WAYS TO HELP REACH UNLIMITED
Fundraising is a critical component of what helps Reach Unlimited thrive. Annually, Reach is challenged to raise nearly $2000 per full time client to help meet the difference between funds earned and the reality of what it costs to operate our programs. Annually that translates to $800,000 needed to bridge the gap and make ends meet.
Reach takes a multifaceted approach to garnering the financial support needed to keep things running. Staff members and volunteers work to secure grants and foundation monies for operating expenses and funds toward making the second phase of the Learning Activity Center a reality. Staff and volunteers commit a good number of hours each week to help others learn about reach, get connected, and cultivating members for the Friends of Reach Giving Society. Seizing opportunities for community volunteerism and business partnerships are key to connecting support to Reach.
There are lots of ways supporters help Reach Unlimited achieve the mission of helping clients Live, Learn, and Earn successfully each year.
Friends of Reach Giving Society
By making a commitment as small as $83.33 per month for five years, Friends of Reach help ensure long range sustainable funds that help us cover the difference between earned funds from Medicaid waiver programs, ICF-IDD funds, and private pay revenues and the real cost of operating our programs.
