Generosity in Action
Kirkland Village is fortunate to have residents, families, volunteers and staff who are committed to ensuring and enhancing the quality of life for all residents at every level of service – now and in the future.
Gifts to Kirkland Village over the years have been as varied as the people we serve and have been made directly by individuals, corporations and private family foundations. Donors, including residents, have supported major capital projects like our new Fitness and Aquatic Center, Serenity Garden, Chapel and Auditorium Chancel. Resident-initiated fund drives and personal donations have supported our outstanding Library, the Carol King-Helbling Music Fund, the Carol Perfect Art Fund, vehicles including two buses (one of them wheelchair accessible) and our memorial tree program. Many other gifts, such as to our chaplaincy program, anniversary fund, or activities like our Wii entertainment systems, have been generously provided by many Kirkland Village friends, including staff through our annual employee giving campaigns.
In addition, gifts to the Kirkland Village Foundation help to provide charitable care to those residents who have outlived their personal financial resources. No one has ever been asked to leave the Presbyterian Senior Living system of care because they had outlived their resources. This means if a person does not divest or give away assets, we have an unwavering history of keeping our commitment to the people we serve. In fact, Kirkland Village provided $347,965 for uncompensated care in 2010.
If you or a loved one have benefited in any way from our services, we invite you to consider extending the gift of quality care and quality of life in any number of ways.
