Endowment Helps Residents In Need
Friendship Manor unveils its unique fundraiser, the “No Show Gala,” and the community is invited to “not attend” so that monies can actually help fulfill the mission of Friendship Manor rather than paying the costs of putting on the event, which is so often the case with fundraising events.
The “No Show Gala” is a non-event with a goal of raising $250,000 per year for five years, to help build Friendship Manor’s permanent endowment fund making it possible for Friendship Manor to provide charity care to residents in financial need.
With declining reimbursements, the need for charity care on the rise, and the silver tsunami of baby boomers coming into retirement, the need for high-quality, sustainable senior services is expected to explode while the monies to pay for these necessary services is eroding.
