We rely on generous gifts from individuals, as well as foundation grants and public sector funds to serve Minnesotans who are blind, visually impaired or have a print-related disability.
For the blind and visually impaired, our services are nothing short of life-changing. They help people be more independent, to continue their education, and to be a fully connected part of their communities.
How Can I Contribute my Financial Support?
We've established a special fund at The Saint Paul Foundation to accept your tax deductible contributions.
Some employers have a matching gift program that will double or even triple your contribution. Your company’s human resource department may have such a program. If so, it’s an easy way for you to increase the impact of you contribution.
Tribute gifts include commemorative and memorial gifts. Both provide a meaningful opportunity honor significant people in your life. Commemorative and memorial gifts can be given in honor of a family member, friend or organization.
When you give a commemorative gift, those you have chosen to honor will receive a letter notifying them of your gift. The amount is only disclosed at your request.
Memorial gifts honor a lost loved one. When you give a gift in memory of someone, the family of the deceased receives a letter notifying them of your gift. The amount is only disclosed at your request.
Many people have joined our Legacy Society and included the Communication Center in their estate plans through a will, life income arrangement, trust or other means.
The society was established in honor of the Hamm family, whose initial gift helped start the Communication Center in 1953 and whose ongoing generosity continues to be instrumental to our success.
Gift planning is a simple process that involves four important initial steps:
Sponsorship of Minnesota Radio Talking Book (RTB) programming provides a unique and valuable opportunity to reach 9,000 blind, visually impaired, physically disabled or learning disabled Minnesotans.
Sponsors support programming that informs, engages and inspires while at the same time extending their corporate messaging and build loyalty among thousands of listeners.
It's easy to donate to the Communication Center.
