Restoring ECHO to Financial Health

ECHO NEEDS YOUR HELP…TO HELP THOSE MOST IN NEED.

The number of participants in our programs has been reduced dramatically as a result of the COVID – 19 crisis. ECHO’s funding has been negatively impacted due to billing reimbursements which are based solely upon headcount.

When the scare of the virus is gone the community needs to have ECHO there to continue its important work.

WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU

The suggested contribution levels on the right are merely recommendations. Feel free to donate as much as you can.

Timing is critical, so please don’t delay.

ECHO’s mission is to empower individuals with disabilities to achieve their optimal level of personal, social and economic success.  We provide skill building, job placement, day support and transportation. Contributions to ECHO make it possible to transform lives in our community.  Our Board of Directors, staff, and program participants sincerely appreciate your kindness.

Your generous support funds projects in six important areas:
– Group Supported Employment
– Individual Supported Employment
– Vocational Training (including the ECHO Academy and Assessment Center)
– Community Integration
– Medically Fragile
– Transportation

Other Ways to Give:

Bequest

An excellent way to support ECHO is to leave us a bequest in your will, living trust or with a codicil. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows the donor to continue to use the property being left to charity during their life. Another benefit is that the donor is able to leave a lasting legacy. Below is some basic language to use; it is probably best to speak with an attorney:

Bequest of a Specific Dollar Amount

I hereby give, devise and bequeath _________ dollars to ECHO, a nonprofit organization located at 71 Lawson Road SE Leesburg, VA 20175, Federal Tax ID #540972486, for ECHO’s general use and purpose.

Percentage Bequest

I hereby give, devise and bequeath ____ percent (___%) of my total estate, determined as of the date of my death, to ECHO, a nonprofit organization located at 71 Lawson Road SE Leesburg, VA 20175, Federal Tax ID #540972486, for ECHO’s general use and purpose.
