Benefiting The Village Shalom Financial Assistance Program

2021 Village Shalom JC Ad

Thanks to you, our 2020 Ages of Excellence campaign in support of the Village Shalom Financial Assistance Program was a huge success!

The Financial Assistance Program benefits our 1 in 4 healthcare residents who have exhausted their financial resources or have come to us with no resources.  Village Shalom has never asked a resident to leave due to the inability to pay for the cost of their care.  This is not only unusual in the Kansas City area, but a point of pride for Village Shalom.

Two-thirds of the $1.6 million annual gap created between the cost of care, the reimbursement rate received by third parties, and our residents’ ability to pay is covered by Village Shalom’s General Operating Budget.  Only 1/3 of the cost gap is paid by charitable gifts.  Funds raised through the Ages of Excellence campaign are a critical component of the program’s viability.

Our commitment to our residents, and to our community, is what makes Village Shalom special.  

THANK YOU for your steadfast support!

With gratitude,

Allison Berey, 2020 Ages of Excellence Campaign Chair
Frank Lipsman, Board Chair
Matthew E. Lewis, President and CEO
