Imagine! recently received a $5,500 grant from the UPS Foundation, which drives global corporate citizenship and philanthropic programs for UPS.
The grant will be used for several purposes:
- To purchase a barrier free lift for one of Imagine!’s homes
- To purchase a new dining room table for Imagine!’s Foothills home
- Grills for Imagine!’s Santa Fe home and Charles Family SmartHome
- A new chair for Imagine!'s Garden Place home
Established in 1951 and based in Atlanta, GA., The UPS Foundation identifies specific areas where its backing clearly impacts social issues. In support of this strategic approach, The UPS Foundation has identified the following focus areas for giving: volunteerism, diversity, community safety, and the environment.
In 2014, UPS and its employees, active and retired, invested more than $104.2 million in charitable giving around the world.
“The UPS Foundation is honored to support the Imagine! Foundation’s efforts to support individuals with intellectual disabilities,” said Eduardo Martinez, president of the UPS Foundation. “Our goal is to fund powerful programs that make a lasting difference to the global community.”
We greatly appreciate their support.
