Our Story, Your Legacy.
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.
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.
