Smiling faces -- Just a few of the reasons to join the Presidents' Council    

Pictures of just a few people your gift will helpEaster Seals Presidents' Council was created in 1995 to honor the generous individuals who provide an annual outright gift of $1,000 or more to help meet the challenges we face. Easter Seals' premiere recognition club, the Presidents' Council is comprised of friends who share the belief that everyone with a disability or developmental special need deserves access to quality, comprehensive and compassionate programs and services.

Any individual who provides an annual outright gift or gifts totaling $1,000 or more in a 12-month period is recognized in the Presidents' Council. Some friends pay in quarterly or monthly installments; others give a one-time gift each year. These are direct gifts to benefit programs, and are not related to special events or tickets sales or other premiums.
