New Horizons Foundation
Charitable donations from individuals, businesses and foundations have been a part of New Horizons' history since the agency was formed in 1974.
Long before New Horizons was eligible for state and federal monies to operate its programs, cash contributions from people who believed in its mission funded the agency's initial work. In 1991, the New Horizons Foundation was created to further the long-standing commitment of countless volunteers, supporters and friends who have given of their time, talent and financial support for more than 30 years.
Much of the Foundation's work of raising funds to enhance both the quality and quantity of New Horizons' services is accomplished at a variety of special events held throughout the year, through mailed appeals, grant proposals to foundations, memorial donations, planned giving arrangements such as wills and trusts and a capital campaign.
A critical part of the Foundation's success is the commitment of time and talent volunteered by communityminded individuals. From board members to event volunteers, the Foundation offers many opportunities to anyone interested in furthering New Horizons' mission of providing quality services to children and adults who have developmental disabilities. Whether its assisting in the purchase of a pair of glasses or helping to pay for a special needs camp, the New Horizons Foundation strives to provide financial assistance where needed within the Agency.
