“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” — Mahatma Gandhi

Who knew there were so many ways to support ADEC?

We invite our community to share in our mission of providing choice and possibility to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. There are endless ways to support ADEC beyond making a donation — from helping wrap Christmas gifts for individuals with no family to running the Color Our World 5K in May.


Give the gift of choice and possibility.


Sponsor ADEC

When you support ADEC through a corporate sponsorship, you support choice and possibility for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Get your brand in front of a new audience, increase your company’s reputation and have a great time while you’re at it (our events are always a blast)!

A few perks of sponsorship include:

  • Company logo displayed on electronic sign on S.R. 120, which is passed by 9,400 cars each day

  • Company logo printed on back of participant T-shirts

  • Spoken recognition of company during event


Volunteer with ADEC

Change the life of the individuals we serve while enriching your own. Our volunteers come to ADEC with the goal of helping, but often leave with new friendships. By spending time with the people we serve, you are widening their spheres of influence and improving their quality of life.

Just a few ways you can volunteer with ADEC:

  • Gather a group and challenge our Silver Bullets basketball team to a game.

  • Spend time in our day service locations helping the individuals we serve participate in vocational activities like painting or baking.

  • Spend some time wrapping Christmas gifts (donated through our Wish List program) so the people we serve will always wake up with something under the tree on Dec. 25.


Attend an ADEC event

Fundraisers, movie screenings, galas — ADEC does it all. ADEC organizes several events each year open to members of the public. When you come out to an ADEC event, you get to spend time with the people we serve and learn about our mission. It is a guaranteed good time.

Examples of events include:

  • Cupcake Wars

  • Ride-A-Bike and Color Our World 5K

  • ADEC’s Annual Celebration
