The work we do at ADEC would not be possible without the support of Everyday Heroes like you.

Although ADEC receives money from Medicaid for some of the services we provide, that funding covers only the very basics. The rest — the things that bring fun and meaning into the lives of the people we serve — is only possible through donations and the support of our community.

By starting a fundraiser for ADEC, you are not only helping provide the financial support necessary to maintain our programming, but you are also helping spread the word about the incredible people we serve at ADEC.

We are excited to offer a new fundraising platform called Everyday Hero that helps ADEC reach new supporters. The program allows you to create fundraisers for important events in life — like your first 5K or your 25th wedding anniversary — or just because you really believe in the work we do.

Have a question about Everyday Hero or how you can help ADEC? Reach out to us at or call 574-848-7451.

Athletic fundraiser

Whether you’re training for your first marathon or taking your bike out for a leisurely spin, go the extra mile for ADEC.
