Your Opportunity to Make a Difference has never been better…

Every donation, large and small affects positive change.

Within our generation, people with disabilities were locked away from society with a belief that they had nothing useful to contribute.  Although much progress has been made in the past fifty years, individuals with disabilities still struggle to be seen, heard, valued, and included.  Your donation to the Barbara Stone Foundation supports the work of Greenville CAN.

YOU can be the difference.  Please make a contribution today.

Thank you for being a champion for individuals with disabilities!
