How you can help support BASCA

BASCA, Inc. is a beacon of hope for the families of adults with disabilities. We provide support and activities ranging from residential services to transportation and life skills training.

BASCA depends on the support of our community to help fund the many services we provide. We have been blessed by the support of many local companies that have stepped up to sponsor our events. Additionally, many families and individuals give generously throughout the year.

There are many ways you can support the programs and services we offer at BASCA.

Event Sponsorships & Participation

Each year, BASCA holds two fundraising events, the CapeAbilities 5K/1M Run, Walk & Roll on September 24, 2022, and the SUBARU of Jacksonville Golf Classic on March 31, 2023. These events not only raise funds for the programs at BASCA, but help raise awareness of the needs of adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities in our community.

We also encourage everyone in the community to take part in these events. They are a great opportunity to have fun and meet others in our community while supporting BASCA.

Planned Giving and Wills

Planned giving, or Legacy giving, is a way to provide a gift through a bequest in your will, establishing an annuity to benefit BASCA, or a charitable trust.

Memorials or Tributes

Donors may choose to honor a loved one or make a gift in remembrance of someone who has passed.


A gift to support one of our four L.I.F.E. residential homes helps to sustain transportation, supportive care, life skills training, and more.


BASCA relies on volunteers to support our annual events and help with the Bargain Boutique. In addition, we welcome anyone with skills such as photography, administrative support, working in the greenhouse, etc.

Friends of BASCA

To become a Friend of BASCA, just make a pledge to support our efforts over the next two years. We ask that you give according to your ability, starting at just $8 each month. A pledge of $35 supports one day of our day program, and $84 supports one day in a L.I.F.E. Home. You can also choose to make a one-time donation. 

Capital Campaign Gifts

You can help Secure Their Future with a gift to our capital campaign. The campaign will help to build an Arts and Education Center, improve technology, and build capacity. Several naming opportunities are available through the Development Department.

Charitable Giving

As a nonprofit organization, BASCA relies on the generous donations of individuals, families, and businesses in our community. These fund support our residential and day programs, supportive employment, respite, transportation, life skills training, and more.

Donations to the Bargain Boutique

This one-of-a-kind thrift store sells gently used merchandise alongside our BASCA creations made by individuals in our day programs including planter boxes and recycling carts. We accept donations of furniture, art, books, clothing, toys, and more. Proceeds are used to support the programs and activities at BASCA.
