Your generosity has the power to change the way the world defines and views disabilities.

For more than 100 years, legacies and bequests have played an important part in funding many of the Easterseals’ programs that give people with disabilities, families, and communities access to quality education, employment, and health care.

There are many ways you can ensure your philanthropic wishes become a reality. Use this website to learn more about how you can be an agent of change for people with disabilities.

You can give Easterseals’ and families a brighter future by including Easterseals in your will. One of the simplest and most popular ways to empower people with disabilities is to leave a gift to Easterseals in your will or trust.
