Major Gift from the Nadolna Family Launches Heritage Society

We are thrilled to announce that Alan Nadolna, Chair of the Board of Directors, and his wife, Suzanne Averill, member of the Board of Directors, have made a major gift in support of the Heritage Society. Alan and Suzanne have been affiliated with Search for more than 25 years and their leadership on the Board is greatly respected and appreciated. They both have a deep affection and knowledge of Search's work, the people who provide our services, and those being served.

Alan and Suzanne value and recognize the impact of private philanthropy, which inspired them to make a $300,000 gift of life insurance to the newly created Heritage Society. The Heritage Society is comprised of professional and philanthropic leaders who have contributed significant investments towards improving the lives of individuals with disabilities. The purpose of the Heritage Society is to create a fund that is a source of permanent financial stability for the organization. Gifts totaling $5,000 or more qualify and can be made as a one-time donation, annually, quarterly, monthly, or cover a specified time period (at donors discretion). Members of the Heritage Society have access to a number of exclusive benefits. Please see our webpage to find out more!

This leadership gift from Alan and Suzanne is a monumental expression of their ongoing commitment to Search. They hope to encourage others to help assure Search's ability to weather difficult financial times.

We thank Alan and Suzanne for their generous support and invite you to join them as a member of the Heritage Society. Your act of goodwill ensures that our mission of empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to participate fully in the community will live on for generations.
