Holiday Giving: 4 Ways You Can Help

Did you know that nearly 1/3 of all annual giving occurs in December? As a supporter of Lifeworks, a nonprofit serving people with disabilities for 55 years, we are reaching out to you in the hopes that you will consider the important work we do in your year-end giving.

Contributions from our donors make it possible for us to fuel the ambitions of the people we serve while helping our state become a leader in building inclusive communities.

Be a champion for disability inclusion. 1 in 4 adults has a disability; and yet, 80.9% of the population we serve were not part of the workforce last year. With Minnesota facing a severe labor shortage, there is no better time to invest in services committed to self-determined support and careers with competitive wages.

You can make an impact. We rely on contributions to continue offering high-quality, innovative services that provide opportunities for the people we serve to not just survive, but to thrive.

4 ways you can support Lifeworks:

1.  Donate: Whether one-time, monthly, or in honor of someone in your life, your tax-deductible gift is immediately put to work – funding opportunities that enhance independence and connect people with their communities. Click here to make your end-of-year gift, today!

2.  Share: Let family, friends, and colleagues know about Lifeworks important work. 2/3’s of the people who donate do not do any research before giving.  Rather, they give to organizations they already know or that are recommended by family and friends. Whether through social media, email, or face-to-face interactions – it all helps raise awareness!
