Collaborating with Local Business

Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities welcomes the support and collaboration of local businesses. This can take several forms:

Emergency Funds: When an adult or a family has an emergency, Quality Trust supports people on a case by case basis. These problems can arise and Quality Trust wants to solve issues fast! These include:

  • Money to keep utilities going,
  • Equipment like glasses or adaptive equipment
  • Emergency transportation to doctors or hospitals

Sponsorship Opportunities:  Quality Trust is a thought leader on a variety of topics in the disability arena and we strive to share this knowledge with the community and professionals so people with disabilities can benefit from best practices being shared widely.   We seek sponsors for our learning events, webinars, annual meetings and other events and activities that serve to inform and educate parents, disability professionals, self-advocates, attorneys and others.

Family Holiday Celebration Volunteers and gifts: Thanksgiving and Christmas are a time of need and tradition. Many of our families do not have the funds for holiday meals, toys, presents or celebrations. During the holidays, Quality Trust collects funds and non-perishable food to distribute to families.  For the December holidays, Quality Trust provides winter clothing, toys and gifts for families that would not receive gifts otherwise.  Some items we need:

  • Store gift cards
  • Fresh canned goods
  • Money for prepared meals
  • Volunteers to distribute meals
  • Winter clothing, gloves, hats and socks
  • Lots of toys for kids – the very young and teens

There’s More!  Company internal fundraising drives – company matching gifts for individual contributions – United Way (9339) and Combined Federal Campaign designations (33317) or fairs – opportunities for jobs and internships for one of our members.

In-kind items:  Quality Trust hosts an annual “Cruisin’ for a Cause” event in July aboard the Odyssey Cruise line and we have a silent auction as part of the event.  We can use in-kind items such as certificates for services, dinner at area restaurants and hotels, limo service, weekend stays at area get-aways, artwork, jewelry and more.

Your experience and talent in finance, marketing, development, and in-kind contributions are always needed for Quality Trust.  For these and other ideas – please email Phyllis Holton or call 202-448-1458 (direct).
