Why should I give to RSI?

During the past few months, we have seen the devastating effects of hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, famine, and disease. With so many lives in the balance and so many global challenges, you may be thinking, why should I give to RSI? No one at RSI is starving or without a home, so why should I contribute?

Residential Services, Inc. (RSI) is a local, nonprofit organization providing essential services and valuable supports to people with developmental disabilities. We are not part of a larger organization, nor do we have the numbers or scope to attract donors from across the state or across the county. Every donation goes to support local services and helps to meet the needs of our community.

Most of our funds are from government sources, and these funds have become harder to secure and also more restrictive. Do you know, for example, that when someone is home sick or enters the hospital, we are not paid for services? However, we respond by doing what is right, ethical, and caring by continuing to provide support to that person. Donations to the Security Fund help make services available when government support is not there. The Security Fund helps to ensure that RSI has the financial reserves available to provide what is needed, rather than what is paid for. A donation to the Security Fund is an investment in our future.

Another way to invest in RSI's future is to make a gift in support of employee appreciation activities for those who are making a difference every day in the lives of the people we support. Our employees are the backbone of RSI and provide the essential support for individuals to live happy, fulfilling, and active lives in their home and community. Your gift to support employee appreciation is a wonderful way to say "thank you" for the dedicated work of RSI employees and will aid in our retention efforts by helping to ensure the continuance of funding throughout the year for RSI staff appreciation events, gifts, and recognition awards.

Your tax deductible donation helps assure that RSI can continue to grow, improve services, and fulfill our long-term commitment to providing the highest quality supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities into the future. Tax-deductible gifts may be made online or mailed to Residential Services, Inc., Attention: Development, 111 Providence Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and the entire RSI community, thank you for your generous support!

As a nonprofit organization, Residential Services, Inc. is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Consequently, your donations to RSI are tax-deductible.
