Donation from long-time supporter an increase from last year
Road to Responsibility (RTR; http://roadtoresponsibility.org), one of the region’s largest and most successful nonprofit organizations supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is pleased to announce it has received a $25,000 grant from the Pilgrim Bank Foundation (https://www.pilgrimbankfoundation.org/), directed to general operating support.
This donation is an increase from the foundation’s gift of $20,000 received in 2020. Pilgrim Bank Foundation has been a longstanding supporter of the mission of Road to Responsibility, having also served as a consistent sponsor for the annual Making Lives Better Gala.
The mission of the Pilgrim Bank Foundation is to provide financial support to charitable and community service organizations in the communities throughout the South Shore and South Coast of Massachusetts. The foundation is dedicated to community activities and promotion of charitable causes.
“Pilgrim Bank’s increased commitment to Road to Responsibility, and in support of general operations, is so extremely helpful,” said Christopher White, Ed. D., CEO of Road to Responsibility. “Throughout the last 13 months, we have kept the health and safety of our staff and individuals as the highest priority. To do so included a variety of unanticipated expenses for additional PPE and cleaning supplies, among other items. Having this infusion of financial support to sustain these efforts – and keep other operating procedures running smoothly – lets us keep our focus on the individuals we serve.
“We extend our sincerest gratitude to Pilgrim Bank Foundation,” White added.
About Road To Responsibility, Inc.
Celebrating over 30 years of making lives better, Road to Responsibility, Inc. (RTR) was established in 1988 with the overarching belief that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserve to have full, rich, and rewarding lives in the community, and therefore works to provide the means, the opportunity, and the support necessary to allow citizens with disabilities to take their place as productive members of the community. RTR offers residential, work/employment, day habilitation and other day supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. RTR supports individuals with very diverse needs, including those with significant challenges who would otherwise go unserved if not for RTR. It succeeds where other organizations often fail, through the use of an integrated clinical behavioral approach. This model has proven successful and yielded positive results for the organization and the individuals served.
