The GreatGive® 2021

SARAH Inc. is taking a part of this year’s GreatGive® to help raise funds for children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities or delays. This is your opportunity to truly make a difference and play a personal role in SARAH Inc.’s mission to Enhance Skills and Transform Lives of All Individuals with Differing Abilities

There are only


until The Great Give® 2021 begins!

We can all agree that our lives have been unexpectedly changed by the pandemic. As we continue to adjust and safely phase back into offering our services in person, support from our community matters more than ever before. This year has highlighted the necessity for nonprofits and the positive impact they create for those they serve. While we can lean on one another for support during difficult times, your support can make a difference in the amount of people we can help and attaining the resources required to do so. 

The Great Give® is a 36-hour online giving event put together by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. The goal of this event is to strengthen and support local nonprofits operating in the Greater New Haven area. This is your opportunity to contribute to the success and advancement of participating nonprofits. 

The Great Give® begins on May 4th, 2021 at 8:00am and ends on May 5th, 2021 at 8:00pm. Advanced gifts an be given at any time up until the event. (Note: Advanced gifts do not count towards hourly prize incentives that will take place during The Great Give®).
