Ways you can Donate
Why Donate to EKO?
With current state and local budget cuts the EKO can help fill in the gaps by:
Providing social activities for special needs youth otherwise unavailable.
Supplementing educational opportunities for special needs students.
Assisting classroom teachers by providing supplemental supplies and equipment.
Paying for assistive devices for apparatuses to enhance function.
Enhancing interactions between parents and teachers.
Providing information regarding community resources and programs.
As a California non-profit, all contributions to the EKO are tax-deductible.

Wall of Heroes
Without the generous donations from our sponsors, and the valuable time provided by our volunteers, we would not be able to make the impact that we do in our community. You are our heroes!
