The Friendship Village Foundation
is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of residents, community volunteers and members of the Friends of Faith Retirement Homes, Inc. board. Gifts are recognized on donor plaques in the main lobby at Friendship Village.
An Endowment was established for donors who wish to designate their gifts. Donors may select from among three funds:
1. Benefactor Fund: Helping Village Neighbors
These gifts are used exclusively to help people. Request of the Foundation might include hardship situations or final arrangements. Gifts to the Benefactor Fund allow Friendship Village to continue quality care for residents facing financial distress.
2. Achiever Fund: Completing Village Projects
Every Achiever Fund project solves an immediate problem. Staff, residents and family members help identify short-term projects that can become reality with adequate resources. Resident comfort, security, access, entertainment, health and communication have all benefited from the Achiever Fund support.
3. Builder Fund: Building a Better Village
Friendship Village prides itself in providing safe, comfortable and beautiful facilities with a full compliment of quality services. Senior living needs, market conditions and regulatory requirements change. Friendship Village must keep pace by anticipating and addressing those developing community needs.
Gifts of $1,000 or more annually qualify the giver for a gold leaf on the Friendship Village Foundation tree.
Checks should be made to: Friendship Village Foundation, Inc.
