Why Give

With so many organizations asking for money, it can be hard to decide who to support. With your donation to Little City, we are able to support individuals like Kevin.

When Kevin started at Little City, he was not a great listener. At basketball practice, there was always a lot of pushback. But then nine years ago, Kevin started powerlifting and he shifted. The sport helped him be focused and be comfortable in his own skin.
Today, Kevin is one of the best Special Olympics powerlifters in Illinois. He also has a job at Lou Malanatis.

Because of the support of our donors, we were able to help Kevin create a purposeful life through sports and other programs, so Kevin could thrive.

LEAVING A LEGACY GIFT DOESN’T REQUIRE GREAT WEALTH

All it takes is your desire to provide support for future generations of individuals with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. This can be accomplished through provisions you make from your own estate plans. While you should consult your attorney and/or financial consultant, your options include:

  • Naming Little City as a beneficiary of a specific dollar amount or remaining portion of your estate.
  • Contacting your life insurance company to add Little City as a beneficiary to your life insurance proceeds.
  • Contacting your provider of your IRA, 401K or other qualified retirement accounts to name Little City as a beneficiary to any savings accounts or CDs.

Please contact jdrew@littlecity.org for more information or to start giving today.
