Connections is now offering naming opportunities to honor a family member or other loved ones. This is a meaningful way to support Connections while also recognizing someone in perpetuity. The following is a list of some options currently available.
Recreation and Vocational Center COMING SOON
The Recreation Center will be one of the favorite spaces for our students. Where they can have indoor play including gymnastics. Connections will also hosts many other activities that attract families, friends, and supporters.
We accept all forms of gifts to our general unrestricted fund, from cash, check and credit card payments, to stock gifts and other assets. A cash gift offers the highest federal income tax deduction and can have an even greater impact if your employer offers a matching gifts program.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Memorial and honorary gifts provide you with a meaningful way to honor and celebrate the life of a loved one. The family/individual being honored or remembered is sent an acknowledgement that notes your name as making a contribution.
Many employers match the charitable donations their employees make. If your company has such a program, request a matching gift form from your employer to maximize your donation.
Host Third Party Fundraisers to help Connections
Plan and/or sponsor an event to raise funds for Connections. This kind of activity is called a “third-party” fundraiser and has been hugely successful in the past! In addition to raising money, these activities provide an opportunity to introduce businesses to a new audience while also introducing a new audience to Connections. EVERYBODY wins!

We offer a variety of sponsorship opportunities for corporations to make a positive impact in their community and our organization by participating in our fundraising events. Many sponsors take part in our annual golf tournament and annual gala. Corporate giving, either through cash, grants, donations, or event sponsorship represents a major portion of the philanthropic support we receive each year.
In-Kind Gifts and Pro Bono Services
Some companies donate their products or offer their services on a free “pro bono” basis. We appreciate these kinds of donations as they help enhance our programs. These donations of products or valuable services help us accomplish our mission.
