Your gift empowers our neighbors with disabilities right here in Minnesota.

Thousands of families in Minnesota have members with an intellectual or developmental disability, and a large majority of them say they’re very concerned about providing a lifetime of care for their dependents with special needs.

With the generous support of our donors and partners across the state, AbleLight is transforming the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities every day.

Your donation to AbleLight provides life-changing services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities: safe and loving homes, opportunities for community connections, employment coaching, education opportunities, and so much more.

Your gift matters

A gift today can transform the lives of people with developmental disabilities in some of these powerful and meaningful ways:

  1. An individual is welcomed into a new safe and loving home and doesn’t risk homelessness or living in an unsafe environment
  2. Quality care is delivered by a care professional to support an individual with complex needs
  3. An individual gets the assistive technology device they need to independently manage their medications and improve their quality of life

Join us in making a difference in the lives of Minnesotans with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Please donate today. 

About Give to the Max Day

Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.

That spark touched off an outpouring of generosity— $14 million in 24 hours. Since then, Give to the Max Day has become Minnesota’s annual giving holiday, raising more than $250 million in its first 13 years. Every year, thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.
