 we published stories, memories, and individual accomplishments made possible only because, as an Opengate benefactor, YOU made it happen!
The addition of our weekly music therapy program allows residents like Brett the opportunity to express themselves through music. Funded by donations from Mrs. Claudia Marks, the program provides positive responses and reactions from the participants and enriches their experience.
Brett and his peers also attend social functions and parties along with sporting events supported entirely through private contributions. His parents, Dr. and Mrs. Roger Rose, made it possible to build the Rose Greenhouse in Somers allowing us to offer the gardening program in which residents find much pleasure.
Every day your support makes stories like Brett’s possible and assists our mission to give all of our individuals a quality life experience.
The development of new services comes with a price. Opengate scrutinizes each expansion project before approving to confirm that it will be successful. Many new programs are not covered under our regular funding sources and rely on financial sponsors for favorable outcomes. The benefit to individuals, their families, and the community is priceless.
We begin a new year with the goal of creating additional success stories for the individuals we serve, and we ask that you join us to clear the way for further expansion in 2020. Your special year-end contribution will make a lasting impact in their lives.
Our website has digital options to make contributions for the coming year and subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
Thank you to all of our donors for your continued support.
