Ways to Give

At Ability Partners, we not only believe in the talents and the abilities of every person, we work each and every day to instill that belief in the children and the adults who receive education, clinical therapies, and other support services through our agencies. Just as the needs of individuals change, CP Rochester, Happiness House, and Rochester Rehabilitation services are individually tailored to meet the changing needs of children and adults with and without disabilities, and their families. From birth through adulthood, our programs and services offer an accessible, comprehensive, and expert resource for families throughout Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.

​Every member of the Ability Partners Foundation family has the power to make future change possible. Together, we continue to ensure the long-term sustainability of programs and services for the more than 6,800 individuals served each year by our agencies.

Planned Giving

A planned gift is an irrevocable or revocable gift; a creative way to give, using different types of assets; a way for donors to make gifts to an organization and receive financial benefits; a way for donors to make larger gifts than they thought possible, and for some donors the only way to make a major gift; a way to help donors achieve philanthropic and financial objectives; and a way to offer substantial assistance to one's charity of choice. There are major tax savings also associated with planned giving.
