PROJECT INDEPENDENCE RECEIVES $10,000 GRANT TO FUND PROGRAM OFFERING FUN CONFIDENCE-BUILDING ADVENTURES FOR PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES

Louis & Gladyce Foster Family Foundation Helps Fund Access2Adventure Program

Costa Mesa, California, June 30, 2017 – With the support of a $10,000 grant from the Louis & Gladyce Foster Family Foundation, a family foundation established in Southern California, Project Independence’s popular Access2Adventure Program will be restored.

The program provides carefully supervised outings for people with developmental disabilities served by the Costa Mesa-based nonprofit organization like attending Angels baseball games, bowling, and kayaking.

The announcement of the revitalization of the program comes in conjunction with fundraising efforts in support of the eighth edition of nonprofit Project Independence’s Walk for Independence, which will commemorate the organization’s 40th anniversary. The Walk is set for September 9 at Tewinkle Park in Costa Mesa.

Visit https://www.proindependence.org/walk-for-independence/ for information. Eighty-seven cents of every dollar raised by Project Independence goes directly to support programs for people with developmental disabilities. Other sponsors for the Walk are now being sought. Interested parties can contact Director of Development Todd Eckert at Todd@Proindependence.org or 714-549-3464.

“We thank the Foundation for their generosity and know the people we serve are excited about the return of a program that allows them to enjoy experiences that so many of us take for granted,” said Project Independence CEO and President Debra Marsteller.
