Leave a Legacy That Will Serve People with Disabilities in Perpetuity.

Verland was established through the love and compassion of its three founders and the generosity of one individual who was inspired to share her good fortune with others by donating the land on which Verland’s Ohio Township campus was built. The generosity and concern of these individuals has expanded the horizons and life possibilities for countless individuals with intellectual disabilities for more than 40 years.

Today, Verland encourages legacy gifts that will help to ensure the continuation of our life-enhancing programs. In supporting Verland, your gift can be earmarked to benefit specific program areas or can be allocated, at the discretion of our Board of Directors and senior management, to address pressing needs.

Verland’s person-centered mission offers an ideal means of ensuring that your loved one and/or other deserving individuals in your community will continue to receive services as long as they are needed. Material donations to Verland can come in the form of cash, 

bequests, planned gifts, appreciated stock, personal property, insurance policies, commercial property, automobiles, and other assets of value.

All donations are gratefully accepted, and most planned gifts carry significant  tax  benefits.  These planned gifts are structured to benefit the donor and his/her family members, as well as Verland.  Regardless of the form of your planned gift, the direct beneficiaries are the most vulnerable people in our society, and each gift will benefit these individuals in perpetuity, enabling them to live safer, longer, and more meaningful lives.

*Note: Verland works closely with prominent experts in planned giving, tax law, and estate planning.  A consultation with these experts is available to you upon request, at no cost, and without obligation.

Contact with the animals and assisted riding helps to soothe the individuals, stimulate their muscles, and improve their balance. The Adopt-an-Animal program helps to cover the costs of caring for and training our horses and donkeys.
