A $5.5 Million Campaign to Secure the Future of Benevolent Care at Asbury Methodist Village

The Asbury Methodist Village (AMV) community is stepping up to provide continued security for residents in need.

As part of Asbury Methodist Village's 90th Anniversary celebrations in 2016, we asked members of the Asbury family to reflect on what it is that makes the community such a special place. For many, it is our Benevolent Care program, which ensures no residents will be asked to leave if they outlive their resources through no fault of their own.

Even with the strong support of donors each year, projections indicated the rapid increase in need for Benevolent Care would lead to a funding shortfall beginning in 2019. We knew it was critical, not only to continue Annual Fund efforts to support current resident needs, but to grow the Benevolent Care Endowment Fund, which is invested in perpetuity to support long-term needs.

Residents and board members stepped up, and the Beyond 90 Years campaign was born. Through many generous gifts, we already have made great strides toward our $5.5 million goal.
