Dear Ms. Worley and Mr. Moore.
I attended a play at the Parker
today, and noticed in the program that Developmental Pathways was listed as a
contributor to the PACE
becoming a "2015 Major Gift" contributor (or a "Founding Donor")
in the range of $1,000 to $9,999.
I returned home and viewed your website where it asks for
contributions, and discovered that, at the same time you are giving away
donations, you are asking for donations, and
according to your figures, even a minimum donation of $1,000 would
provide 25-50 hours of respite care.
Could you please explain why, on the one hand, you are
asking for donations for vital services, and on the other, you are donating to
organizations such as the PACE
in Parker, (not a poor organization by any means) possibly up to $9,999.00? Are the donors aware of this?
From your website:

Here are some examples of how donations are used.
$20-40 provides one hour of Respite Care
$45-80 provides one session of OT, Speech or Physical Therapy
$80 provides one hour of horse, or equine, therapy
$500 assists a family with the purchase of an electric wheelchair
continuously asked for more CCB transparency, including an online
"checkbook." This transaction
points to one more reason why this is critically needed.
