Building Lasting Relationships

Making Special Recreation Available to ALL Families!

Partner with us! We believe in building lasting relationships in our communities that will further the WDSRA mission, benefit our participants and create long term relationships.

Keeping programs affordable and accessible is our commitment. Because of the labor intensive nature of our programs, the constant fluctuation of part-time staff needs, and rising costs overall, we continually need to bridge the gap between the cost of programming and the support received through tax revenues. Support by the WDSRA Foundation allows WDSRA to keep the cost of services low while sustaining the high quality programming.

WDSRA Foundation Funding

  • Funding from the WDSRA Foundation comes from the generosity of grantors, sponsors, donors, partners and YOU.
  • Support comes in many forms including donations, grants, sponsorships, event participation, volunteer efforts, and more.
  • Support assists with scholarships, vehicle purchases, program supplies, inclusion services, special projects, and more.
  • Proceeds from fundraising events hosted by the WDSRA Foundation benefit WDSRA.
