Giving to The Hearthstone

Expressing gratitude through giving.

As a nonprofit, we see success through a different lens than for-profit organizations. While financial strength and security matter, once basic commitments are provided for, we believe there are other values worth elevating: happiness, future security and peace of mind.

To that end, The Hearthstone Endowment Fund supports what’s most important through generous donations back to our community. From enriching the lifestyle of the community through arts, music and entertainment to helping residents in their time of greatest need, our Endowment Fund helps our extended family in many ways.

Here are a few of the ways donors have made a difference:

Paying It Forward: The Resident Assistance Fund

As a faith-based, 501c3 nonprofit corporation, a component of The Hearthstone’s mission is to ensure that residents who participate in the care continuum and outlive their financial resources through no fault of their own may continue to live in the community. Eligible residents may be invited to apply for the Hearthstone’s Resident Assistance Fund, which is made possible through Board of Trustee designated funds, resident donations and family donations. However, residents joining The Hearthstone on a “month-to-month, no continuing care” contract basis are ineligible to apply for fund assistance.

A Gift of Music: The Entertainment Fund

Former resident Ms. Jackie C. left a sizable grant devoted to community entertainment. As a lifelong musician and an avid fan of classical music, Ms. C. designated her grant to fund concerts, musicians and ensembles, a gift that will touch residents for years to come.

Getting Around: The Transportation Fund

The Transportation Fund addresses the needs of residents without private transportation to medical appointments, shopping or social engagements.

Like a Family: The Greatest Need Fund

The Greatest Need Fund was created to take advantage of unexpected opportunities and to deal with unexpected problems. This fund enables the Board of Trustees to swiftly respond to an urgent need or promising plans that will enhance the quality of life and care for our residents.
