Dear Friends of RSI,
 
This is the time of year when we all receive many donation request letters.  This is our letter to you, and we thank you for taking the time to read it.  If you are a past supporter of Residential Services, Inc. (RSI), thank you!  We appreciate your interest, support, and generosity! 


 
Each of us at RSI approach every day guided by our vision to provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities a life of happiness, dignity, health, and the highest degree of social responsibility and productivity.  Though we are deeply proud of the milestones and successes we have reached for more than 40 years with your support, we are steadfast in looking to the future as we continually strive to improve, diversify, and grow our programs in response to the changing needs of our community.
 
RSI is a local, nonprofit organization that provides valuable services to people with developmental disabilities.  We are not part of a larger organization, nor do we have the numbers or scope to attract donors from across the state or across the country.  Every donation goes to support local services and helps to meet the needs of our community.  It is your gift that will continue to make it possible for RSI to support adaptive, new, and innovative programs that are needed now more than ever. 
 
This year we ask you once again to join our mission by supporting our Security Fund as you conduct your year-end financial planning.  A donation to RSI’s Security Fund is a contribution to help ensure that RSI can continue to provide security to the individuals and families we currently serve; to improve and develop new services; and to fulfill our long-term commitment of supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with excellence and integrity.  A donation to the Security Fund is an investment in the future.
 
Another way to invest in the future is to make a gift to support staff appreciation activities for employees that are making a difference every day in the lives of the people we support.  Our employees are the backbone of RSI and provide the essential support for individuals to live happy, fulfilling, and active lives in their home and community.  Your gift to the staff appreciation fund is a wonderful way to say “thank you” for the dedicated work of RSI employees and will help ensure the continuance of funding throughout the year for RSI staff appreciation events, gifts, and recognition awards.  
 
Your tax deductible donation helps assure that RSI can continue to grow, improve services, and fulfill our long-term commitment of providing the highest quality services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities into the future.  

Please click here to make an online contribution through PayPal, or mail your tax-deductible gift to Residential Services, Inc., Attn: Development, 111 Providence Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and employees, thank you for your generous support! 
 
Sincerely,                               
 
Scott A. Keller
Executive Director
