Make a Gift

Dear Friends of Friendship Haven:

Why give to Friendship Haven?

You have plenty of opportunities today to give. Because each dollar you give is meaningful, we want you to be certain that partnering with Friendship Haven is a decision you can feel good about.

Hundreds of generous friends recently contributed more than money, helping Friendship Haven complete a major campus upgrade. Indeed, we do have beautiful surroundings; but from our earliest days, it is what happens inside of these walls that is the most special. Friendship Haven was the dream of Dr. Clarence Tompkins, who committed his life to making it a reality. Dr. Tompkins said it best, “Friendship Haven is not a pile of bricks. It is a GREAT SOUL.”

That soul remains. Your generosity provides benevolent care... assurance that we never have to ask anyone to leave Friendship Haven for lack of resources. As you support our Care Trust Fund, you help provide for the monthly contract expenses (accommodations and care) for those who have exhausted their resources. Just imagine the peace of mind you provide.

That soul remains. Your generosity ensures that seniors’ needs are met. Your gift to our Good Samaritan Fundprovides for unplanned expenses, perhaps special medical equipment, on an as-needed basis. Or it might be transportation for a medical procedure farther away; your support meets an immediate need and reminds the beneficiary that many people care.

That soul remains. Your generosity ensures that innovation remains our top priority.  Your gift to our Arbor Fund helps us continually beautify our grounds; and support for our Mission and Vision Fund plants the seed for programs and services to keep Friendship Haven at the forefront of retirement living.

Thank you for making Friendship Haven an important part of your life. We value every relationship in this great community. Each day, we begin anew to earn your trust and support. And we end each day in grateful celebration for all the lives your generosity has touched. Indeed, Dr. Tompkins, it is a GREAT SOUL.
