CR maintains an affiliated Foundation governed by Trustees whose sole responsibility is to maintain, grow, and appropriately use income from CR’s endowment. The investment and distribution of funds is governed by an agency investment policy as well as by federal law and regulations.
The endowment’s purpose is to generate income for CR’s ‘Quality of Life’ program. It is the policy of the Foundation to spend only a portion of endowment income and to leave all original principal invested. The ‘Quality of Life’ program funds otherwise unfunded critical needs such as: psychiatric and dental care; prescriptions and co-pays; and hospice care.
The endowment also provides for therapeutic day and recreational programs such as: art and horticultural therapy; horseback-riding therapy; exercise routines; and community-engagement outings and activities.
Finally, income from the endowment allows CR to make improvements to our properties and to individual’s rooms so those we serve may feel truly at home.
Donations to the Foundation endowment can be offered through any of the means described on the Donations page. Planned gifts, ongoing pledges, and one-time offerings of stock or cash are welcome. Donations can be made in memory or in honor of a loved one, or in honor of a special event. Your gift can also be specified for a particular CR program or residence, or to support CR’s overall mission.
