4imprint's donation of $500 enabled us to add vibrant green mugs to our existing line of mugs and other merchandise. These cheerful mugs feature Corvilla’s logo and serve as a reminder of the organization's mission. In addition, each sale supports our mission to serve individuals with disabilities as they work toward their goals of independence and fulfillment.
Corvilla received an $8,500 grant from the Pokagon Fund to launch a photography program at our Granger location. This grant allowed the organization to purchase essential equipment, including computers for each Day Service site, a Cannon Rebel Camera Bundle, and a Cannon Imageprograph professional photographic inkjet printer. With this new equipment, Corvilla can now provide its clients with an engaging and enriching photography program that will help them develop new skills and express their creativity.
Employees from J.P. Morgan donated matching funds for Christmas gifts for Corvilla clients.
