As part of its not-for-profit mission of service, Asbury strives to provide a home and care to all residents, even those who have outlived their financial resources. Each community also endeavors to provide additional programs and services to enrich the lives of those served today and in the future.
For these needs, each community turns to Asbury Foundation.
Asbury Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that secures philanthropic support to enhance the quality of life for seniors served by the Asbury system of communities. Over the past 5 years, Asbury Foundation has secured over $30 million in new gifts and pledges through a comprehensive and well-coordinated Development program. Since Asbury’s founding in 1926, Asbury residents have never been asked to leave due to financial hardship through no fault of their own. This promise of security is made possible through Asbury Foundation’s Benevolent Care Annual and Endowment Funds. Additionally, the Foundation supports vital capital and operating needs for the nonprofit communities across the Asbury system.
The Vice President of Development will work closely with the Foundation President & CEO to advance the Foundation’s efforts and lead to a new level of achievement. Most importantly, S/He leads the major gifts program, overseeing the personal cultivation and solicitation visits by the Asbury Foundation team that are integral to the Foundation’s success. In 2016, nearly 4,000 donors made gifts to Asbury, with 463 of them having contributed gifts of $1,000 and higher. The V.P. of Development will have their own portfolio of prospects for both outright and planned gifts. S/He will provide oversight to team members focused on communications, annual giving, and donor relations.
It’s all in keeping with Asbury’s mission to do all the good we can.
