Government funding covers only 77% of the cost for Ray Graham Association to support people with disabilities. Each year, with the support of community leaders like you, we raise 1.8 million dollars. 87% of every dollar donated gives people the chance to make every day enjoyable and meaningful. Participating in our special events is a fun and social way to support an array of services that cater to people with disabilities individual needs, strengths, and dreams. Are you more of a hands-on person? Volunteers are always welcome for any event. If you’re interested in volunteering or have a question, email Donor Data Manager & Strategist Maddie Loper.
