CCAR Industries is a not-for-profit corporation. We are a charitable organization qualified under Section 501 (c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. As such, we appreciate the generous support received from community members, businesses, family members, and other compassionate contributors throughout the year.

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.



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.  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.

Volunteers are always welcome at our agency.  Volunteering is a rewarding way to enrich the lives of those who attend our programs.  Over the years, we have been fortunate to have dancers, musicians, artists, writers, and a variety of guest speakers enrich our programs with their talent. In addition, we have welcomed interns and practicum students from Lake Land Community College and Eastern Illinois University. Their fresh ideas and enthusiasm for social services are always appreciated.  If you are interested in volunteering your time, please email us or phone 217-348-0127 for more information.

The Donation of Goods or Services is an 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 useful donations are gift cards to local restaurants, donated beauty and hair services, discounted automotive services for program consumers who own vehicles, gift cards to movie theaters, discounted admission to festivals/events, craft supplies, school supplies for our preschool fundraiser, and other children’s items for our fundraisers and playgroups.  Party donations are always appreciated too!  You can email us or phone 217-348-0127 for more information.
