Charitable Funds. Moravian Hall Square is proud to have several Charitable Funds that assist our residents, enhance our facility, and help our staff members grow.

Home Giving is a Community Tradition Charitable Funds

Good Samaritan Fund – a benevolent fund that provides sustaining support to community residents and clients who have exhausted the means to pay in full for their care.  This is a priority need that includes people residing in all levels of neighborhoods and some home-based client services.  Over the years, funds from bequests, planned gifts and some special events have been invested so that income can help support this critical need.  At the heart of Morningstar Living’s mission is to provide care for life for those we serve.  Help from this fund to residents and clients provides peace of mind and reassurance that our commitment to our mission is sincere.

General Endowment – a long-term investment fund where income may be used to support capital projects, facility improvements or other funding as directed by the Board of Directors for the Morningstar Living Foundation.  Funds are stewarded and distributions are considered on an annual basis.

Staff Advancement Fund – Used annually to support a variety of educational and enhancement opportunities for employees of Moravian Hall Square and Morningstar Living.  Expanded funding benefits qualified employees through allocations of scholarships, grants, service recognition and training opportunities.  A committee of residents and staff oversees scholarship requests from full and part time employees.

Wellness Trust – Department leaders may request funding support for specialized programs, training, enrichment or equipment needs based on grant narrative and anticipated outcomes.  Intent is to encourage staff to proactively impact the quality of life for residents, family, volunteers and staff and to be a resource for senior care issues in the greater region.

Capital Fund Appeals and Wish List –  From time to time, there are special fundraising campaigns for campus enhancements, capital projects and special equipment needs.  Funds are solicited in a structured time period and held in a restricted fund account until the goal is reached and the funds can be released for its designated purpose.  A campaign to build a new game room, library and rooftop patio on the Moravian Hall Square campus is the most recent example of a large-scale capital campaign.
