What if the ONLY thing limiting your potential
was a RIDE?
Transportation for PRI clients means:
They can’t get there, if they can’t get there!
Your Give to the Max Day gift, of any amount, will drive PRI’s mission to create partnerships between adults with disabilities and the community. The individuals we serve are just like you…they are creative, they have the desire to work, they give back to the community through volunteering, they have interests and unlimited potential, but they can’t reach that potential without a ride.
Transportation vans are critical so PRI clients can:
- WORK at various locations throughout the metro, and at job trials to get valuable experience
- VOLUNTEER in the community – including Arc Value Village, Gigi’s Playhouse, MS Society, Fort Snelling, Feed My Starving Children and so many other opportunities
- PERFORM in concerts as members of the Glee Club at MacPhail Center for Music
- CHOOSE to participate in both activities and part-time jobs by getting to work, utilizing a “half-day” van
- EXERCISE at the YMCA and the Jewish Community Center
- PARTICIPATE in art classes by traveling to PRI’s Art Studio in Minneapolis
What does it cost to get them there?
Monday-Friday PRI provides transportation with our half-day van to clients working at 5 different part time job sites.
$95/day = $475/week = $24,700/year
PRI contracts for an extra Studio Art Van 2 days/week so clients at the St. Louis Park site can take classes at the PRI Art Studio in Minneapolis.
$335/week = $17,420/year
Monday-Friday we provide transportation for 5 clients to go to a Job Trial.
$150/day = $750/week
Your donation of $150 will provide transportation for one individual to participate in a 5 day Job Trial!
Contracted community access vans (cultural trips, volunteering, health & wellness and more).
Your donation of $200 can provide access to a whole world of experiences!
What IS “Give to the Max Day?”
Every year in November thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for Minnesota causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans. GiveMN links donors with organizations that are working to make Minnesota a better place. Its online giving website, GiveMN.org, enables charitable giving any time and any place, allowing people to donate with ease and enthusiasm.
“Give to the Max Day has become a Minnesota giving holiday,” said Jake Blumberg, Executive Director of GiveMN. “For 24 hours, thousands of organizations and individuals rally to support amazing and important causes that make Minnesota a great place to live, work and play.”
Won’t you join PRI this year as we celebrate acceptance, inclusion, and opportunities for those living with disabilities?
Here at PRI, we have raised much needed funds over the past years for many different needs. Since 2012, our generous donors and supporters have given over $70,000 to PRI on Give to the Max Day!
Help support PRI as we celebrate this Minnesota giving holiday!
Become a PRI PARTNER today!
PRI Partners: We’re in this together!
A message from PRI Parent, Chris Klug:
As parents of a PRI client, we were happy to jump on the PRI Partners bandwagon when it was announced. And we are encouraging all those with relatives and loved ones served by PRI to do the same! Our reason is simple: our son Chan spends every weekday at PRI in St. Louis Park and hopefully, he will be there every weekday for a long, long time. The “extras” that Partnership Resources, Inc. provides is what makes it a special place and it takes regular funding through donations to ensure that those “extras” continue. A regular monthly gift of ANY size provides PRI with more certainty and stability as they budget and plan for the future.
What if you could turn a $10 donation into an additional $1,000 donation for PRI?
On November 14, every gift made on GiveMN.org will be entered in multiple prize drawings for Golden Tickets.
GiveMN will be giving away $500 every ten minutes, $1,000 every hour, and
$10,000 at the end of the day – all to Minnesota nonprofits and schools.
The more gifts we generate on GiveMN.org on November 14, the more our chances increase to receive that
additional $10,000 donation. Just imagine what PRI could do for our individuals with $10,000!
