Founders Circle

The Founders Circle is a major gifts program that provides essential support to sustain and enhance the ongoing, day-to-day care at Monte Vista Grove Homes. Monte Vista Grove Homes owes much to a rich history of leadership from founders such as James Marwick, Cecil Gamble, Dr. Robert Freeman, Myron Hunt, and Mary Stewart. Each of these visionary pioneers and philanthropists helped create the remarkable legacy of Monte Vista Grove Homes, which stands strong on that foundation 94 years later.

Today our Founders Circle is comprised of generous, dedicated individuals and community leaders who are committed to providing superior services to equip senior adults to thrive and live with dignity throughout all levels of care and support. The donors who support Monte Vista Grove Homes in this way echo the heart and spirit of our original founders.

You can become a member in a given calendar year with a minimum unrestricted contribution of $1,500 to be paid in full by December 31. (Please Note: gifts in support of other programs such as special events, capital campaigns, in kind or capital equipment, endowment or other restricted purposes do not quality for membership in this program.)

Donors who join these ranks will be honored on our Founders Circle donor wall in Marwick Place, our central meeting hall, and celebrated at the annual Founders Circle event. Founders Circle members are key partners who help provide a vibrant community where senior adults continue to thrive as they “age in place” throughout multiple levels of high-quality care.
