Shepherd's Foundation

Our Story, Your Legacy.

shepherdsfoundation_horizontal2

Since 1994, Shepherd’s Foundation has raised funds to provide the necessary support for the programs and services offered throughout the organization and ensures that residents receive the care and compassion they deserve.

Fulfilling Dreams

We know that each and every chapter in the lives of our residents has deep meaning. Our organization is dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of our residents. Providing financial support is key to this provision. Whether the dream is to visit a hometown, get front row seats to a Broadway show or gather family and friends for an ice cream social, no dream is too big or too small!

Individual and corporate donations help to support these worthwhile events and make dreams come true for our residents.

Everyone Has a Story to Tell

At Shepherd of the Valley, we believe that each of us has a story to tell; a life story that represents all of the memories and milestones that make up a lifetime. It’s these stories that drive our commitment each and every day to be the region’s leading provider of senior care services. As the benevolent support arm of the organization, the Foundation provides financial support, grants and investment contributions directed to promoting and improving the lifestyles of our residents.

Planning your Legacy

Shepherd's Legacy Society

Shepherd’s Legacy Society recognizes individuals who decided to remember our ministry as a bequest in a will or as a beneficiary of a deferred (planned) giving vehicle. This generosity allows us to continue fulfilling our mission and creates a legacy of your family member into perpetuity.  

Through Shepherd’s Foundation, we are committed to taking our resident’s stories and memories and preserving them through the ongoing support of our many programs and services.

Your contribution can be seen at work in our:
