How to Help


After the Thanksgiving holiday, there’s Black Friday. There’s Cyber Monday. And now…there’s Giving Tuesday.

In its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. It’s a day to bring communities together with one common purpose to celebrate generosity and to give. #GivingTuesday is fueled by the power of social media but more importantly it harnesses the generosity of people around the world to bring change to their communities with donations of time, resources, and talent.

Prospectus Berco is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities by providing services that promote dignity and respect. All people have value, and everyone can make a contribution to their community.

Help us fulfill our mission by making a donation to #GivingTuesday today to Prospectus Berco by clicking the DONATE button below.

Feel free to join us for a #GivingTuesday Pop In Event on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Adult Training Annex located at 1800 Kutztown Road, Reading. Slapshot will be making an appearance from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for pictures and autographs.

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, or click here to download an order form.


Prospectus Berco is dedicated to inspiring people with disabilities or other special needs to lead meaningful lives by providing innovative services that promote dignity and respect.

Berks County is filled with caring and compassionate individuals who want to support and uplift those who need help.  How a community treats individuals who face obstacles in their lives and have difficulty with day to day activities is a reflection of the people who live there.

Giving of ourselves, our time, and our resources is a personal decision. Our reasons to give to a non-profit organization may be because we believe in the organization; are passionate about the service they provide; or know that our help is needed in order for the agency to achieve its mission.

All of us strive to lead meaningful lives with purpose and dignity.  The individuals at Prospectus Berco with whom we have the privilege of working face more obstacles than most of us will ever know.  With your help and support, they can lead meaningful lives that promote dignity and respect.
