Here are several ways that you can become involved in LifeSPAN
Become a Network Member or Facilitator
Maybe you’d like to become a part of a network of friends of a person with a disability to help that person connect to community, make contributions, and enjoy a good life. For more information, contact our LifeSPAN Network Coordinator, Joanne Whitehead: firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have openings for part-time, paid network facilitators. See the Facilitator Job Openings.
Become a Family or Lifetime Member
If you would like to establish a personal support network for your relative with a disability, consider joining LifeSPAN as a Family Member. If it is right for your family and you wish to set up ongoing financial support for a lifetime commitment to supporting your loved one’s personal support network, consider joining as a Lifetime Member. For more information, review the Membership FAQs and contact LifeSPAN email@example.com.

Another Way to Support LifeSPAN: Use GoodSearch and GoodShop
The Yahoo-powered search engine www.goodsearch.com donates half its advertising revenue to registered charities. Use it just as you would any search engine.
To designate LifeSPAN, go to www.goodsearch.com, and in the box that says “enter your charity here,” type in LifeSPAN.
From the list displayed, select:
“LifeSPAN – Lifetime Personal Assistance Network (WA).”
The more you use GoodSearch, the more our donations add up!
Once you’ve designated LifeSPAN on GoodSearch, you can also go shopping at ww.goodsearch.com/goodshop.aspx, an online shopping mall which donates up to 30% of each purchase to LifeSPAN. Hundreds of stores, including Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, eBay, Macy’s, and Barnes & Noble, have teamed up with GoodShop.
And, of course, please tell your friends about these great ways to donate to LifeSPAN!
Thank you for your support of LifeSPAN, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donations make it possible for us to carry out our mission to support families in developing a safe, secure, and quality future for their relatives with disabilities.
AmazonSmile – The Gift That Keeps on Giving!
AmazonSmile makes it very easy to donate when you buy from Amazon.com. . . and it costs YOU nothing.
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You can use your same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile – no need to change your existing account. Type in our name, specifically, Lifetime Secure Personal Assistance Network, as opposed to LifeSPAN. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other settings are also the same.
Millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations —you will see them marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. When you purchase and choose LifeSPAN as your favorite charity, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to us.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support LifeSPAN, at no cost to you. Thank you to those of you who have been using it already and we hope others will join and continue using it!
