Thank you for helping achieve our mission
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 PAES Lab)
– Community Integration
– Medically Fragile
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.
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.
