We want to invite everyone to become part of our story and our mission, and we appreciate every bit of support – whether in the form of donations or precious time – that has made the Vanguard Landing dream a reality.

We are absolutely in AWE of our amazing supporters, who joined forces this year to make 2016 a tremendous success. We are getting so much closer to creating a special place where adults with intellectual disabilities can thrive, lead fulfilling lives and engage in enriching social and professional activities.

As the new year begins, we invite you and your family and friends to create an opportunity for our community with a commitment to give of your time, money and heart throughout the year! We simply could not accomplish what we do without the support of our generous donors.

While resident tuition (private-pay and Medicaid Waiver), trusts and life insurance policies, on-site businesses and shops, facility rental and fundraisers will provide a percentage of future operating expenses, the construction of Vanguard Landing’s Campus and its endowment funds are possible only through the generous support from individual and corporate contributors like you.  Please take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to make an extraordinary difference today with your tax-exempt gift.

Something we get asked all the time by people is: “I love what you are doing. How can I help?”

This is a great question, and one that has a variety of answers!

To answer your question, we have come up with an assortment of ways you can get involved with helping Vanguard Landing. We call this the “Hierarchy of Helping” and more info can be found on our blogDonate

Planned Giving

 This provides a way for you to make a gift to VGL and at the same time receive favorable tax considerations. VGL has received many of its most significant commitments of support in the form of planned gifts, and we remain deeply grateful to our friends who provide for our organization’s future in this way. By considering a planned giving option, you may be able to make a larger gift than you thought | a gift that also benefits you.

Life Insurance Policies | Tribute and Memorial Donations
There is currently one Memorial Fund that has been established in honor of Dr. Sue and Grover Dear to help create the VanGarden.
We welcome any others including the initiation of several endowment funds such as:
– Resident Scholarship
– Maintenance
– Future Capital
You can give to these or help to initiate another.

Gift of Stock

A charitable gift of stocks provides an opportunity for tax savings while supporting VGL.  A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation in value.

Naming Opportunities

As we finalize our plans for the design and construction of Vanguard Landing’s campus, a wide range of Naming Opportunities will be established. These are great opportunities to leave your mark on the campus! Please check back in soon regarding Naming Opportunities!


 We welcome the opportunity to work with any group or business to help us raise funds and awareness of this wonderful project!
