$24,000 Goal

Thank you! With a gift to Lifeworks today, you’ll help people with disabilities achieve their goals – and help us meet our $12,000 match! 

At Lifeworks, we partner with people with disabilities to drive change by increasing opportunity and access in the community. Your gift to Lifeworks during Give to the Max 2022 supports innovative and person-centered services.

Two anonymous donors will match dollar-for-dollar up to $12,000 during Give to the Max 2022! These supporters encourage generosity for our mission to break down barriers and create more accessible, equitable, and diverse communities in partnership with people with disabilities.

Lifeworks is leaning into our value of “You Lead the Way – We Listen.” Instead of telling people with disabilities what they need or offering “one-size-fits-all” services, we partner with people with disabilities. Together, we discover what they want for careers, daily activities, and community engagement, and we ask ourselves how we can make it happen.

Like Scott, who stepped out of his comfort zone at his job of nearly two decades and leaned on the natural supports in his workplace to learn a new skill.

And Alyssa, who is building connections and community by learning – and teaching - American Sign Language to her peers and coworkers.

And Ajani, who started an employee resource group at his workplace that focuses on creating an environment where people with disabilities feel they can succeed. 

Together, and in partnership with people like Scott, Alyssa, and Ajani, we are breaking down barriers for people with disabilities across Minnesota, centering lived experience and driving change in our communities. Join us with a gift today!
