Why Donate to Clifford Beers?

ANNE: “I give to Clifford Beers because they consistently improve the lives of the children receiving treatment. The benefits of this treatment positively affect their families and the surrounding communities, bringing hope for a brighter future for all involved!” – Donor since 2007

ANDIE: “I have been both a fan and financial supporter of the work of Clifford Beers for many years.  Not only do I continue to be impressed with the vision work of its professional leadership and board of directors, but also the institution is somewhat unique in its ability to appropriately reinvent itself to keep pace with the changing  and challenging times.  When it comes to the wellbeing of children and their families, Clifford Beers has few peers.” – Donor since 2003

TOM: “For my wife and me, it is vital that the great work that Clifford Beers has been doing for more than a hundred years continue for at least another hundred years.  That’s why our decision to remember Clifford Beers in our will was an easy one.  We want part of our legacy to be the ongoing support of Clifford Beers for generations to come.” – Donor since 1999

ROCHELLE: “I am a long-time donor to Clifford Beers.  I give because I believe strongly in our mission of enabling children, families and communities to flourish and achieve their potential. I give because I know that Clifford Beers will accomplish that mission by providing innovative, impactful and compassionate services. And finally, I give because Clifford Beers is a cost effective, efficient steward of our resources, so I am confident that each dollar I give will do the most good for the most people.” – Donor since 2010

BARBARA: “As the former Director of Development for over 15 years at Clifford Beers, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with the children and parents and grandparents who were seen at the Clinic. I heard their often complicated and traumatic stories.   After all these years I can still see their faces. I also witnessed the commitment, expertise, and caring of the dedicated staff. Their job was mentally and physically exhausting with work that went way beyond the boundaries of 9-5. My husband and I continue to put Clifford Beers at the top of our philanthropic priorities because we believe that early intervention greatly enhances a child’s potential for a happy and productive future. What could be more worthy than that?” – Donor since 1998

 

It has come to our attention that scams are happening frequently on Facebook concerning nonprofit grants and impersonation of friends. Please be assured that Clifford Beers NEVER requests funds in exchange for grants in any shape or form, ever. Thank you!
