Good Samaritan Fund & Compassion Endowment
Helping our neighbors in need
Fortunately, we’re living longer than ever before. Unfortunately, not everyone has sufficient assets to keep up with their longevity.
While Medicaid covers part of the daily care expenses, it is only for eligible low-income recipients and covers only a portion of their long-term care—and only after their personal assets have been depleted.
As a faith-based community, VMRC values providing compassionate care for our members no matter what - including the inability to pay. But, we can’t do it alone. It takes a community and the combined efforts and generosity of family, church, friends, VMRC members, and government aid, through our Good Samaritan Fund and Compassion Endowment.
Why are their two funds for compassion funding? Good Samaritan Fund is an annual fund. Funds received this year are spent in the same year – typically around $270,000. Compassion Endowment is a permanent fund for compassion care. These funds are invested for long-term gain and VMRC only uses a portion of earnings from this permanent fund each year – approximately $180,000.
Together these funds cover approximately 25% of the care for the 36 residents who benefit from compassion funding.
