The Living Resources Endowment/Legacy Society

Living Resources’ Legacy Society was established to help us keep our promise of a lifetime commitment to individuals with disabilities and their families. As our endowment fund grows, we will be able to use the interest earned to support our essential services and to meet our emerging needs. To learn more about the Legacy Society contact our Director of Philanthropy, Deneen Palmateer.

Corporate Sponsorship

A corporate sponsorship is an ideal way to get positive exposure for your business or company while at the same time supporting a great cause — Living Resources’ mission to provide life-enhancing services to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities or brain traumas and their families. Every year we have two major fundraising events available for corporate sponsorships:

  • The Art of Independence fundraiser is a cocktail reception that features the amazing artistic talents of our supported individuals and also, highlights the road to independence that many of them travel through education and employment. This wonderful event includes food, beverages, fun, raffles, and provides guests with a better understanding of the support we offer and how that makes a difference in the lives of those we serve.
  • Our annual golf tournament draws awareness to our College programs. Our Golf Tournament features a variety of hole-in-one opportunities including the chance to win a car and other cash prizes ($10,000/$5,000). Beverages and food abounds during the tournament beginning with breakfast, moving into beverage tastings and burgers on the course, as well as an afternoon luncheon. Throughout the day, golfers are afforded many opportunities to interact with our students, staff, and families and learn how their experience with Living Resources has lead to a more independent life.

If you would like to be a corporate sponsor of any of our events, Deneen Palmateer, Director of Philanthropy, would love to hear from you! Click here to contact.
