Benevolent Fund

Menno Haven established its Benevolent Fund to provide a secure future for the organization’s residents and team members. It is structured so that a portion of the principle is released for use each year, allowing charitable donations to the fund to have a greater impact over time. According to the Population Reference Bureau’s report “Aging in the United States”, the number of Americans age 65 and older is projected to more than double from 46 million to over 98 million by the year 2060. In order to respond to the needs of our future residents, growing our Benevolent Fund is crucial. This campaign seeks to add no less than an additional $8 million to Menno Haven’s Benevolent Fund. This fund will be built through cash gifts, multi-year pledges, resident refundable deposits, and other gifts made to Menno Haven through estates, wills and IRAs. A larger Benevolent Fund will expand Menno Haven’s ability to provide

• Additional care and security for current and future residents who experience unexpected financial challenges late in life
• Ministry programs and the resources to sustain those programs
• New resident life enrichment activities and art programs
• Outdoor amenities and programs for our residents
• Educational programs for our team members
• Upgraded technology and systems, as well as other operational requirements to improve the lives of our residents and make our team more efficient
