St. Francis Community Foundation
Senior Living for Cheyenne County Fund
The principal and income from the Senior Living for Cheyenne County Fund will be utilized for charitable entities that provide or support senior living and/or long-term care in Cheyenne County, both for the aged and those in need.
Assuring that Cheyenne County continues to retain a good long term care facility is one of the primary goals of the Senior Living Fund. The foundation board has offered the county commissioners access to proceeds from this fund for the research into the possible ownership of the Good Samaritan Village facility by the county. If the county assumes ownership, proceeds could also be utilized to research renovations to this aged facility. The Advisory Board for this fund is the local Community Foundation Board.
This fund can be utilized for other senior living needs. Grants have been dispersed for improvements to the Senior Center. The foundation board is always seeking input from the community to utilize proceeds from this Fund to improve living conditions for seniors in Cheyenne County. Please contact board members with ideas for possible grants.
A grant of $1,400 from the Senior Living Fund was made to the St Francis Senior Center year ending 2011 for kitchen cabinets, remodeling of the kitchen and attached storage area. A grant of $3,086 for year ending 2012 purchased a new commercial refrigerator.
