Home Ways to Support AADD

The AADD Annual Fund Gift

Have you recently met an individual with a developmental disability? They’re an exceptional group of very special people. Perhaps you wonder what life is like for them and their families as they reach adulthood.

Unfortunately, situations are often bleak for special needs individuals and their families. Nationwide, only 20% of this population are able to obtain employment. With no social outlet or financial independence, adults with conditions such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Down syndrome can easily fall into great physical and emotional turmoil as they age without support.

Association for Adults with Developmental Disabilities (AADD) works to relieve special needs adults and their families from this turmoil. By providing targeted educational programs and weekend social learning activities to over 120 special needs adults, our organization plays a vital role in integrating our members into a society that many of us take for granted. At AADD our adult members have a safe place to meet and confide in each other while learning important life skills, making it possible for 70% of them to be gainfully employed.  

We need your help! The weekly educational discussions and social activities that our members have enjoyed for many years are becoming increasingly expensive. At the same time, many corporate and family foundations we have depended on in the past have lessened or even eliminated their giving amounts. This is why we are asking you to help leverage these costs. You can directly impact the life of a developmentally disabled adult in our community by selecting one of the choices on the form below and sending it back to us with your tax-deductible donation. 

On behalf of our members, families, and staff, we truly thank you for your support of AADD. Please call our office at 215-886-9990 with any questions or suggestions regarding the work we do.

Thank you for your support!

The AADD Legacy Society

We acknowledge the generosity of donors who have make provision for AADD in their estate plans by including them in our Legacy Society

You can easily make a legacy gift to support AADD’s future. Your gift can make a difference – even a small amount can have a large impact over time. A simple directive in your will can offer much needed support to AADD and make a difference in the lives of our members and their families.  You can start today by making sure you have an up-to-date will or living trust reflecting your charitable intentions. You may want to contact your financial advisor, lawyer or accountant to get assistance with establishing a charitable gift. Remember to think beyond cash gifts – you can leave stocks, real estate and insurance policies to charitable organizations. You can also make your favorite charity a beneficiary of life insurance, a pension plan or an IRA.

For more information, please contact Rachel Kaufman, Executive Director, at 215-886-9990 ext.1 or rkafman@aaddpa.org

Please join AADD as we walk to raise funds to support our mission and recognize the lasting impact of several important individuals from our history.

The 2023 walk is named in honor of Marci Cherry, a beloved facilitator for AADD who lost her battle with cancer in 2021. Marci brought so much strength, enthusiasm, and passion to AADD, we are grateful for her memory.

In celebration of our 50th anniversary, we will recognize three of the original AADD members who helped establish AADD in 1973 – Liz Forlini, Jon Garr, and Harriet London. 

Larry Rubin will receive the Godorov Award to commemorate his 14 years of leadership, dedication, and commitment as AADD’s former CEO.
