The ACLD Foundation’s Year End Appeal is a great way for supporters to make an annual gift or holiday-time gift. With levels of giving to fit any budget, your support is helping to provide an enviable life for the children and adults supported by ACLD each day.
A message from our President/CEO
This time of year is one filled with light, joy and giving. As you may recall from last year’s Year End Appeal, we kicked off our Generator Campaign with a goal of having a generator in every ACLD residence. I am pleased to provide you with an update on the success of the campaign, and how you can help shine a light in the darkness.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, last year we raised $115,000 in the appeal! Together with funds released from the ACLD Foundation, we purchased 7 generators for our homes. The homes at Westwind, Lynbrook and Oyster Bay have already had their generators installed, and by year’s end, the homes at Washington Avenue, Oak Lake, West Hempstead, and Seaford will have theirs as well.
Currently, we have 12 homes with a permanent generator, and 4 with portable generators. Thanks to the additional 7 generators added this year, 19 of our homes will now have permanent generators, to weather any storm. By the end of this multi-year campaign, we will have installed generators in each of our 46 homes – all thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
Be the light for ACLD. To ensure that no ACLD residence is left in the dark, we are once again counting on you to help us match, if not, surpass last year by securing your donation today. With your help, you have the power to protect our more than 400 residents across 46 residences from storm surges, heatwaves, and other deadly environmental circumstances our area has seen. These actions will help ensure the safety and comfort of our ACLD homes, and will allow us to continue in pursuit of enviable lives for the adults and children we support.
The ACLD Foundation offers a range of gift-giving opportunities including cash, appreciated stock, real estate, life insurance, retirement benefits, and bequests. And don’t forget matching gifts!
On behalf of all those who turn to us for support, thank you for being the light for the people we support each and every day.
