Financial gifts of all shapes and sizes are used to support two main initiatives here at Clark:
The Clark COVID-19 Care Fund: Caring For Those Who Care
During these unprecedented, unsettling and uncertain times of COVID-19, our primary focus is the increased compassionate care by our remarkable staff who are working one-on-one with residents and families.
We have taken many steps to ensure that we are providing person-centered care to maintain health and prevent social isolation and loneliness. Enhanced technology, spiritual care and life enrichment activities and family communication are some of the many initiatives during this challenging time. For our valued staff, who go above and beyond every day, we have implemented hazard pay, temporary benefits program and purchased large quantities of personal protective equipment and supplies to maintain and sanitize our campus.
Your generous gift will make a tremendous impact, provide compassionate staffing for our residents, and peace of mind to our employees who are doing everything in their power to support those requiring the highest level of care.
The Clark Promise (The Benevolent Fund)
One of the greatest fears seniors have is outliving their assets. Even with the wisest care and planning, unforeseen challenges can burden a family beyond belief. As healthcare costs skyrocket and life expectancy continues to rise, it is an all too often grim reality. Their funds are depleted.
The Clark Promise gives peace of mind and assurance that if financial challenges arise, Clark will be there—with grace and dignity. Each year, Clark assists over 40 residents through benevolent care with an anticipated annual cost of up to $750,000. Our goal of an endowed fund of $15 million by 2025 will generate enough funds to sustain this promise.
Community Enhancement and Programming
Music Therapy, our Montessori for Aging and Dementia program, and so many other important special projects enhance the quality of life for our residents. Through the support of our donors, in recent years, we've purchased a grand piano, a new sound system for the Clark Chapel, and Carillon bells that play beautiful music throughout the Clark neighborhood. These are the little extras that add so much joy to our community.
