We strive to meet the highest standards in the services we provide, in our internal policies and procedures, in our financial stewardship, and in our commitment to ethical behavior in all areas. We value the trust our donors and supporters place in us and work hard to ensure that your gifts are used in the best way possible to further our mission of providing innovative, inclusive services to children and adults with disabilities.
Sherwood Community Services endorses the Donor Bill of Rights as created by the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

There are many ways to help out, from one-time gifts, to ongoing donations through payroll deduction, to estate planning. Some companies have matching gift programs that will increase or double the value of your gift. We also have several fundraising events throughout the year, from a bowl-a-thon, to an elegant multi-course dinner, to our annual auction.
Individual and corporate gifts are crucial to the success and long-term survival of Sherwood's services. Thank you for your support!
