2021 H&P Virtual Fundraising Event


To our guests: Thank you so much for being part of this special event! We hope you had a wonderful experience. We are tremendously grateful for our extended community of friends and supporters.

As you know, so much is different at May Institute this year. The upcoming Hope and Possibility Celebration on May 13th is no exception!
For the first time, our signature fundraiser will be virtual. This is giving us the opportunity to reimagine the event, and we’re so excited. While there are things that will be different this year, what will remain constant is the participation of our community and the celebration of the lives of the individuals and families we serve, and the financial support of our partners.  

Event Highlights —

  • Stories from the mothers of children and adults served at May Institute across the years
  • The May Institute 2021 President’s Award will be presented to Robert F. Putnam, Ph.D., LABA, BCBA-D, May’s Executive Vice President of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Consultation
  • For the first time, we will host an online silent auction with terrific items in the week leading up to the event, and the auction will wrap up at 8pm the night of the event.


Proceeds will support greatest needs at May Institute, including more and enhanced technology to support remote learning and telehealth services, adaptive technology and curricula for our classrooms and programs, and the enhancement of residential group homes.

With gratitude to our lead corporate sponsors for this year's event:
