The Campbell Center (formerly GAR) announced that it was the recipient of a recent major gift of $500,000 from a benefactor whose family designated the agency to be the beneficiary of a portion of their estate. The gift has been earmarked for operating costs per the wishes of the donors, a couple with ties to developmental disabilities. The wife was a special education teacher with the Glendale Unified School District.
“We are deeply grateful to generous donors who recognize the importance of our mission and the work we at TCC are doing to enhance the independence of our clients,” said Eric Hamilton, president of The Campbell Center board. “Planned gifts such as this are crucial to organizations like TCC as they allow us to ensure that our programs and services remain available to our clients throughout the years.”
The Campbell Center has been an integral part of the Glendale community for the past 60 years, a role model for others within the developmental disabilities service arena. On a daily basis, TCC serves nearly 85 clients – empowering them through its various programs whether vocational training, residential services or supported employment.
As a nonprofit, The Campbell Center relies not only on individual donors but also on foundation and corporate grants whose giving guidelines align with the mission of the organization.
