Ways to Give

Every dollar, every donor, every year, changes lives.

From the simple gestures of kindness to a deep commitment of compassion, the generosity of the human heart is boundless. Every day we are presented with a chance to enrich the lives of others. Your donation or commitment of time helps extend the service and care Excentia brings to the community. The support you offer provides opportunities for growth, greater self-determination and a chance for individuals with intellectual disabilities to live fuller, richer lives – that is the gift at the heart of your generosity.

There are so many ways to give and be a part of something so special at Excentia. With our commitment to excellence, we invite you to get involved and participate as an individual, a family member, or someone looking to make a real difference as a staff member, volunteer or supporter.

Extra Give Committee

Why do you give extra? That is the question we are all asking during the Extra Give. Join us to plan our call center strategies. We need companies to join us as well as individuals- we will make calls to solicit donations from past donors, follow-up callers to say thank you, thank you note writers, and a few friends to help us stay organized and on task.

Road Rally Committee

Next year we will form a small committee to help locate new business stops for the Rally! Are you great at coming up with clues, riddles, and challenges? Then this is the committee for you, benefiting Excentia’s Life Enrichment Services.

Sips, Sweets, and Support Committee

This committee plans and executes Excentia’s Spring Un-Gala. Everything from finding donations for our auction and major sponsors for the event to setting up tables and manning the Flaringo Game- is what we do for the SSS!

Carl J. Witmeyer Memorial Golf Committee

The golf committee plans and executes the scramble-style golf tournament each year for the last 20 years. A commitment to the services Excentia’s S. June Smith Center provides is what keeps the golfers coming out year after year.
