How to Help

Make A Difference

Donations are crucial to the success of our organization. They go directly to the cost of operations, providing education and a better quality of life for our participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The funds we receive from the state never completely support all the services we offer, so we rely on the support of the community to make up the difference. All donations are tax-deductible.

Find out how to donate via credit card, PayPal, or check. You can also make credit card gifts over the phone by calling the development office at (973) 664-1770 x16.

While we encourage donations at any time of the year, our Annual Appeal takes place each fall. We hope you will consider a donation in support of the programs and services we provide to individuals and families with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Make your donation go even further! If your employer offers a matching gift program, we encourage you to consult with your human resources department to find out if your donation qualifies. Call us at (973) 664-1770 if you have questions about matching gifts.

Appreciated securities can provide an attractive means of giving. Through this type of gift, an individual can receive a charitable income tax deduction and avoid paying tax on the capital gains that would be due if the stocks were sold.

A gift of securities may be made by transferring the stock to Avidd Community Services. Please note: it should not be sold to a broker; it must be transferred, which is a simple process.
