We are honored to welcome the Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development Endowment Fund to our portfolio of funds. An icon in our community, the SRRC has been providing services throughout LaSalle County since 1947. That is when “LaSalle County Chapter for Crippled Children” was begun by Streator business leader Henry M. Light. The agency eventually changed its name to Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties, and then the Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development, in 2015. Since it’s inception, the Center has consistently provided quality services to LaSalle and Bureau County children with, and without, special needs and their families so that they have equal opportunity to live, learn, and play in their community.

SRRC is a premier provider of speech, physical, developmental and occupational therapy services for children
SRRC is a child care center and pre-school for children with and without special needs
SRRC is a non-profit organization that strives to help all children live, learn and play to their maximum ability
Your endowment gift to the SRRC will help ensure that the Center will be able to withstand variances in the economy, government funding, event profits, and major changes to the overall resources of the Center. An endowment fund is invested in a diversified portfolio designed to manage risk, dampen market volatility and assure long-term, steady growth. The interest earned by the Fund is re-invested and accumulates over time. Generally, 4% of the Endowment balance is available for distribution to the Center annually, ensuring that the principal will continue to grow year after year. Anyone may make a gift to the Endowment, and donations are tax-deductible, in accordance with IRS regulations. We accept cash, checks, credit cards, insurance, IRA’s, bequests, planned gifts, real property, trust payments and publicly traded securities.
