Your gift can help us Close the Gap!

The Phoenix Residence Inc. is heavily dependent on government funding and those funds have continued to diminish – yet our needs continue to rise! The PRI Board of Directors has launched the  Close the Gap campaign this year – an effort to raise $150,000 a year to assure that we are able to maintain quality, skilled, and caring direct support professionals to work with the 300 individuals in PRI’s programs today.

We need your help now! Will you join us by making a gift today so we can Close the Gap and continue to provide the high-quality, caring services that are needed? Click here for more information about the issues we face.

General Donations

The Phoenix Residence always welcomes donations. You can use our online donation form or printable donation form below. If you donate online, make sure you specify the fund type as Close the Gap.

On behalf of our Direct Support Professionals and those they serve, thank you for your gift of support!

Fundraising for The Phoenix Residence

Fundraise on Facebook 

Social media is everywhere these days, so why not use it to help us with our fundraising? That’s just what family member, Liz McCambridge, was inspired to do! Liz, whose three sisters live at Furness House, built a fundraising page on Facebook, and then shared that page with her friends and family. This method was very effective for her, as she brought in $875 from 27 people on Facebook.

Want to set up your own Facebook fundraiser? Here are more detailed instructions to do this yourself!

Build a Fundraising Website

Help us Close the Gap and provide our valuable direct support professionals the wages they deserve! You can now do so by fundraising for The Phoenix Residence on our behalf. It's easy to get started! Visit our new peer-to-peer fundraising site where you can build your own page where you can gather donations from your friends and family. We've included introductory information/photo on the page to get you started, but our hope is you will customize the page with your own photo and story of why you are getting involved and what The Phoenix Residence means to you. Then, share the link to your page with family and friends through email, social media, word-of-mouth, etc.
