Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday takes place on November 30th, 2021 this year. Search CEO Cory Gumm shares, “Search has participated in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to generosity and giving back, for 8 consecutive years. The Coleman Foundation has been a partner for us every one of those years. We are so grateful for their support, and for the opportunity they provide to our incredible donors to make their collective generosity go even further. Together, we have been able to raise essential private funding for Search’s programs and services impacting over 350 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities every year.”
“We couldn’t have made it through the unprecedented challenges of the past 20 months without the support of our incredible friends and families. As we slowly begin to rebuild and reinvent our services for a post-pandemic era, we are counting on our supporters more than ever to help us keep the momentum going.”
Donations to Search this Giving Season will make a real and lasting impact. All donations will go to support our programs and homes; allow our individuals to explore, volunteer and work in their local communities; access high-quality healthcare and behavioral health services; and spread disability awareness through trainings at businesses, schools and organizations in the Chicago area and beyond.
This Giving Season, Give for the HEART of it. Give for the match.
