Making a Difference

Make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and a difference in your own life.

People who donate do so to express their gratitude, honor a loved one, or share a part of themselves with others. The benefits of these gifts are quite extraordinary.

A gift can give:

  • A voice to a child who cannot speak, through the latest communication device that enables desires and needs to be expressed
  • Access to the world for an adult who is blind, by providing training on a computer with a speech synthesizer
  • Respite from the day-to-day challenges by providing an adult or child with a week at one of our summer camps.
  • And so much more!

There are many ways to make a gift to Oak Hill, but what is most important is finding the right way to help you meet your philanthropic goals.
Here are some of the ways to give to Oak Hill:

Commemorative Gifts – Some people choose to make their gifts in honor or in memory of a loved one or to celebrate a birthday or other special event. A notification is sent to the family or honoree, as well as the donor, in recognition of the gift. Gifts can be made online as well as via mail.

Annual Campaign – Oak Hill’s annual campaign supports the general operations of our programs and services. Gifts can be restricted to a particular program, should you so desire. Visit our latest campaign page to read about how your dollars are making a difference in the lives of those with disabilities that we serve.

Monthly Giving – If you are looking for a systematic, easy way to make your gift, the monthly giving option may be your best choice. This option allows you to make a pledge once a year and your gift is processed once a month via credit card.

Stocks , Securities, and Mutual Fund Shares -Donating stock, securities and/or mutual fund shares is an effective way to help us continue our mission for another 125 years. Making this gift is simple and offers you valuable financial benefits. You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds and the total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible. Additionally, there is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

Events – Oak Hill Signature Events offer a great opportunity for individuals, families, and corporations to come together and make a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve. Help by becoming a committee member, sponsor, underwriter, guest, or volunteer. 100% of the proceeds generated at our events directly benefit Oak Hill programs.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Michael Hoffer, Development & Outreach at Michael.Hoffer@OakHillCT.org or 860-769-3893.
