Donations

Find out how charitable giving can help seniors at Fellowship Community.

From our humble beginning on a Center Valley dairy farm, Fellowship Community has grown to an organization that provides a continuum of care and services to more than 400 residents each day. Our mission has remained focused on improving the quality of life of our residents, and we have not wavered in our commitment to provide lifelong care to those who make their home with us. But we can’t do it alone. Because of the commitment of those who donate to charity, we can offer a sense of security to the more than 25% of our residents without funds, as well as comfort and mobility to residents with special needs, support for our highly trained and dedicated front line staff, and so much more.

There are many ways to give, and your charitable gifts allow us to meet our obligations and pursue innovative ways to provide care. Special areas you may wish to support include:
The Fellowship Fund
A gift to the Fellowship Fund supports every aspect of the Fellowship experience, providing opportunities to improve our residents’ quality of life, as well as the ability for the Community to be responsive to emerging opportunities and challenges. Gifts to this area can benefit a particular program or be used wherever the need is greatest, providing immediate impact.
The Spirit Fund
Through the years, charitable care has been a hallmark of the Fellowship experience. Today, Fellowship annually provides charitable care totaling over $4.8 million to our residents who have outlived their funds. Contributions support residents in personal care who are not eligible for government programs, and help to cover shortfalls in reimbursement for those in skilled care.
Tribute Giving

A tribute gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a particular occasion, honor a person’s life and accomplishments, or acknowledge someone special. Memorial benches, tree plaques and pavers also provide an opportunity to commemorate your loved one and beautify the campus.

Tribute gifts of any amount to Fellowship Community can be a deeply gratifying way to recognize someone that touched your life, while helping to enhance the quality of life of our residents.

There are several types of gifts to help you pay tribute:

  • Gifts in Memory — Create a lasting memorial for a friend or loved one who has passed away by making a gift to Fellowship Community. A memorial gift offers a meaningful way to pay lasting tribute to the memory of a loved one while also extending sympathy to the family.
  • Gifts in Honor — Show those closest to you the important role they play in your life, or recognize your gratitude for a caregiver by making a gift in their honor to support the mission of Fellowship Community.
  • Gifts in Celebration — Celebrate life’s milestones — birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, Mother’s/Father’s Day, or any special occasion — by making a tribute donation to Fellowship Community (maybe even in lieu of presents). Your honoree will appreciate the thoughtful gift in support of our ongoing work.

In addition, tribute pavers, tree plaques and benches provide an opportunity to commemorate your loved one and beautify the Fellowship Community campus.

  • Engraved Pavers — Pavers may be purchased in our beautiful park in honor or in memory of a loved one with a donation of $300. Each paver may be engraved with up to three lines of 13 characters per line, including spaces. A portion of your donation will be used to maintain the natural surroundings of the Park.

  • Tree Plaques — Existing trees may be dedicated in honor or in memory of a loved one for a donation of $500. Each plaque may include up to four lines of 16 characters per line, including spaces.

  • Tribute Benches — Benches for the campus may be purchased in honor or in memory of a loved one for a donation of $1,000. Each bench may include up to 2 lines of 25 characters per line, including spaces.

Scholarship
The Robert Zentz Memorial Scholarship Program was established to “grow our own.” Continued education increases opportunities for our staff to advance their healthcare careers and develop and refine their skills.

The Fellowship LPN Scholarship Fund was created to help Fellowship grow the next generation of talented, caring and compassionate nurses. At least one annual scholarship will be awarded to offset the cost of tuition, books and fees for a current employee interested in participating in the Licensed Practical Nursing program at Lehigh Carbon Community College.

Recipients are selected based on leadership abilities, evidence of our core values in their daily living, and the positive impact advanced education will have on our residents.
The Legacy Fund and Planned Gifts
Endowed gifts provide a stable income stream to ensure Fellowship’s long-term viability and continued excellence in improving the quality of life of our residents. Planned giving vehicles provide you an avenue to make a larger, more impactful gift and leave a lasting legacy, enabling Fellowship to continue to meet the needs of the aging with compassion, comfort and Christ-centered care.

Won’t you join us in this important work? You can rest assured that when you donate to Fellowship, your gift will be put to good use, whether designated for a particular area or for the area of greatest need.
