We honor the ties...

We honor the ties that unite generations… how appropriate that we have chosen this as our theme for the 2019-20 Annual Giving Campaign. As camp opened this summer, We reflect on the fact that our first camp started 48 years ago and that in December we will begin our 50th Anniversary year. So much has changed and so much has stayed the same.

 

  • Annual Giving remains critically important. Over the years this campaign has raised funds that ensure quality; starting with our founding members contributing $5 each. We definitely have made a difference!

 

  • Focus remains on family and community. We now include those in our work force and SPIN Associates as members of our extended family and all are an important part of our history and our mission!

 

  • Our philosophy remains centered on the fact that every person deserves to achieve their fullest potential and we continue to value, respect and include everyone!

 

  • What has changed is the number of people we support and the evolution of opportunities and possibilities. Still our vision remains, “A world that values everyone”!

 

We are proud to be a part of this journey and ask that you join us. Please consider becoming a member today so that the next generation will see your name as part of our rich history.

Annual Membership

SPIN Membership is a decades-old tradition of charitable giving, inspired by our founders. The first members of SPIN were hardworking parents and teachers who pooled their resources to establish the organization’s first summer camp. SPIN members support critical services and facilities that are not completely covered by our funders:

 

  • Playparks where children can learn and grow
  • Home modifications that allow adults with disability to age with dignity in their communities
  • Self-care and celebration nights for families of children with autism
  • Career-preparation for teens with autism and intellectual disability
  • Summer camp scholarships for families in financial need

 

Memberships also come with a few perks:

Membership is more than an annual gift. Membership connects you a community of people who believe that people of all abilities deserve to live a life of possibilities.
