Become a Monthly Donor

February 05, 2021

Everyone knows that donations help meet the gap between the state-set tuitions that Crossroads receives, and what it actually costs to run an effective and life-changing program. In order to make progress with essential skills, the majority of the students we serve require a higher level of service than they are able to receive in other settings. Highly individualized, specialized programming with data analysis of their performance of goals benefits the children and allows the team to adapt programming in direct accordance with what the child needs. To do all this requires a greater level of attention, individualization, service time than most schools can provide. We are committed to doing what it takes to help each student learn the most essential skills for living functional and independent lives. We appreciate each and every gift, and every single donor.

At this time, the beginning of a brand new year, many people are thinking ahead to their budgets for the year, and how charitable giving will fit in. We’d like you to consider becoming a monthly donor. Whereas sometimes a large donation at one time can be difficult, dividing it across the span of a year can help you to achieve your giving goals and gives the organization the additional benefit of planning, and being able to rely on funds coming in.

Meet Carolyn Oill, our very first friend to become a monthly donor, and hear what she has to say about why she opted early on for doing so.

Why donate monthly? It is often difficult to justify an outlay of several hundred dollars on Giving Tuesday, or for a special event (e.g., Crossroads’ annual Gala); but you would be surprised how little you will miss, say, $20 per month.  It’s easy on the budget and at the end of the year, you may be surprised to see what a difference your monthly gift has made. Why donate to Crossroads? My 23-year-old nephew is a testament to the commitment and caring of Crossroads’ staff.  Diagnosed with autism at almost 3 years old, when he could not communicate or make eye contact, he is now articulate, engaged, social, smart, funny, and attending college.  I could not be more proud of him, and Crossroads played a big part in bringing him out of his world and into ours.  In short, I value the work Crossroads promotes, and I want to ensure that other children on the spectrum have the chances that my nephew had and has. Happy New Year!
