Our 2019 Matching Gift Campaign is now underway!

Neil and Jane Golub

Matching Gift Sponsor: Neil Golub

After high school, Brendan Salmon attended a college program that didn’t provide him with the opportunity to integrate fully into campus life and Brendan wanted more. A lot more! Brendan urged his family to explore the Living Resources College Experience Program at the College of Saint Rose. After an overnight visit and interview, Brendan knew he found a college that was a perfect fit. Through our program, Brendan took classes including social skills, cooking, personal finance, navigation, and so much more. Brendan graduated in 2019 and is now living in an apartment with great friends and has a job he loves at St. Peter’s Hospital. 

Friends like YOU help us make a difference in the lives of families like Brendan’s.
Your contribution empowers individuals with disabilities to make their own choices and fulfill personal goals.

Your gift today, will be matched by the generosity of Neil Golub. “As a former teacher, my wife’s first love was education. Jane believed deeply that through education, all things are possible. Together we appreciated how Living Resources and their talented staff provide support to individuals with disabilities, helping them on their paths to success and independence through their educational programs. This is why I have issued this giving challenge and will match all donation responses, up to $5,000. I hope our commitment will encourage you to support Living Resources and individuals like Brendan to achieve their dreams. Together, we can positively impact lives.”
