Annual Fund

December 2018

Dear Friend of Valley Village,

          My name is Luz, and I love my job at Valley Village’s Adult Developmental Health Center.

          Valley Village programs – like the one where Luz works – make meaningful impacts and transform lives, but they will not continue to thrive solely on state funding.


Donate Now

          This year, we are asking for contributions to our general fund because the California State Legislature has not addressed the gap between state and Los Angeles city’s minimum wage. That gap will impact our ability to continue providing the quality of service our clients and their families have come to expect and deserve. Valley Village is committed to the long-term sustainability of our mission. We need your support to help us through this challenging time.

          As you consider your end-of-year giving, we are asking for your help to maintain vital programs and priorities that help Valley Village’s clients thrive in happiness and health. We have set a goal of $150,000 for this year’s campaign. We are grateful for generous annual gifts, and to help us reach this goal, we need more – more help from existing donors, and more donors.  Your support would be especially meaningful this year. You can give a little or a lot – every bit helps and is sincerely appreciated.  We would also appreciate your thinking about your friends and family who may be able to pitch in. Please share this message with them and tell them why you decided to give to Valley Village.  Encourage them to join our community of supporters.

          A gift of $1,000 or more qualifies for recognition as a member of our Circle of Friends, a designation given to our most generous donors.  We appreciate your generosity and your willingness to support Valley Village, our clients and our staff. 



With sincere gratitude,

Leela Kapur Judi Prejean
President, Valley Village President, Valley Village Foundation
