Giving Season Is Now Open!


It's official. Giving season is now open. As you make your donation decisions, we want to make sure you have plenty of ammunition for your most successful and satisfying philanthropy.

Here are some interesting statistics about nonprofits in general:

  • 46% of most organizations' donations come in November
  • 31% of them come in December

For every three donors, one will do research before making their giving decision. So why consider including DakotAbilities in your year-end giving?

  • 100% of every dollar donated to DakotAbilities directly benefits the people supported
  • Your gift helps individuals be as independent as possible
  • Your gift helps us offer activities that give lives greater meaning and lets them have experiences they thought were impossible
  • Your gift triggers creativity from art to music to theater
  • Your gift provides assistive and adaptive devices

In short, your gift touches (and changes) the lives of real people. In return, you get good neighbors, better community members, and great smiles.


At DakotAbilities, we too give.
And then we give some more.

We just wrapped up our United Way employee campaign for 2021. Our goal was to raise $8,500 but ended up raising $10,711! That is more than double what we raised last year. Achieving that milestone includes sixteen people who are now Rising Heart/Heart Club members. The week was filled with fun activities for all staff including a chili and soup cook-off.

Our monthly donors are called Behind the Cape members. It is open to anyone who likes to give automatically to support the people we serve. We put out an invitation to staff to join and received six new members! We now have a total of 25 Behind the Cape members. Join us! Just click on the Behind the Cape logo for more information.


Want to jump the gun (so to speak?)

If you already know that you are going to support the people served by DakotAbilities this year, go ahead and make your commitment now by clicking on the DONATE button.



Thank you! We hope your own Giving Season is successful and that your generosity brings joy and fulfills needs in your community!
