Pledge to Help Individuals Grow on #GivingTuesday

November 17, 2016

Have you made your pledge to support our community on #GivingTuesday? A national day dedicated to giving back, #GivingTuesday is November 29. On #GivingTuesday last year, our community raised over $21,000 in just 24 hours, proving that together we can make an amazing impact in one day. All of the money we raise on November 29 will directly support our innovative solutions to support individuals with disabilities to access opportunities and plan for the future.

During the past few weeks, we’ve shared stories of individuals who have grown because of your support of Center for Independent Futures. Here are a few...

  • After moving from to Evanston from California, Center for Independent Futures helped Jenny grow a support network and the skills she needs for an independent life far from her family.
  • Since moving out of a restrictive group home environment, Patrick has grown into a full, active life in Evanston.
  • With our support at his high school's transition program, David learned the skills he needed to pursue his dream career.
  • Through independent living support and life skills tutoring, Center for Independent Futures helps Lindsay grow into an amazing friend, coworker, and artist.
  • Our Activities Program helps Sandra grow in her connections, communication skills, and experiences.

Thanks to a generous opportunity from The Coleman Foundation, new and increased donations given online on #GivingTuesday will be matched up to a total of $10,000, meaning your contribution could go twice as far to support the growth of our community. Every dollar of gifts from new donors will be matched. For returning donors, The Coleman Foundation will double any increase of your #GivingTuesday contribution above your largest gift in 2015. To learn how to make sure your gift gets matched on November 29, contact Elizabeth at (847) 328-2044. Each gift, no matter what size, makes a difference.
