Help Secure Our Future
The Friends have established several Endowment Funds which are invested and never spent. The proceeds from the Endowment Funds are used solely to support the Milwaukie Center and are key to keeping the doors open in the future.
All gifts received in honor of friends or family members are added to the Milwaukie Center Endowment Fund. In addition, $2,000 from Thursday evening Bingo proceeds are dedicated to the Endowment Fund each year. The Friends of the Milwaukie Center also receive bequests and other gifts specifically intended to build these funds.
The funds are:
The Milwaukie Center Fund – supporting programs and services at the Center
The Nutrition/Transportation Fund – proceeds go directly to the Nutrition and Transportation programs
The Scholarship Fund – helps fund class registration fees for people in need
The Fran Whitehead Rose Garden Fund – established to support the maintenance of the Sara Hite Memorial Rose Garden
The Joan Young Fund – the current Center Director is able to dedicate the proceeds from this fund for special projects
The Doris Hurst Special Needs Fund – our social services staff utilizes the proceeds from this fund to help clients in need
