All Made in the Shade contributions will support our 2023 My Voice! My Choice! Campaign to empower individuals with disabilities to thrive in an inclusive community where their voices matter, and choices are abundant.

This year, our My Voice! My Choice! campaign removes barriers so individuals with disabilities can access community-based opportunities for skill-building, employment, wellness, and the arts, where they can be seen, heard, and included! Please join us during Made in the Shade and support these powerful voices making choices during 2023.

Our Made in the Shade goal is 35,000.
Every contribution will amplify voices and choices by:

  • Removing barriers to inclusion, focusing on reliable and safe transportation, so clients can be seen, heard and included in the community!
  • Provide access to community-based opportunities to explore arts and culture, recreation and wellness through partnerships
  • Provide volunteering opportunities to build and practice functional and vocational skills
