Contributions are always welcome

Since government funding does not cover the full cost of services and programs, Shore must maintain a strong private funding base, made up of individuals, foundations, corporations, and community partners, in order to continue delivering high-quality support for the nearly 400 children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities that we serve. Every dollar donated is much needed and greatly appreciated.

Here are some of the many ways you can give to Shore:

  • Cash or Checks (made payable to Shore Community Services)
  • Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, AmEx)
  • Donor Advised Funds (DAF)
  • Gifts of Stock and/or Real Estate
  • Name Shore as a beneficiary of your will, trust, estate, or retirement plans*
  • Make a contribution in honor of or in memory of a loved one
  • Sponsor one of our events
  • Host a fundraiser for Shore

*You can find more information on our Legacy Society, or how to set up a variety of trust funds to benefit you and your loved ones while also supporting Shore, by contacting us at (847) 982-2030 x 221.

Circle of Caring
