Financial donations provide much needed support to Rutledge Center. Without these gifts, Rutledge Center would be unable to sustain the high level of services we so proudly provide. With so many worthwhile causes seeking funding one might ask, “Why Rutledge Center?” To answer this we feel one should ask themselves the following: Is this organization trusted? Is this organization financially sound? Does this organization have a vision for the future? Will this organization be here in 5 years, 10 years, or 50 years? Does this organization adapt to meet the changing needs of the people it supports? We assure you that the answer to these questions is a resounding “yes.”
We also gratefully receive in-kind donations that help off-set the costs of our programmatic and operational work – whether that be crafting supplies, services, food for special events, or whatever you can offer, we can and will put it to good use in the service of our mission.

THE ANNUAL FUND
The annual fund raises unrestricted dollars from individuals, corporations and foundations to help bridge the gap between Medicaid funding and the real cost of supporting people with developmental disabilities. This is accomplished in three ways: 1) It allows us to use your gift wherever the need is greatest. 2) It maintains essential functions like quality employment, daily activities, volunteer and recreation service, and much more. 3) It also helps with things like utilities, fuel, building maintenance and vehicle maintenance. Donations to the annual fund are vital to the future of Rutledge Center and the people we support. Consider a donation to the annual fund today – you can rest assured that your donation is going to very, very good use.
Whatever way you choose to support us, we want to thank you and let you know that you can rest assured that Rutledge Center can be trusted to be wise stewards of any gifts we receive. As an organization which has been in business since 1968, we have the knowledge, drive, adaptability and community connections to not just survive, but thrive!
