Charitable Care is the hallmark of all that we do at Westminster Village. In the history of this community, no resident has been asked to leave due to their inability to continue to pay for the total cost of their care. In 2008, charitable care was provided to 46 residents across all levels of care.
Gifts from residents, family members, and other friends in the form of memorials, tributes, bequests, gifts of insurance, and IRAs allow us to continue this mission. Gifts of any amount are gratefully received and there are many options for making a contribution, including arrangements that can provide income back to the donor.
Gifts may be made to directly support the needs of our residents, activities, and projects at Westminster Village in Dover, Delaware. Below are specific funds that have been previously established:
- Florence Nightingale Scholarship Fund – This endowment, established by the late Dr. Elizabeth Lloyd, awards annual educational scholarships to employees who pursue a career in nursing.
- Remember~Honor~Celebrate Tribute Program – You can recognize a special occasion or accomplishment (birthday, anniversary, graduation), say “thank you” to caregivers or other staff, or memorialize a special person with a lasting gift to this fund. You may designate your gift to a particular project or area of Westminster Village, such as charitable care, or allow us to use your gift where it is most needed.
- Bequests – Provide opportunities for individuals to promote and carry out their wishes on how their assets will be used by future generations. Many individuals may not be in a financial position to make an immediate gift during their lifetime, but provisions in a will can convey one’s wishes to an organization of their choosing. We strongly recommend that you carefully consider this arrangement in relation to your comprehensive financial and estate plans. Please consult an attorney in the preparation of your will and to supervise its execution so as to comply with state requirements.
