I served on the Board of the ACC for 7 years and was on the fund raising committee which raised several Million $ to finance the construction of their current facility and campus. Since retiring from the Board, I have been actively involved in the last two or three years in helping the ACC with their Oak Tree Society.The Oak Tree Society is the name for their deferred giving initiative. It is aply named and is a metaphore for their Mission which is "Out of acorns mighty trees can grow". The purpose is to raise awareness of the sterling mission which the ACC has in the Cleveland community and the range and depth of their services at their main facility and at Camp Cheerful. I have named the ACC in my Will with a bequest and we are encouraging others to do so as well. This outreach extends to the current and former Trustees and the community at large, utilizing an extensive prospect list which has been developed. The ACC is an organization near and dear to my heart. I have witnessed the differnce they have and can make in the lives of children with physical and mental disabilities and the families who have limited options for help. The staff is one of the most dedicated and committed of any I have worked with in the Not-For-Profit community. They are well trained, enthusiastic and creative in finding new therapies and methods for continual improvement in the outcomes of their patients. If one is seeking a worthwhile organization to which to donate time and financial support, the ACC should be #1 on the list!!
