Wouldn’t it be great to get a jump start on the holidays while wearing your flip flops? You can make an impact in a child’s life by making a charitable contribution to the Watson Institute – all from the comfort of your favorite beach chair!
The Watson Institute is a special education organization, serving children with special needs and their families in Western Pennsylvania for over 100 years!
Today, we’re sharing a few ideas to make your charitable efforts fun and exciting this holiday season, whether you are looking to make a donation personally or through your workplace!
- Does your company typically send out gifts to vendors or partner organizations each year? Ask your company to consider gifts to the Watson Institute this year!
- Make a gift to the Watson Institute to fund a need! Did you know that a gift of $100 provides day respite services for two children? Our day respite program provides 6 hours of free time for parents of children with special needs. They can relax knowing that their children are given the opportunity to interact with other children of similar ages and different abilities in a fun, supervised setting!
- Are you tired of spending hours running around the mall trying to locate the perfect gifts for your friends and family? Keep it simple this year and make a charitable donation to the Watson Institute in their honor! You can feel satisfied knowing that your contribution will help students with special needs in their family and you don’t even have to leave your house!
- Don’t forget to ask if your employer has a matching gift program! Some companies will offer a matching gift program in which they will match an employee’s gift to a charitable organization dollar for dollar. This is a great way to maximize your charitable contribution!
