Join Marklund’s monthly giving program, the Golden Kite Society, and help make everyday life possible for all of our clients. Each monthly gift adds up to help close the $13,200 annual gap for each of our 117 clients.
Your monthly gift can do so much, such as:
$15 Covers those everyday life extras like a trip to the store or a Community Integration outing
$30 Provides a dollar-a-day for the Marklund standard of care, including the best in therapies and highly skilled staff
$52 Closes the gap for an entire day of care for a Marklund client
$117 Supports each Marklund resident with one dollar, every month
In addition, Golden Kite Society members receive benefits including:
- Quarterly impact statements on how Golden Kite Society gifts are being used
- A personal tour of either Marklund facility in Geneva or Bloomingdale, Illinois
- Invitations to events usually reserved for Marklund residents and families, including our Annual Summer games, Holiday Open Houses, and more
- An annual statement of your contributions delivered in January each new year
Joining is simple – each month your gift is securely transferred from your credit card. You can increase, decrease, or suspend your contribution at any time.
