Spectrum's Capital Campaign for Building
After over 24 years of serving the Gwinnett County community, on September 19, 2022 Spectrum purchased a building! Since 2019, the need for more space to serve the community has been an ongoing conversation amongst the board, leadership, and staff. Yet, finding a place that has proper zoning, enough space for camps and respite, enough office space, and that is centrally located in Gwinnett has proven to be a challenge.
This year, we are embarking on our first Capital Campaign with a goal of raising $1,550,000. A successful Capital Campaign will allow Spectrum to continue to provide much-needed support, education, and resources to individuals and families impacted by autism in our communities.
How will this project make an impact?
With over 20,000 individuals with autism in Gwinnett County alone, creating an autism support center for families and individuals with autism, would fill in considerable gaps in needs in services and supports in our community and allow us to serve more people. A permanent site will enable us to hold trainings, support groups, respite, camps, social support groups and more.
How can I help?
You can prayerfully and generously give: Gifts may be one time or cumulative over a 3 year period. Named gift options are available. 100% of your support goes directly to sponsoring our building costs. You can give a one-time gift to the campaign by donating through our website or even commit to a multi-year gift by downloading a pledge form or setting up an easy recurring monthly payment. I hope you will be a part of making this dream a reality for our community!
We currently need to renovate the building, pave parking areas, and improve the yard. We hope to raise the funds and have the building ready to occupy by late spring 2023. You can help us do it!
We plan to fill the front porch with rocking chairs for train watching so make a one time donation of $2500 to get a plaque on the rocking chair in memory or honor of someone, to promote your business or just add a meaningful quote! We hope to purchase 15 rocking chairs and the proceeds will assist with doing the paving required by the City of Duluth. We need to raise $37,500 to cover the paving expenses and hope you find this a meaningful way to contribute and make a difference! Donate today!
