The North Bay Regional Center Board of Directors’ Doug Cleveland Opportunity Fund consists of donations from outside entities, staff donations and other donations from the community to assist people with developmental disabilities.

Doug Cleveland, a past Director of Client Services at NBRC developed the Board Opportunity Fund when he and his wife held a fundraising event for its initial donation.  Some examples of services paid through the opportunity fund include client funeral expenses, rent, food, clothing, etc.

For NBRC clients striving to live independently for the first time, the Board Opportunity Fund provides resources for them to obtain their own residence.

The NBRC Board Opportunity Fund is a worthwhile benefit that assists clients and families served by NBRC to experience a full range of support, activities, and progress in their lives.  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
