How You Can Help
When you donate to the 21 Plus Foundation you make it possible for us to provide programs and services to adults with disabilities at 21 Plus.
As one of the largest direct care service providers and advocates for people with disabilities in Ocean County, the 21 Plus Foundation's goal is to maximize the potential of the people receiving services to live full and dignified lives. Your contribution will help us provide housing services, support groups, education, job placement and daily living assistance.
While roughly 98% of our funding is reimbursed by the government, many of the programs that make 21 Plus a special place for people with disabilities have needs that are unmet by this government funding. Additional funds are needed each year at 21 Plus in order to continue providing quality opportunities. The needs of our individuals continue to increase as they age. Therefore, the Foundation has stepped up their efforts. They have set a goal of obtaining $200,000 in donations in 2011. Please help us reach our goal. We are depending on the generosity of people like you.
21 Plus Foundation, Inc., is a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. The Foundation is also registered as a Charitable Organization with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Division of Consumer Affairs.
There are many ways you can ensure the future of 21 Plus, including donations of cash or by funding an item on our "Wish List".
The items on the Wish List will improve the standards of our Adult Training Centers and group homes serving adults with developmental disabilities in our community.
100% of your donation will be used to purchase the item of your choice. Please contact our Finance Director, Mary Norman if you need assistance with your donation.
