Incorporated: 2016 in OH
Also Known As: OPRS Foundation
Since its creation in 1986, Ohio Living Foundation donors have given more than $218 million towards its mission to provide charitable support for the people, projects and programs of Ohio Living. Donors may always designate their gifts to support primary and ongoing areas of concern, which include:
Life Care Commitment - Helps assure Ohio Living residents they will always have a home in an Ohio Living community even if, in good faith, they run out of funds meant to see them through. Ohio Living has lived up to this commitment since its founding in 1922.
Senior Independence - The central goal is to help older adults remain independent. Gift support provides assistance for a variety of services, including adult day care, home health care, personal care and hospice.
Capital Improvements - Includes ongoing renovations of current facilities and development of wellness centers and special care units. The Foundation helps meet Ohio Living's larger capital needs through campaigns that support specific projects.
Spiritual Life - Enhancing the spiritual lives of our residents. Nine of the Ohio Living campuses have chaplains on staff and most communities have their own chapel. Gift support helps provide programs for residents and families, as well as training for staff.
Endowment - Many donors want to ensure the programs they support now will be available for older adults in the years to come. Endowment funds are permanently invested to provide income for the long term benefit of Ohio Living, Inc. Only the income from an endowment fund can be used, leaving the principal preserved to permanently support the donor's selected purpose.
Hospice - Donor support enhances patient care, as well as Make It Happen, a wish-fulfillment program that provides special moments of joy and meaning for those nearing the end of their lives.
