Donations and Development
Each year there is a need to raise funds for specific purposes at Uplands Village. Although our members and residents pay reasonable fees to cover the operation of Uplands, there are two additional reasons why funds are needed from outside contributions.
First, Uplands provides financial assistance for those members and residents who are not able to pay the fees that would normally be charged for their care. Uplands has a policy where application can be made for these funds based on need. Your donations to Uplands Village assist these individuals.
Second, as is the case with any organization, from time to time equipment needs to be replaced and buildings need to be kept current. This, along with other capital projects, is the second reason that Uplands seeks donations. These funds provide the money to complete these special needs and in some cases in the future may even be directed to new buildings like we did for the New Wharton Homes.
Finally, as is the case with any non-profit organization, endowments are necessary to ensure the financial stability of the organization. Any additional funds raised by Uplands are directed to these endowments for future use as needed.
Donations can be made in several ways listed below
Throughout the year, Uplands receives general donations that provide for the cost of care for those residents who can no longer afford their care. In addition these contributions provide for the capital needs of Uplands including replacement of equipment and other long term needs.
Individuals sometimes want to leave a legacy to provide assistance to Uplands and its residents. This can be accomplished in two ways. First is the use of a gift annuity which provides income to the individual until their death with the balance going to Uplands. This annuity can have very favorable tax advantages as well as favorable rates of return. The second method is to include Uplands in your will to receive a specific gift at your death.
Each year Uplands receives donations given by families in memory of family or friends. This is a very special way to remember these loved ones or friends. For information regarding memorial donations, please contact the Uplands Development Office.
Sometimes families or friends of Uplands will want to provide a special gift for a special reason. As an example, recently a family donated a dogwood tree because their family member, a member of Uplands, loved to see the dogwoods bloom each spring. Special gifts can be arranged by the Uplands Development Office.
