Making a Difference

The Center of Hope Foundation supports the individuals, life care workers and staff of Maryhaven Center of Hope. The Foundation sustains the financial support for all programs, services and facilities within the Maryhaven community through ongoing charitable contributions.

Donations allow us to fulfill our mission to help children and adults who have special needs realize their full potential and participate in their community through education, work and home life. Such needs include intellectual and physical disabilities, mental health issues and/or substance abuse/dependence.

Donors can support Maryhaven for a variety of reasons:

  • To support our mission of helping our children and adults reach their greatest potential.
  • To help fund specific projects, programs and services including vocational education, new equipment and other work place opportunities.
  • To underwrite ongoing support for needed programs and services.
  • To help our staff reach their greatest potential.

Annual Appeal

The annual appeal provides unrestricted funds to support all of Maryhaven’s programs and services. It is launched at the end of each year with a mailing to all parents and friends of Maryhaven.

Annual Special Events

Throughout the year Maryhaven sponsors fundraising events in the community, which raises awareness of our programs and services while also providing needed funding.

Tree of Life

The leaves on Maryhaven’s tree of life are perfect for celebrating life’s milestones.

Deferred Planned Gifts

Planned giving offers a different approach to charitable giving. The approach focuses on gifts that come from accumulated resources instead of current income and on gifts that provide you with the substantial tax benefits while providing Maryhaven with the future gifts. With planned giving, you can enjoy the advantage of combining your charitable wishes with other financial, tax, and estate planning goals. We urge all prospective contributors to consult with advisors for specific opinions.

Deferred opportunities may include:

  • Bequests
  • Revocable/Non-Revocable Living Trusts
  • Life Estate Agreements
  • Life Insurance & Annuity Policies
  • IRA and other Retirement Plans
  • Securities and other Financial Products

Our Legacy Society recognizes and honors extraordinary individuals whose estate and life income gifts will provide future support for Maryhaven and its individuals for years and decades to come.
