Day in and day out, our lives at UDSF revolve around helping people with disabilities live safe, happy, independent lives. It’s our life’s passion. But unless you have a friend, family member, or associate with a disability, chances are, you might not realize just how many challenges they face every minute of every day, and the many important services they require, without which they often are forced to leave their homes to live in a care facility. Without the support of community donations, many of our programs would not be possible.
People of all ages and all walks of life, despite their amazing courage, have to rely on others because of their disabilities. And they rely heavily on UDSF. So, armed with big hearts, an innovative spirit, extraordinary knowledge and experience, and a proven track record of helping people with disabilities, we’re always there for them and their families. But, sadly, the people who need our services can’t always afford them. This is where you can make a meaningful difference.
Every gift is important. And you can take comfort in knowing that 94 cents of every dollar goes directly to services and programs that benefit people with disabilities. There are many ways to contribute, too, including gifts of cash, purchasing an item from our “Shopportunities” collection, becoming a corporate partner in any of a number of innovative ways, workplace giving, adopting a planned giving strategy, participating in capital and endowment campaigns, volunteering, and much more. For a more detailed description of the many ways you can help positively affect lives through your generosity, explore Get Involved.
We touch so many people in so many ways, enriching lives right here in our community. And you can tailor your gift to where your passion lies. For example, you can direct your gift to . . .
Support the work of UDS in helping people with disabilities, veterans and the elderly live more independently through the UDSF Independent Living Resource Center, which helps individuals navigate the maze of public and private services available to them. Additionally, the Center supports in-home personal care, care management, accessible home modifications, durable medical equipment and other services.
If you’re all about putting smiles on the faces of younger folks, your gift can be directed to support the various sports, recreation, and arts programs that UDSF offers to help kids with disabilities live fuller and happier lives – getting out more often, being active, and honing their socialization skills.
If you’re a dog lover, your gift can go toward the support of these amazing canines that bring critical daily practical help, hope, and happiness into the lives of people with disabilities. The cost to train and place a single UDS Service Dog is upwards of $25,000.
If you have questions about how your gift will be used or the services UDSF provides, please contact our Development Department at 800-995-9581 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
