Make a Difference Today
We have proven success in helping individuals achieve meaningful adult lives that include work, independence and friendship. Your support will help further these efforts and directly impact the life of a young man or woman challenged by disabilities.
Whether you want to support Vista in carrying out its mission, make a gift so students and members can get some “extras”, or wish to support members who struggle to afford the services they need, Vista has a donation program to fit.
- Annual Appeal and Unrestricted Gifts: Monies donated to Vista’s Annual Appeal support the overall services and training. These donations help keep the quality of services. Gifts to the Annual Appeal provide immediate results by supporting additional and improved services to our students and members.
- Tribute: Make a gift to Vista in Honor or Memory of a friend or loved-one. For more information on this program, please contact the Development Department at Vista.
- Student/Member Enrichment Fund: This fund was established in 2006 to help Vista provide some of the “extras” that enhance the lives of students and members. This fund has provided large immediate benefits to students and members by underwriting events, items and activities that are not typically offered such as Vista’s previous Variety Shows, the purchasing outdoor furniture for Vista’s main campus, and a Smartboard to enhance training activities.
Gifts to Vista go to work immediately, offering our students and members an active and productive life that they may not otherwise have. Your support underwrites all programs and services for students and members to find a job, live in their own homes, and socialize with their own circle of friends.
Just as a building needs a firm foundation to support its structure, Vista’s foundation is a strong endowment. Your support to the Vista Endowment Fund, Inc. underwrites our present strength as well as its future security. The Endowment Fund provides a legacy in perpetuity to benefit current and future students and members. Endowment funds are invested to grow as well as to produce income annually. A portion of this annual income is used to enhance Vista’s excellence, and a portion is reinvested to increase value and future earnings.
Lifetime of Support
People do not outgrow their disabilities, but may outlive their family members who support them. This is a fundamental truth that often worries families and the individual with disabilities. Who will be there when we no longer can? We have promised to be there as a life-long partner to help members maintain their highest level of independence and quality of life. Vista has a nearly three decade tradition of keeping that promise, and will continue to with your support.
