Will you change the life of an adult with disabilities this holiday season?
Please join Search and our social enterprise JJsList.com on Nov 27, 2018 for #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity and giving back!
This giving season, in honor of #GivingTuesday, you have a special opportunity to double your impact. Your online gift of $175 or more to Search will be matched from Nov 1 - Nov 27!
Our goal is to raise $20,000 by midnight on Nov 27, #GivingTuesday. Gifts in any amount help us reach our goal!
Your gift to Search will empower an adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential, accept a valued role in their community and lead a rich, rewarding life.
Your #GivingTuesday donation will make it possible for individuals like:
- Katie to find a safe and supportive place to live;
- Ayanna & Pam to receive curriculum-based adult learning in topics like communication, literacy, art, science, math, and many more;
- Anton to succeed in his job at a local community business; and,
- Henry to advocate on behalf of himself and others with disabilities.
We invite you to become part of the Search family.
Your support means the world to Katie, Ayanna, Pam, Anton, Henry and the more than 500 individuals served by Search each year.
For the fifth year in a row Search has been invited to participate in The Coleman Foundation's #ILGive Matching Grants Program. In 2018, the foundation is matching all online donations of $175 or more made between Nov 1st - Nov 27th, up to a maximum of $10,000.
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, November 27, 2018 has been designated as a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world to come together to celebrate generosity and to give.
You don't need to be a millionaire or world leader to give back. #GivingTuesday was created with the belief that when everyday people join together in the spirit of giving back extraordinary things can happen.
Search is a member of the 2018 #ILGive Campaign.
#ILGive (prounounced "I'll Give") is Illinois' official Giving Tuesday campaign. The campaign connects Illinois residents with causes they care about. Last year, donors gave $13.4 million to Illinois social good organizations on #ILGive for #GivingTuesday!
Being able to live a full, active life in the community like everybody else, regardless of any disability is an extraordinary thing. Your support makes it all possible. We can't do what we do without you.
