“I donate to support Dementia Care because we have a family connection to this disease”

“The Washington campus has always been my main interest and I was proud to have served for 10 years on the executive committee of the Presbyterian SeniorCare Network Board. Over the years, I watched the organization grow from two buildings to nearly 50. When I found out that Woodside Place of Washington would be dedicated to the care of people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, I knew I wanted to be involved because we have a family relationship with the condition. I was so honored to find out that my gift had been used for the Adult Day Center at Woodside Place of Washington and that they were going to name it after me. I feel that I am leaving a legacy of caring for the people of Washington County and setting a good philanthropic example for my son, daughter, five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.”

“I donate to Benevolent Care”

“When the pandemic started and nursing homes seemed to be hit the hardest, I was confident that Presbyterian SeniorCare Network would do everything in its power to protect its residents. Between the added cost of personal protective equipment and the hardships employees and residents might face as a result of the pandemic, I knew that the need for benevolent care funds would go up. I joined the Cornerstone Society to ensure that those who need the support would have it, because I trust the Foundation’s financial stewardship.”

“I donated to honor my wife”

“My wife was a resident of Woodside Place of Oakmont and later The Willows of Oakmont. I got to see first-hand the quality of care and caring that Presbyterian SeniorCare Network staff show every day on the job. I was proud to donate to continue the Network’s mission of making aging easier for people who need care but may have outlived their resources. I wanted to honor my wife’s memory by making the gift to the Cornerstone Society as a way to thank the many caregivers who helped us while she was there.”

“I gave to support future generations”

“My mother and my aunt were both residents at Manchester Commons in Erie and I saw firsthand the high level of person-centered care they received. I was so impressed with the dedication of the caregivers and the quality of the organization that I wanted to be a part of it. I’ve served on the Erie board of directors for 30 years now and I’m proud that my gifts of time, talent and treasure have supported an organization that cares for the neediest, most vulnerable people with compassion and benevolence. I gave because I want to make sure that Presbyterian SeniorCare Network is still here for me and future generations of the Erie community. ”

“I donate for garden beautification”

“I administer a fund that my mother set up with the Pittsburgh Foundation. When I saw that the new garden at The Willows of Oakmont had a blank wall, I authorized a grant from the foundation to cover the cost of an art project to fill it. I wanted the residents of the Oakmont campus to be able to take part in the making of the artwork and connected the organization with Stevo Sadvary, a Pittsburgh mosaic artist, who designed the mosaic and then oversaw its creation. Now, when the residents are in the garden, they are not only enjoying the beauty; they are experiencing the artwork they and their fellow residents created themselves.”

“I donate to show my gratitude”

“Longwood at Oakmont has been a godsend for me after my husband died. To show my gratitude, I wanted to make a large donation to Presbyterian SeniorCare Network, but I was afraid to make it while I am still living just in case I need funds for living expenses. I decided to donate the proceeds of my Longwood entrance fee once I die. Not only can I make a meaningful donation, I also can keep that money out of my estate so my heirs don’t have to pay taxes on it.”
