Ways to Donate

Since our programs are not fully funded by the government, we depend on your generosity to meet the needs of the clients and families we serve. Please consider a gift to Balance so we can continue to touch the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.

We offer several options.

DONATE – ADOPT A HOME

The Adopt A Home Program is designed to provide an opportunity to adopt one of our Adult Family Homes. We are committed to maintaining our adult family homes in a manner consistent with the quality standards of their neighborhoods. However, as a nonprofit there are limits to what we can accomplish which requires us to fundraise for repairs and upkeep of homes. Please consider joining this unique partnership with Balance to ensure and provide a meaningful life that is safe, well maintained, secure and pleasurable for our residents.

DONATE VIA A QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION

If you are 70½ or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. A Qualified Charitable Distribution (IRA Charitable Rollover) is a way you can help continue Balance’s work and benefit this year. Click here to learn more.
