CCAR Industries is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded by a local parents’ group in 1969.  Our mission is to provide community-based services and supports that enhance the quality of life of East Central Illinois citizens with developmental disabilities and/or other functional limitations throughout their lifespan.  Our team is dedicated to providing high quality, individualized services to program consumers and their families.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas or if you would like more information about our agency!

CCAR Industries appreciates the generous support that we receive from contributors throughout the year.   Your generosity has truly made a difference in the lives of children, adults and families who are served by our programs!

Charitable contributions may be made to the agency in the form of cash, appreciated property, planned gifts, gift annuities and memorial or honorary gifts. You may also choose to donate with your debit card or credit card by using our secure PayPal Option on our donations page. Donations by personal check or money order are also accepted. Of course, the agency respects the privacy of donors. Thus, those who express the desire to remain anonymous will not be listed on our annual report donors page.   If you would like to specify where you would like your donation to be used, you are welcome to email us with your request and/or note this when you donate.

Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. You may want to consult with your tax advisor on the most appropriate avenue of donating for your individual situation.

The donation of goods or services is another excellent way to contribute. CCAR program staff plan educational and recreational activities throughout the year for program consumers. We are fortunate to receive a warm welcome in the local community. Some examples of helpful donations are gift cards, professional service donations, discounts on admission, craft supplies, school supplies for our preschool fundraiser, and other children’s items for our fundraisers and playgroups. A wonderful group of CCAR parents and loved-ones often donate packaged food and supplies for our day program celebrations. Party donations are always appreciated!

Amazon Smile is another way to donate. Sign-up online for an Amazon Smile account and whenever you make a purchase from Amazon, simply select CCAR Industries as your organization. Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase amount to us.

 Thank You for Your Donations!
