The Thanksgiving Fund:
Gratitude and Assistance for Staff
Presbyterian Homes employs 1,340 people – dedicated men and women who work to make our communities into gracious, welcoming homes. Housekeepers, nurses, chefs, landscapers, and administrators – each person touches the lives of residents in sometimes small, other times remarkable, ways.
The Thanksgiving Fund allows residents to make an impact on the lives of Presbyterian Homes’ employees through three crucial areas:
Scholarships: talent and commitment, not the ability to pay tuition and fees, open the doors to an academic, technical or vocational education. This fund provides scholarships to exceptional employees and allows them to pursue new educational opportunities and/or attain economic security.
Emergency Assistance: this special fund is for employees who are in financial need as a result of an emergency or crisis such as fire, natural disaster, disease, or death of an immediate family member.
Appreciation: exceptional productivity from all of our employees is what sets us above other retirement communities, but that doesn’t mean it should be taken for granted. Residents can make an annual gift to the Employee Appreciation Fund. At year end, a modest gift is given to each employee in recognition of their productive and outstanding service.
