SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY AND CHARITABLE GIVING, 2022
Social accountability for a non-profit organization is the impact that organization has on its wider community. It is a measure of an organization’s commitment to its mission, stakeholders and the greater community.
Each of the LifeSpire of Virginia communities along with the Virginia Baptist Homes Foundation are significantly impacting the communities in which they are located. As part of our vision of vibrant living where faith, wellness and community flourish, that community extends around each residence.
In 2022 residents and team members at The Chesapeake, The Culpeper, The Glebe, Lakewood, Lakewood at Home, The Summit, the Virginia Baptist Homes Foundation and the home office team provided more than $1.4 million in monetary donations, goods and services to public charities and organizations.
Across all of LifeSpire, team members gave over 400 hours and residents gave over 6,000 hours of time to volunteer service.
