You Can Support Seniors

Throughout LifeSpire’s nearly 70-year history, generous donors have supported many residents who, through no fault of their own, outlived their financial resources. On average, there are 50 to 60 of our 1,200 residents annually who need financial assistance to help cover the cost of their care.

Your support provides peace of mind, security, and dignity to residents in need.


You Can Choose Where to Give

Make a gift to the VBH Foundation and choose where your funds will be applied. An undesignated gift will benefit benevolence where the need is greatest.

You Can Choose When Your Gift Will Benefit a Resident

You Can Honor a Loved One

Many people choose to honor the passing of a loved one with a gift in their memory. Ask your family to put “in lieu of flowers, please make a gift the VBH Foundation [or the Community’s] Benevolent Fund” in the obituary.
Family members often honor the birthday or special occasion of their loved ones with a gift in their honor. Let your family know that in lieu of gifts, a tribute gift to the VBH Foundation or the Community’s Benevolent Fund is a great way to share their love for you.


You Can Join the Monthly Giving Circle

You can make an even bigger impact with your gift by joining the Monthly Giving Circle! A commitment to giving every month helps to sustain available funding for seniors in need. By giving a monthly, tax-deductible donation, you’ll be joining a special community of other dedicated supporters. Members of the Monthly Giving Circle will be invited to our annual Donor Dinner, receive a Foundation Donor Pin, and receive Circle updates throughout the year. You’ll also be helping to lower our costs, as you will not receive future solicitations.


Matching Gifts

Many companies offer to match gifts made by their employees and retirees, making an even bigger impact with your donation.  If your company participates, complete the necessary matching gift form provided by your company, and return it to us with your donation.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Stocks and publicly traded securities are easy to give and offer great tax advantages. The best stocks to use for charitable giving are those that you have owned longer than one year and have increased greatly in value. The proceeds from the sale of the stocks will benefit the Foundation’s support of the LifeSpire ministry. Learn More >
