VMRC Foundation exceeds budget goal
April 12, 2017 - The VMRC Foundation surpassed its goal for the Good Samaritan Fund fiscal year ending 2017 by more than $2,000. The Foundation raised $267,137 to provide for VMRC residents living in assisted living or complete living care whose income or Medicaid falls short of actual costs of care.
More than $1.5 million was secured toward the Reinvesting in Our Community Campaign, said Les Helmuth, executive director of the VMRC Foundation.
That campaign is an initiative to renovate the first floor of Oak Lea with 35 private rooms for Transitional Care, complete Woodland Park with five new 11-person homes and a community center, initiate a nurse education endowment and increase the Compassion Endowment which provides financial assistance to residents who have outlived their own resources.
VMRC’s annual Golf Benefit Tournament in 2016 netted $60,000 toward the Memory C.A.R.E. Endowment.
“With all these gifts, we received $2,057,701 in cash, new pledges and future commitments from our community of donors – residents, staff, board members, businesses, churches, foundations and community members,” said Les. “VMRC has been very blessed.”
