End of Year Giving 2017

With your help, we will meet our goal to raise $5,000 by the end of December to fund in-home assistive technology. Thanks to new technology, individuals living with disabilities can safely participate in routine activities in their homes. These devices enhance independence and boost self-confidence for the people we serve.

You can make a difference. Your year-end gift to REACH helps remove barriers. Make your gift today!

REACH SHREDDING IS NAID CERTIFIED!

REACH Shredding is now the only certified document destruction center in Juneau. The National Association for Information Destruction, NAID, sets the standards for the information destruction industry and verifies the qualifications of certified providers through a comprehensive scheduled and unannounced audit program. This rigorous process supports the needs of organizations by helping them meet numerous laws and regulations requiring protection of confidential customer information. NAID certification assures REACH Shredding customers that we adhere to the highest standards in destroying their paper documents, X-Ray film, and electronic data. Congratulations to our shredding team!

REACH’S FIRST GIVING TUESDAY WAS A SUCCESS!

On November 28th, we held a #GivingTuesday campaign for the first time. We wish to thank everyone who made a gift and are happy to report that REACH met our match goals and then some! Thanks very much to the Skaggs Foundation for their $3,000 match! Thanks to them, we received over $7,500! A number of gifts were made in memory or in honor of an individual. We would like to recognize the following in whose name REACH received gifts:

  • Marianne Manning
  • Cindy Zackowitz
  • Richard Fagundes
  • Gene & Dorothy Sullivan
  • Mark Davis
  • REACH Adult Services
  • St. Leo’s Parish, Tacoma, WA

Though #GivingTuesday is wrapped up,  the fund raising efforts are not! REACH is about to kick-off our Year-End drive! Thirty-one percent of ALL annual giving happens in December, with the 30th and 31st the most popular days of the year to give. This is a great time to make an additional gift, a first-time gift, or begin a monthly pledge. A recurring gift of $15, $20, or whatever you can afford each month goes a long way to change lives.

As you prepare to make your end-of-year charitable gifts, please include REACH on your list of nonprofits that are worthy of your support. You’ll be doing a great thing for those who need our support.

Save the Date! Giving Tuesday

When we all pull together!

The Tuesday following Thanksgiving is Giving Tuesday, a global day of philanthropy. On November 28th, we come together to give back in ways that impact our communities in positive ways. With your support, REACH and the Canvas Art Studio & Gallery will continue to provide excellent programs and services to those living with disabilities. Serving children and adults in seven communities, REACH provides a broad scope of impact that removes barriers and brings inclusion to individuals who might otherwise lack opportunity. And, your gift to REACH of $100 or more will be matched 1-1 by the Skaggs Foundation. You can make a difference in the life of a child or adult with your Giving Tuesday gift to REACH!

ENVIRONMENTAL ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY ENHANCES LIVES

Our team is dedicated to finding assistive technology in order to not only use when staff are not present but to optimize the services being provided. We are always looking for ways to strengthen our individuals independence. Assistive technology allows for the individual to be in control of their life. Some of the technology being used are voice prompts to remind of daily tasks, smoke alarms that alert the family and team of the individual in case of an emergency, appliance sensors in order to remind the individual to turn off the stove or other appliances, and home security such as video surveillance. Our REACH team will assist our families in customizing and installing technology to suit the needs of our individuals. We are always looking for ways to improve the lives of the people we serve.
