The Golden Belt Community Foundation is pleased to announce that a new endowment fund has been established to benefit Almost Home, Inc.  This partnership between the community foundation and Almost Home, Inc. gives individuals and businesses interested in supporting and sustaining this new organization providing residential and hospice care a vehicle for their charitable giving.  
“Some individuals wish to support an organization through endowment giving because they know their gift will be invested and continue to support their favorite charity in perpetuity,” said Christy Tustin, Executive Director of the Golden Belt Community Foundation, “and this fund gives donors that option.”
Endowment funds are funds permanently set aside and invested for long-term use, the principal of which is protected, and the earnings of which benefit Almost Home directly. Generally, up to five percent of the endowment fund is granted back to the organization annually. By establishing this fund, Almost Home will benefit by reaching more potential donors, being able to offer free estate planning, and receiving annual distributions to support their mission. When organizations work through community foundations, they can build their funds to provide lasting support and take advantage of investment economies of scale and planned giving expertise.  
Almost Home, Inc. provides quality health care with a personal touch in a loving, home-like environment.  As a non-profit facility it is the first of its kind in Great Bend. Almost Home, Inc. offers lower resident to caregiver ratio providing its residents with the best care 24 hours a day. Almost Home, Inc. is a place where residents can thrive. Almost Home, Inc. offers respite care, adult daycare, and end-of life care as well as residential care.
Anyone may contribute to the Almost Home, Inc. Endowment Fund as gifts are accepted in any amount. The Golden Belt Community Foundation accepts gifts in the form of cash, stock, real estate, and can assist individuals with leaving a gift through their will or trust. All donations are tax-deductible. Donations may be mailed to the foundation and donors should note that their gift is to benefit Almost Home, Inc. in the memo line.
With over $14.5 million in total assets, the Golden Belt Community Foundation has been assisting donors with their charitable giving goals and working with area non-profit agencies since 1996 in an effort to build better and stronger communities in Rush, Barton, Pawnee, and Stafford counties.
