Chicago, III.

Charitable giving to The Admiral at the Lake provides an opportunity to have a meaningful role in The Admiral’s spirit of generosity and make a direct impact on the lives of those who live and work in this community.  Our charitable goals include supporting residents who outlive their financial resources, providing opportunities for subsidy to those who have lived a life of service and are unable to meet their financial obligations to the organization, to enhance existing resident programs and common spaces in the building, and to support The Admiral’s involvement in the surrounding neighborhood.

Collington is celebrating its 30th anniversary inspired by its resident’s vision to live purposeful lives. Over the next 5 years the community will implement a strategic plan committed to increasing civic engagement, building partnerships, stewarding resources, and bolstering health and wellness services. The Collington Foundation, which seeks to improve quality of life for older adults, will underwrite these efforts by partnering with donors and volunteers interested in supporting residents in need of financial assistance, educational initiatives for caregivers and caretakers, meaningful artistic and cultural experiences for older adults, and the provision of exceptional health and wellness services for residents and older adults in the local community. Donations, in addition to volunteering on behalf of the Foundation, are greatly appreciated and welcomed year round.

A Culture of Giving … Kendal Board, residents and staff are giving of time, talent and treasure as they participate in the development of life at Kendal. The board of trustees are volunteers in their service of leadership. Residents are looking ahead to a day when some of their peers may no longer be able to afford the full cost of the community and have begun raising funds to assist them.

Hanover, N.H.
In Kendal at Hanover’s history, residents have established a tradition of generous support for our community.  They have helped to make possible many of the achievements, big and small, that make the community what it is today.  Our modernized Health Center, the Cadbury Fund, for resident financial assistance, the Farmhouse, concerts in the Gathering Room, the perimeter walkway, are just a few of the positive outcomes of the generosity of those who live here.

Ithaca, N.Y.
Culture of Giving … The Kendal Corporation’s philosophy of philanthropy goes back over 30 years, when community-minded people made a gift for the establishment of the first Kendal community. This tradition continues at Kendal at Ithaca.

Lexington, Va.
Kendal at Lexington owes its very existence to the vision and generous giving of its founders — the vision, commitment and generosity of its founding board and residents, and the benefactor who graciously gifted the 85 acres of land on which Kendal at Lexington now sits. More than a decade ago these individuals envisioned a community that would appeal to and serve Lexington retirees who were finding it necessary to leave the area for retirement living. When Kendal was a dream and a concept, visionary men and women gave more than $1,000,000 as start up funding to pursue that dream. Through their dedication and hard work, Kendal at Lexington was created.

Oberlin, Ohio
Giving … warms the heart and enriches our community. If we watch or read the news, it seems that natural and man-made disasters are happening all around the world. Events, often beyond our control, can lead people to question the future and leave optimism in short supply. Yet here at Kendal, there is a sense of calm and of a secure future. We believe that this flows from the efforts of board, residents, staff, and caring friends working together.

Kennett Square, Pa.
Giving has been an integral part of Kendal-Crosslands Communities ever since it’s inception over 30 years ago. Kendal at Longwood came to be as the result of the generosity of Margaret Thomas who left her estate to the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting “for the use of aging Friends and others in sympathy with us”.  A portion of her gift was appropriated as a seed money grant, to purchase the land, pay for architectural work and for an executive director to start Kendal at Longwood on its way.  Subsequently, it has been the generosity of numerous others that has ensured the success and viability of Kendal~Crosslands Communities.

Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

Charitable giving for the benefit of Kendal on Hudson provides an opportunity for our contributors to play a meaningful role in Kendal’s spirit of generosity, unique to the interests and preferences of each contributor.
