Financial support from the community is a necessary part of any nonprofit organization. Easy Lift Transportation has relied upon the generosity of the local community to sustain its service to the south coast since 1979.
Provide the gift of freedom
As a nonprofit organization, Easy Lift is unique in the paratransit industry. Most similar organizations in the U.S. rely exclusively on government funding, while just half of our Dial-a-Ride funding is from the government. Because of our nonprofit status, Easy Lift can leverage government funding with additional fundraising revenues. This allows us to double our capacity and serve twice as many people!
In addition, with government funding an ever shrinking source of revenue, we are looking to members of the community to help us fill the gap. And even though we serve thousands of passengers each year, passengers need to make reservations two weeks in advance because we simply don’t have enough drivers or vehicles to meet the increasing demands of our aging population.
Bottom line? Transportation provides independence vital to maintaining quality of life. Easy Lift is able to continually strive to expand our services to meet the unmet and growing needs of our community…with your help. Donate today and give the gift of freedom to the most vulnerable in our community.
