Are you looking for a way to make an impact in your community?

Do you want to learn more about how special recreation changes lives?

Can you find 60 minutes sometime in the next 4 months?

If you answered YES to any of these three questions, we want you to join us at an upcoming Impact Meeting.


The BIG picture:
The Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) Foundation is the fundraising arm of the WDSRA. Making sustainable giving and major gifts the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts is the BIG way we change the lives of participants and families. In order to make that possible, we are seeking meaningful relationships with donors.

60 Minute Impact Meeting:
At an Impact Meeting, you will hear directly from families (either in person or through audio/video) about how special recreation can change lives. You will also learn the impact WDSRA programs and services are having on participants and their families everyday. Finally, key members of our team will share a little more about the future of WDSRA. The meeting will last no longer than one hour and you will not be asked for a donation.
