How You Can Help

Allegheny Valley School is a private, non-profit agency that provides quality programs and facilities to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Since our founding in 1960, we have grown from a single site agency serving 10 children into a multi-faceted organization with programs and facilities serving more than 900 individuals.

Medicaid is our primary source of revenue.  This funding covers our basic operating costs such as housing, food, utilities, medication, program services and the salaries of staff providing care for the residents.  Medicaid funding does not provide the start-up capital for things such as equipment, property, program expansion and renovations. Contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations and community groups help to cover these expenditures and are vital to help us maintain our level of care. Donations to Allegheny Valley School are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

There are numerous ways for you to help Allegheny Valley School including: making a monetary donation, designating your United Way contribution to us, coordinating holiday gift giving programs, volunteering for special projects, attending our special events, sending us your old ink cartridges and cell phones for recycling and more.
