Campaign Dates:  November 2018 to June 30, 2019                 

At Prospectus Berco we are proud to announce that the individuals in our programs are part of the Berks County community and contribute and add value to all of our lives.  This November we are mailing out appeal cards for the 2019 Annual Fund.  Continuing with the theme of We Are Part of Our Community, we feature some photos of program participants working, volunteering, and recreating in society.

Programming requirements from Federal and State mandates have transitioned to an employment first and community participation model.  Opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities to experience community participation and to receive employment readiness training, job placement supports and on-the-job support services need to expand.  The new mandate, however, brings added responsibility with the need for more advocacy, staff, supplies, transportation, and opportunities to comply.

Designated restricted funds include the Helping Hand Fund to meet unmet financial needs of program participants, the Laura Isenberg Educational Enrichment Fund which offsets tuition costs for employees pursuing additional educational opportunities, and the Endowment Fund to guarantee the future of Prospectus Berco.  A donor can also elect to specify your donation for a specific program or purchase of your choice.

Please support program participants with your 2019 Annual Fund Campaign donation now by clicking on the DONATE button today as we welcome everyone into our community and allow all people to live the life of their choice as they are surrounded by friends, family, and neighbors.

Make a Difference – Tell your friends! Please take a moment to visit our social media profiles, like or follow us, and share our messages. The more people we reach, the more we can inspire and help.  Thank you to all of our past, present, and future supporters. The annual appeal card is mailed in November.  If you do not receive your appeal card and prefer not to make an online donation, call Sue Stalnecker at 610.372.4637, x 103 or email sstalnecker@prospectusberco.org.

We accept online donations to make it easy and convenient for our donors who prefer to work through the Internet.

Memorial/Honorarium Leaves

In the foyer of our Main Entrance, we built a Memorial/Honorarium Wall with engraved bricks and a serene mural painted by artist Michael Miller.  Our bricks are filled, but with the skill of Hilltop Studios, we are creating clay leaves which can be engraved and glazed to place at various locations on the wall.  The oak leaves are from our property and have space for two or three lines with a maximum of 20 characters per line.  While the minimum cost of a memorial or honorarium leaf is $100, charitable donations in excess of that amount are gratefully accepted.

If interested in a leaf, please contact Sue Stalnecker at 610.372.4637, ext. 103 or sstalnecker@prospectusberco.org, or click here to download an order form.
