The Michael Dunn Center is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit program serving adults and children with developmental disabilities in East Tennessee. We are funded in part from the Tennessee Division of Intellectual Disabilities Services (DIDS), The Tennessee Department of Human Services, Tennessee Department of Health, Roane County United Way, Roane County and many other state and local sources. Our local sources include business, corporate and individual donations.
Your expression of care in the form of a donation to Michael Dunn will help ensure that we continue to be able to provide services to both children (early intervention, school age programs and a host of therapeutic interventions) and adults (supported employment, vocational training, community participation, residential, transportation and a variety of person centered support services) in our community who are challenged by developmental disabilities.
If you would like to make a tax-free donation, just make your selection below, provide the rest of the information, and click the "Continue" button at the bottom of this page.
