Al Sigl Community of Agencies is pleased to announce a $3 million gift from B. Thomas Golisano and the Golisano Foundation, the largest the organization has ever received from a living donor.
Funds will help modernize and renovate Al Sigl’s campus on Elmwood Avenue. Of the gift, Golisano said, "The Al Sigl Celebrating Abilities Campaign signals an exciting new era in service delivery for people with disabilities. I’m particularly impressed with the openness of the proposed facility renovation and the spirit of inclusion that will benefit generations. I am pleased to provide financial support for this extraordinary project, which will have an immediate, positive impact on people with developmental disabilities and their families.”
The commitment from the Golisano Foundation is part of the Celebrating Abilities Campaign, which has raised $21.2 million on a goal of $26.8 million. The Campaign was launched to renovate and expand existing facilities for new services, invest in infrastructure and adaptive technologies, and provide program equipment and vehicles.
By focusing on facilities, technology, and infrastructure, Campaign funds help Al Sigl continue to empower our six Member Agencies to focus their energies on what matters most: serving people with disabilities® and special needs.
Imagine a community where everyone of every ability participates fully—where there are no physical or social barriers to community life in public spaces, transportation and housing. The Al Sigl Community of Agencies has a golden opportunity to lead the way in advancing the inclusion of people of all abilities in every aspect of community life—to share their gifts and embrace the gifts of others.
Please join us as we imagine a future that includes us all. Together, we will take the bold steps to invest in creating a better life for the thousands of people and families who count on the Al Sigl Community of Agencies today...and tomorrow.
