Why People Give
Contributions to the Endowment Fund enable us to serve residents who do not have the resources to fully pay for their care.
The act of philanthropy is a spiritual act... an act of love expressed for one’s fellow man. “Philanthropy” comes from two Greek words, the “love” of “man”. Valley View Haven’s Endowment Fund was founded on this precept of love for fellow man.
Valley View provided $220,000 in Benevolent Care to our residents in Supportive Services for 2014.
• Over 20% of the Assisted Living residents at Valley View Terrace.
• Over 60% of the Nursing Home residents at Valley View Haven.
Investing in Others
An endowment fund is a gift that “keeps on giving”. The endowment fund is the caretaker that will outlast the donor.
Endowment fund earnings are used for resident care, while the fund’s principal remains intact.
Planning for the Future
There are challenges on the horizon as we look into the future. The endowment balance is currently over four million dollars. By 2014, Valley View Haven would like to increase the endowment fund to five million dollars. The income from this amount would go a long way to provide income to serve individuals who cannot afford to fully pay for their care.
