Donation Opportunities

Village Funding

Independence Village Funding

Independence Village relies on private support through grants, individual and corporate donations and charitable foundations. These gifts allow us to continue our mission of helping our residents find their VOICE, and empowers opportunities to learn, work, connect.

Independence Village receives no government funding in its mission of providing affordable lifetime care to residents with mental and physical disabilities. We receive support from a dedicated group of businesses, in kind donations and proceeds from our fund raising activities.


Your donations help keep our housing cost lower by covering the gap between what it cost to live at Independence Village and the amount each resident is required to pay.

There are many ways to support Independence Village and welcome and need your time and resources.

  • Gift Donation

  • Donation to the Independence Village Endowment fund

  • Capital Improvements funding

  • Memorial / Honorary Giving

  • In Kind Donations

  • Annual Gala
