How We Are Funded

Funding for services provided by Allegheny Valley School comes from various sources including government programs and private donations. Allegheny Valley School is a non-profit organization and is constantly exploring new funding sources so it can continue as a leading provider of services for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Medicaid is our primary source of support. This funding source covers operating costs such as housing, food, utilities, medications, program services and the salaries of staff that provide care and treatment 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.

Allegheny Valley School is not a United Way member agency, but you can designate all or part of your United Way pledge to us. Contributions can also be made to Allegheny Valley School through bequests, wills and estates. These gifts are lasting contributions which help support our mission and ensure the future of Allegheny Valley School.
