Maple Knoll celebrates annual fund success!
Maple Knoll Communities Inc. a non-profit, continuum of services provider in Springdale, is dedicated to supporting older adults so they can live happy, healthy and active lives so they can live life the way they want to in retirement.
Maple Knoll Communities Inc. includes the retirement communities of Maple Knoll Village and the Knolls of Oxford, Sycamore Senior Center, three affordable HUD Residences, Maple Knoll Home Health Services, WMKV 89.3 FM Radio Station, a Montessori Child Center, and the Hemsworth Wellness Center.
In 1989, Maple Knoll Communities started an Annual Fund Drive to support their Future Care Fund. The Future Care Fund, a benevolent care program, was the solution for some of Maple Knoll’s residents who were experiencing financial worries. No resident has ever been asked to leave if she/he has depleted their financial resources. The Future Care Fund gives residents the security of knowing they will always have a home. Throughout the years fundraising efforts have expanded to include programming support for Sycamore Senior Center, WMKV 89.3FM Radio and The Maple Knoll Montessori Program.
Each year a campaign theme and goal are set to raise money for The Future Care Fund. With a theme of “Stepping Up” the goal was set at $1,000,000 for the 2013 campaign. John Bloomstrom, Maple Knoll Board Member and Annual Fund Chair lead staff and 22 resident, community and board member volunteers in a tireless effort to make the goal. Maple Knoll Communities is proud to announce that over 2,100 donors making 5,800 gifts helped reach over $1 million in contributions.
On Sept. 9, Maple Knoll recognized donors and volunteers with an ice cream social and program announcing the campaign results. With ice cream sponsored by Cincinnati Eye Institute and music provided by WMKV 89.3FM, a great evening was had by all.
