The Columbus Dispatch shared the story of LifeCare Alliance’s $5 million endowment match campaign in an article on March 25.
An anonymous donor has generously committed to matching the first $5 million in Endowment gifts, beginning in 2018. The donation comes during a momentous time for LifeCare Alliance as the Agency celebrates its 120th anniversary.
“To exist into the future, we need to build this fund up,” Chuck Gehring, president and CEO of LifeCare Alliance, said. “When I heard about this opportunity, I cried.”
The Meals-on-Wheels program is the Agency’s largest service, providing 5,000 meals to 5 counties in the area daily. One of our clients, Raymond Powell, has been receiving one of these hot, nutritious meals several times a week for 11 years now and also visits one of the Senior Dining Centers every week.
“Without them, I wouldn’t eat very well,” said Powell. “It’s good to get out of the house a bit and have a hot meal.”
Continuing to provide these essential services to our clients is a priority for LifeCare Alliance, and growing the Endowment fund is a key part in securing the future of the Agency.
