Oftentimes people want to know how they can help…what they can do to make a difference for the individuals we serve. One of the easiest ways to make an immediate and direct impact is to support DEC financially. You can maximize your gift today by sending a check to our administrative offices at: DEC, 333 E. Airy St., Norristown, PA 19401, or by making a gift conveniently online right now by clicking on Donate Now. This will ensure a secure transaction using your credit card. Thank you for your support.
An in-kind gift is a contribution of goods or services that can be used to benefit DEC’s mission, or can be readily converted to cash and may qualify as a charitable deduction for the person(s) making the gift.
Employer Matching Gift Programs
One way to double the impact of your gift to DEC is to participate in your company’s matching gift program.
Your employer may match a percentage of, or all of your charitable gift. Each company has different requirements and procedures; however, your human resources department should be able to answer most of your questions. We are also here to help.
For further information on matching gifts, you may contact our Controller, Brian Hague at 610-277-3122, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DEC is a participating donor choice agency in the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Our United Way donor option number is 00327 and our full corporate name is Developmental Enterprises Corporation.
