HELP FOR TODAY – HOPE FOR TOMORROW CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Thanks to continuous growth in each of Annandale’s first four decades, many significant milestones have been achieved in serving individuals with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. Through the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporate contributors, our services have grown exponentially, allowing us to provide a comprehensive range of programs designed to improve the quality of life of each individual served, according to his or her own unique needs and abilities.
Today, Annandale Village has become an award-winning, nationally recognized leader among nonprofit organizations, and is the only nonprofit in the state of Georgia to offer men and women with developmental disabilities a continuum of service and care. Annandale is proud of how far we have come. Yet, the courage to dream big and the need to do more for those we currently serve and for those who will soon seek our assistance has made this an exciting time in the life of our organization.
The number of individuals diagnosed with a developmental disability is growing at an alarming rate. In Georgia, the disability population has nearly doubled in the last decade and is growing at a much faster rate than the population of Georgia as a whole. This potential demand for services has required Annandale to embark on a year-long organizational analysis to pursue a plan that will help achieve our vision and mission effectively, efficiently and with the utmost care and compassion.
To reach a new level of recognized excellence, the Board of Trustees of Annandale Village has launched the Help for Today – Hope for Tomorrow major gifts campaign – the first such effort in its rich history. Through this broad-based major gifts initiative, Annandale is seeking gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations over a three-year period to raise $2.1 million to meet the challenges and opportunities of our next forty years of service, and to increase our capacity to serve the ever-expanding disability population.
The enhancements we envision are straightforward, but their effects will be profound. In summary, the objectives of this broad-based major gifts initiative include:
Expand Capacity to Serve Aging Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Completely renovate and expand the existing Laura Grier Center for Special Care which would effectively double the number of individuals we are currently capable of serving at the nationally recognized D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing. In addition, Annandale will construct a new, one-story assisted living center to meet the needs of individuals experiencing a decrease in independent living skills due to aging and/or characteristics of their disability.
Enhance Program Opportunities for Non-Residential Clients
Renovate the existing Jackson Day House to accommodate safety issues, ensure structural integrity and functionality, abate water damage, and to provide new spaces for expanded offerings in vocational and daily living skills trainings.
Improve Campus-Wide Technology Infrastructure and Systems
Invest in a campus-wide technology improvement plan, allowing Annandale to significantly upgrade its technology infrastructure and systems to more effectively and efficiently serve the needs of its clients.
Increase Endowment Tuition Assistance Fund
Increase the Fee Assistance Fund to provide programs and services to individuals and families that may not have the financial means and/or would have little to no access to necessary services.
