How is benevolent care funded?

  1. The  Fund for Benevolent Care. Through donations in memory of friends or family members or gifts in honor of friends or family members.
  2. The Bell Trees of Christmas. Each Christmas, the Christmas trees at McKendree Village are beautifully decorated with ornaments made possible through gifts to the Golden Cross Fund for benevolent care.
  3. The Endowment Fund. Gifts permanently invested in the endowment, create a principal base that generates interest income. The interest alone is used annually to fund benevolent care.
