We appreciate your support!
Saguaro Foundation is a 501 c3, non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Saguaro has grown significantly over the last decade. With that growth comes an increase in expenses and overhead and we rely entirely on the support of the community to continue our work. All donations made to the Saguaro Foundation directly benefit our patients by allowing us to elevate our services, support our expert staff and cover operating expenses.
Can I choose where my money goes?
Absolutely! Every donor has the option to earmark their contribution(s) to Saguaro. Should you choose to donate, you will be given the opportunity to specify which of the following programs you would like your funds to be distributed to directly:
Group Home – Funding for this department is dedicated to elevating quality of life through travel and social opportunities, while creating lasting memories for our members. These activities include vacations to Disneyland, SeaWorld, etc, hosting monthly social gatherings for all members (Cookouts, Holiday Celebrations, etc.), and community area furnishings to keep the house feeling like home – updated with the latest and greatest.
Behavioral Health Services – Many of our members do not receive any income of their own. Funds in the BHS department are used to purchase clothing and daily living necessities for members who are subject to those circumstances. This department also allocates money towards improving members’ bedrooms (dressers, bed set, linens), as well as taking members on community outings and vacations.
Home and Community Based Services – Money earmarked for HCBS is dedicated to community building events including but not limited to weekend outings and fees associated with public activities such as bowling or mini-golf.
DTT – At Saguaro, we want the children in our programs to be stimulated, entertained, and motivated! DDT funds help us improve the program overall, purchase games and supplies, and take the kids to movies, trampoline parks, etc.
STS – Dollars donated to STS will be used to maintain the vehicle fleet to ensure safe, reliable transportation for our members and our staff. In addition it will help to provide match money for vehicles acquired through grants, match money for subsidized trips, etc.
Day Programs – Our day programs rely on this funding to cover the cost of both indoor and outdoor activities for our members as well as community outings to the movies, restaurants etc. This funding also allows us to make overall improvements to the program as a whole.
Administration – Any money earmarked for administration is distributed between regular administrative expenses including training and development supplies for our staff such as, CPR manikins, workbooks, etc., events for our members throughout the year, holiday celebrations, awards and recognition for our staff (ie. employee anniversary plaques).
