Light the Way Circle

Annual Giving Individual Membership
Become a member today!

The Light the Way Circle was founded in 1998, to encourage and recognize important donors. This special group of friends is comprised of individuals who contribute $500 or more during the year. Circle members are also recognized on a wonderful donor tree painted on a prominent wall in the Center’s lobby. Each acrylic leaf on the tree holds the name of a Circle member. The tree becomes a learning experience for the children as they explore the leaves’ shape, texture and donor names with their hands.

Light the Way Circle contributions sustain our programs and support the children as they learn to overcome obstacles and achieve independence.
