In our 16th year of service to the seniors of Lincoln, we give our grateful thanks for the support we have received from our residents, local businesses, and our Community Association.
This year the Foundation will fund $86,000 in grants that will benefit many of your senior friends and neighbors. Through a variety of organizations these grants provide large print and audio books, food distribution, life-saving training, counseling and advice services, emergency equipment, medical supplies, and tax preparation assistance.
A significant focus for this year is the Foundation’s expansion of an existing program available to in-home family dementia caregivers. Because of the of 24/7 demands, we fund relief known as “respite care” that provides these caregivers with time to attend other important matters such as their own medical appointments, exercise activity, or to meet other personal and family needs. Recognizing that respite care is also important to other kinds of caregivers, the Foundation is looking to fund services for them as well.
The Lincoln Hills Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. With no personnel costs, the LHF is able to cover its operating expenses through proceeds from the Bingo games we operate throughout the year. This in turn enables the Foundation to pass 100% of all donations to fund grants that assist the senior community in Lincoln.
Bingo games happen 10 times a year in the OC Ballroom, with dates and times published monthly in the Compass Magazine and the Sun City Senior News. Our website www.lincolnhillsfoundation.org gives dates and times for Bingo. Bring your friends and have a great time.
You’re invited to hear the panel discussion on April 6th -10:00AM, Presentation Hall (KS). We’ll be talking about what we are and what we do for Lincoln seniors. On May 3rd, I hope you will participate in the Big Day of Giving (BigDoG), a 24 hour, one-day event of financial support of non-profits in our 4-county area.
We also invite you to consider being a volunteer for the Foundation. We are in need of men and women with website, marketing, fund-raising skills, or other non-profit experience. We could really use your help.
President, Lincoln Hills Foundation
