Make a Donation
The generosity of our donors and partners makes our mission possible.
Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of the people we serve. Your generosity helps us meet the needs of the more than 3,000 people with disabilities that we support annually. Donors help us put the beyond in what we do every day at Ability Beyond.
Your support empowers all individuals, no matter their ability, with the tools they need to live independent and productive lives.
Donate Online Now
Your support will directly impact the lives of thousands of people with disabilities living in our communities. Our services cost about half as much as those provided by State agencies, while our administrative overhead is well below the industry norm.
Donate By Mail
To send us a donation by check or money order, please make all checks payable to Ability Beyond and mail to:
C/O Development Office
4 Berkshire Blvd.
Bethel, CT 06801
Many companies will match charitable contributions made by employees and retirees, doubling–and often tripling–the impact of your personal gift. Contact your employer’s human resources department to find out if it has a matching gift program. Complete and send the matching gift form along with your contribution to Ability Beyond.
Fundraise for Us
Individuals and organizations can host an independent fundraising event to support Ability Beyond. Third-party fundraisers in the past have ranged from 5K run/walks, special events at schools and churches, and much more. Individuals can also create a personal online fundraising page to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special milestone using our peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising platform.
Trusts and Wills
Many supporters choose to leave a donation to Ability Beyond in their trusts and wills to increase their long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetime. By including us in your will or living trust, you play an important part in ensuring the continuation of our mission long into the future. To make a bequest commitment, simply contact Ability Beyond to request the proper wording, then ask your attorney to revise your current will.
Donating a gift of life insurance is one of the simplest ways to make a significant contribution to Ability Beyond and establish your legacy of giving. Call or write to your insurance company to request a form to make this change of beneficiary on your existing policy.
A qualified charitable distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) makes it easier to use your IRA assets, during your lifetime, to make charitable gifts. If you are age 73 or older, you can transfer as much as $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to Ability Beyond without counting this transfer as taxable income. The most common way to make this charitable rollover gift is to submit a request to your retirement fund custodian.
Ability Beyond is a non-profit,+ recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS. Donations made, where a return of good or services are not provided, are tax deductible.
Your contributions matter and create life changing opportunities and programs for families and our community members.
