Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee is pleased to announce that its Endowment Fund with the Manatee Community Foundation now exceeds $100,000. The fund was established in 2010 as a way for the organization to move toward self-sufficiency in light of declining government funding. These cuts are becoming more severe, so the Endowment Fund is critical for sustaining Meals on Wheels PLUS programs and services.

 

It accompanies other efforts for earned income that will help support programs for seniors and the hungry.

 

“The need for Meals on Wheels PLUS services is not going to go away,” said Kristen Theisen, Chief Development Officer. “The Endowment Fund is a way to be proactive and ensure that we can provide for our community. Our hope is that charitable-minded community members will contribute and leave a legacy that will allow Meals on Wheels PLUS to assist individuals in need for years to come.”

 

The goal for the Meals on Wheels PLUS Endowment Fund is that it will grow to $1 Million over the next five years. For details on the Endowment Fund, contact Kristen Theisen at 941-749-0100.
