Make a Difference

The people we serve rely on the generosity of those who believe that every person, despite their challenges, should be treated with dignity and have the opportunity to develop their full potential.

You can help create brighter futures for many adults and children with special needs. Donations received from friends, foundations and businesses directly improve the quality of life for all RHD clients, and allow RHD to continue developing caring, effective and innovative programs that help people in need build better lives for themselves.

You can also send a check as a tax-deductible donation, in any amount, to:

Support RHD and Receive an Unprecedented Tax Benefit

2020 has become a once in a generation opportunity for charitable giving. With donors needed now more than ever, the CARES Act aims to encourage charitable giving by improving the tax incentives in 2020.  For individual donors, the tax deductions for cash gifts had previously been limited to 60% of adjusted gross income (AGI).  This limitation has been suspended for this year, allowing donors to deduct 100% of income. Many donors are taking advantage by coupling their charitable gifts with other income generating strategies such as a Roth conversion or employee stock option exercise, while literally paying NO income tax. Your gift could save you thousands of dollars while improving the lives of our community members! 

Resources for Human Development accepts in-kind donations, which can include furniture for our residential facilities, books for our libraries and reading rooms, or any goods and services — including volunteering. Because RHD is a national organization supporting more than 160 programs across the country, there is no centralized mechanism for coordinating volunteer efforts or in-kind donations at a program. Please contact RHD programs directly for information on how to make an in-kind donation, share your time with consumers, help out in a program’s office, or lend your expertise to an advisory board or special event.
