Umbrella of the Capital District, Inc.'s Fundraiser:

Keeping Seniors & People with DIsabilities at Home

EVENT DATE: Jan 03, 2011


At Umbrella, we love what we do. We believe in what we do. Everyday we help people stay in their homes, safely and affordably. Just today, a son called and told us, “If it weren’t for Umbrella, my mother would have had to leave her home years ago.” His mother passed away on just before Thanksgiving. Notwithstanding the sadness of her passing, his mom was where she wanted to be, because of Umbrella. That made me smile.

Over the years, Umbrella has helped thousands of area seniors and people with disabilities live safely in their homes, in comfort and with dignity. Children living far away are relieved knowing their parents are not alone. With our great workforce of talented retirees, a few volunteers and some financial support from the community, we have been able to meet the needs of those wanting to stay in their homes.

At present, Umbrella faces a critical time. In order to continue doing what we do best, we urgently request your financial support.

We do have fundraisers. However, we are a small organization. Spending valuable Umbrella resources on putting together another event, asking people to spend money getting dressed up, hiring a sitter, taking precious time away from family and, finally, donating yet further to The Cause would be, to say the least, an imposition, given the current economy.

So as we help each other through this difficult time, please know that, because of your donation, someone can remain safely in their home.

Knowing this, I guarantee that your continued support will make you smile and Umbrella quite grateful.
