Gifts at Work

Each year, hundreds of donors entrust their charitable gifts to our care. Here are a few powerful examples of your gifts at work in the lives of those we serve.

  • Residents & team members rally to raise nearly $20,000 for personalized iPods and Bose headphones in the Asper Special Care Neighborhood
  • A family member gifted all of her life insurance and her pension to Messiah Lifeways at Messiah Village in honor of the excellent care her mother received in a nursing neighborhood. The gift came in three parts and totalled more than $147,700 — an incredibly generous amount — and unexpected blessing!
  • Community donor gives $100,000 to update Chapel, including new chairs and a beautiful exterior wind barrier
  • Messiah Village residents rally to give tribute gifts in memory of Maggie, one of the campus' most beloved therapy dogs
  • In 2014, the Team Member Holiday Fund shattered all previous records bringing in enough gifts to give every Messiah Lifeways team member a Giant gift card worth $105. (If you'd like to make a gift to this fund, please call the Fiscal Services Office. Please note, these gifts are not tax-deductible.)

Donor And Recipient Testimonials In Their Own Words

"We support Messiah Village's benevolent care fund with financial gifts because it assures the security of fellow residents whose funds may have become limited. It not only benefits others but ensures our own future as well."

"First and foremost there is a great joy in giving. I recognize the abundant blessings in my life and I'm glad that I can share with others. I support Messiah Lifeways at Messiah Village because there is a real sense of mission."

A gift from the Witmer Charitable Trust allowed the purchase of a large, flat-screen television with computer interface for Carlisle Adult Day clients. Then director Miriam Moyer shared this comment, "Our clients are thrilled to see the Internet via this new tv and they love to see themselves on screen using DVD's we made from previous Adult Day event photos and images."
