Current Appeals. If you would like to make a gift to Moravian Hall Square, please consider giving to one of our Current Appeals.

Home Giving is a Community Tradition Current Appeals

Perhaps the greatest title in the world is PARENT.

And perhaps the greatest gift they give is removing the burden of their health care from their families and friends. But when a resident can no longer pay for the care they need at Moravian Hall Square, the Good Samaritan Fund makes it possible to cover the cost of their care.

We need your financial support to continue the 30 year tradition of funding “care for life” for residents of Moravian Hall Square who have outlived their financial resources. Please make a contribution in honor of YOUR parent or loved one.

Your gift makes a difference!

2018 Dates to Remember!

Dates are important – the kind that you mark on your calendar.  With the change of a year, it can be a time to do a financial check-up, especially on things that impact you and the people and things you value.

Like you, Morningstar Living reflects with fondness and gratitude on the blessings and highlights of last year.  Indeed, we received many generous gifts of volunteerism as well as financial support.  We can never say thank you enough times!

As you make plans for your financial good health and where to allocate your resources, please consider some of the resources available through our organization.  

On February 20th, we are offering a great program called Control: Power Up that features distinguished attorneys in the Lehigh Valley who will offer good information about the ways to assert your intent in legal documents, assignment of duties and your estate planning.  Click here to register.

Additionally, please be mindful of new legislation passed by Congress and its impact on your financial well-being.  You might want to be planning now to fully understand any implications and best course of action for matters that meet your charitable intentions.

If you have an IRA and qualify for Required Minimum Distribution, please remember that April 1st is a date to remember.  There are consequences if you don’t withdraw your RMD in a timely fashion – don’t be caught being late!  If you want to learn more about using your RMD for a qualified charitable contribution to Morningstar Living – click here.

You’re the best date – give a call if you want to make a date to get more information!
