You can empower people with disabilities to lead independent and inclusive lives in the community by supporting CILO via cash donations and a number of other methods of contribution:
Shopping Rewards, Employer Match, Material Donations, and Planned Giving:
Amazon Smile: Amazon customers can support CILO each time they shop. Log on to www.smile.amazon.com using your regular Amazon credentials and select Independent Living Options, Inc. (make sure it is Cincinnati). Once you are signed up, 0.5% of your subsequent purchases on smile.amazon.com will come to CILO.
Kroger Community Rewards: CILO can benefit every time you shop at any Kroger store in the Cincinnati area. Enroll your Kroger Plus Card and enter our member number CV138. (Does not impact your fuel points!)
Matching Gift Programs: Increase the power of your donation through your employer’s matching gift program.
Emergency Assistance Fund: This fund assists consumers who are in an unexpected, difficult, or dangerous situation requiring immediate action. These funds are only used when there are no other resources available.
Planned Giving: Please remember CILO in your wills and trusts to create a lasting connection between yourself and the lives of people with disabilities.
Making a gift for the benefit of others offers a wonderful way to affirm our values and priorities. You can make a secure gift through PayPal, by calling our Director of Advancement with your credit card information, or by mailing your check payable to “CILO”. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law and each donor will receive an acknowledgement letter.
