HDC | To succeed. To achieve. To grow. To be happy.

Ways to Give to HDC

  • Gifts of Cash
    Gifts of cash are always welcome. Simply make a check out to “HDC” and drop it off or put it in the mail. If you want to make the gift in memory of or in honor of someone, just enclose a note. If your company has a matching gift program, simply enclose the form along with your check.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    HDC accepts gifts of homes, farms, and lots under certain stipulations. Contact the Development Office for more information.
  • Life Insurance
    Several options are available when gifting life insurance. Some of these options can be carried out by simply completing a form that can be obtained from the insurance company. Here are several options:
  • Purchase a new policy or donate one you currently own and no longer need
  • Name HDC as the beneficiary or partial beneficiary to a policy
  • Assign ownership of a life insurance policy to HDC
  • Bequests (Click here for the brochure “Will Bequests Made Easy”) Leaving a legacy through your will offers many options, such as:
    • Specifying a specific amount of money
    • Leaving a specific piece of property (a house, jewelry, collections, etc.)
    • Designating a percentage or fraction of the estate
    • Leaving a residual bequest after all other bequests are satisfied.
  • Gifts of Stock
    You can transfer stock to the Center through a simple form available in the Development Office or you can have your broker contact us. By making a direct transfer of appreciated securities to HDC, you can avoid capital gains tax.
  • Retirement Assets
    You can name HDC as a beneficiary of your retirement accounts and leave other assets to heirs.

When making a gift to HDC, you may choose to designate where you would like your donation to go. You may choose to support a particular program or project. You can also designate your donation to be added to the HDC Endowment Fund where earnings from the fund will be available for many years to come.

Handicapped Development Center

People with disabilities have the same fundamental rights and needs as everyone else. They want to be loved, to feel worthy, and to be part of their community. HDC helps people achieve those goals.

By being consumers, employees, taxpayers, and neighbors, HDC participants achieve a sense of belonging. From the work they do, they experience pride and satisfaction for doing a job well and being rewarded by a paycheck. By living in the community, they learn what it's like to pay bills and how to be a responsible citizen and a good neighbor.

On these hot days, those new umbrellas are a welcome break from the sun, especially when people are waiting for their buses at the end of the day. Thanks for the grant to put these up Theisen's!
