Creating an Aging-Friendly Community Capital Campaign
The campaign was organized into two phases, one of which has been completed.
- Phase I addressed two priorities:
- To promote an active lifestyle and community engagement early on so that seniors remain healthy and independent. In 2014, the former covered parking garage was converted into a 2,600 square-foot multipurpose space (seated capacity of 174) for conducting exercise classes, health workshops, and other healthy aging activities.
- To accommodate growing need, Kin On renovated the original skill-nursing facility to provide care for additional transitional/rehab patients with a higher level of care. This expansion was completed in 2016. Kin On is now able to designate up to 20% of its beds to serving short-term care patients and 80% to long-term care patients.
- Phase II addresses the need to adapt to the rapidly-changing economic and healthcare environment by offering housing options with personalized support services so that seniors can healthily and happily “age in place.” Kin On will add an Assisted Living and an Adult Family Home to its campus.
The project cost for Phase II is $7.2 million. We have reached the fundraising goal of $3.5 million through philanthropy in 2017. We will finance $3 million through organizational reserves and raise the remaining $700,000 through additional gifts from individuals, families, family associations, corporate supports and foundation grants.
We invite you to join us in the success of this life-enhancing initiative. We see the Assisted Living apartments and the Adult Family Home as integral parts of our not-for-profit mission and the completion of our vision to provide care along the entire aging continuum.
