2023 Fundraising Appeal

We strive to make a difference in the lives of bright individuals that need social interaction support as they transition to greater independence.  COVID-19 still has an impact on the way we provide services now in 2023. We are committed to keeping our members safe while also continuing to help them achieve their goals. 

Since moving to our new location at 45 White Caps Lane in early 2021, we have been able to successfully raise funds to accomplish some of our substantial needs.  The following items have been completed thanks to very generous supporters and donors: build a storage facility to store program supplies; replacement windows on the entire building; tree trimming and landscaping of overgrown bushes; as well as creating additional parking space for program transportation vans. 

 

Our priority this year is the immediate need to replace all three of our 12 passenger vans.  Transportation regulations require vans to be no more than 5 years old and our vans are hitting that mark. New vans can cost $55,000 + so we need to begin replacing one at a time starting now. Without our vans we are not able to transport our members to and from their homes and out in the community where we spend a vast majority of our time.

 

Most of Moving Forward’s revenue comes from contracts with state agencies including Medicaid and Greater Attleboro Regional Transit Authority.  Special items and enhancements to our space are funded through fundraising activities like the Falmouth Road Race and clothing drives, and donations from kind and generous people within our community.

 

Please consider donating to Moving Forward Inc. Donations of any size have a HUGE impact to a small non-profit like Moving Forward, Inc. Your donations go directly to supporting our members as they involve themselves in a variety of activities to achieve their individual goals.   The whole world was impacted by COVID making these past several years full of challenges, but with the help of our members, staff, and community we are moving forward towards a bright future!

Having perseverance is all about being able to bounce back and keep moving forward. Jason Scotts,
