We live in a time when so many worthwhile agencies are doing more with less. Despite the financial crunch that many of us are facing, PEP provides an invaluable and diverse range of supports to hundreds of individuals living with disabilities and their families every year.
PEP receives about 70% of its funding from federal, state, and local government sources, provided through legislated mandates for support. The remaining 30% of PEP’s revenue is raised from earned income, grants from foundations, and donations from individuals. We could not accomplish what we do without the generous support of our donors and partners.
Giving a little each month adds up big for our clients! You can arrange to have your contribution broken down into smaller increments over a period of a year by arranging for a monthly recurring gift.
United Way: In addition to donating to PEP online, you can donate through the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and designate it directly to PEP by using code #1683.
Matching Gift or Payroll Deduction: Please check with your employer about their matching gift or payroll deduction options. These can provide an easy way for you to increase your support of PEP’s mission.
Any amount of financial support is appreciated. For more information about PEP’s impact on our consumers or to support our mission, please contact Michael Domer at 215-952-4266 or Michael.Domer@pepservices.org.
Every year our development department sends out invitations asking businesses to become a sponsor for several of our fundraising events. This year, we’re offering local businesses a sponsorship opportunity that will last the entire year!
As a annual sponsor, over the next year, PEP will identify interested companies to the community as avid supporters of people living with disabilities with eye-catching marketing and publicity to 57,000 households four times a year, and with over a thousand participants at multiple fundraising events. In addition business sponsors will be able to use, free of charge, PEP Bowl our boutique, six lane bowling center for a company event or family outing, and receive tickets to attend all of our fundraising events!!
