Investing in the Future on Erie Gives Day

 Erie Gives

How can you easily increase the size of your charitable gift at no cost to you? Make a donation through Erie Gives! New this year:  two ways to make a difference!  Donate at on Tuesday, Aug. 13 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.  Or, download a form and send in your check to the Erie Community Foundation by Monday, Aug. 12.  Either way, your donation will receive a pro-rated matching gift from the Erie Community Foundation and its Erie Gives sponsors.

Donations to this year’s Erie Gives will help to fund construction of a new group offering enhanced support and accessibility for adults with significant physical challenges.  The home, expected to open in fall 2019, will provide: 

  • Four spacious bedrooms providing privacy for personal care needs. An office near the cluster of bedrooms keeps staff close by throughout the night.
  • Two living areas providing flexibility for residents’ interests and preferences.
  • A large kitchen with portions of the counter at wheelchair level to enable residents to participate in meal preparation.
  • An attractive brick edifice with an outdoor patio accented by flower gardens and trees.
  • Circular driveway for easier transportation.
  • Two completely accessible bathrooms.
  • Wider doorways and hallways.

Learn how you can invest in the new group home and other high quality services that will continue helping individuals and families in our community reach their potential for productive, fulfilling lives.
