Ways You Can Donate To Grand View Care Center

Grand View is a charitable, non profit organization and, therefore, your donations are tax deductible according to IRS regulations. This also means that there is no person or corporation to draw profits from our income.  All money taken in goes to the care center and this is one of the reasons that we can provide such high quality care at such a reasonable price. You should know that 100% of your donation will go towards one of these projects listed below, or towards a project of your specification.  Your donations help us provide the "extras" that makes the quality of life for our residents so high.


-We also have supporters who give a one-time donation. This, as well as all of the types of donations mentioned above, is put into one of the funds we have open, or the donor can specify how they would like the donation to be used.  It will be listed in our Senior Press and Four Score and More publications.  In cases where the gift is sufficient to purchase a particular item or complete a fund, a plaque will be made recognizing the donor and/or the reason for the donation.

 

-A brass plate displaying the donor and the person or event that  the donation is honoring is also placed in the front entrance hall for all donations over $300.

Ways Donations have help Grand View:

Grand Veiw's Shelter and Scenic Walkway - Grand View's shelter and scenic walkway have been created through chartable contributions, most notably from Roy Anderson and Tom Ganyo.  Through his donation, we have created a walkway around the grounds of Grand View for residents to walk or to be pushed in wheelchairs.  This walkway has several  seating areas; winds along a small creek and through a wooded area.  Our grounds are beautiful and this walkway allows residents to enjoy the beautiful Wisconsin weather and the serene rural setting.   This walkway was constructed so that additional gardens and attractions can be added as donations come in.  We also added a new covered Shelter at the beginning of the path.  Our scenic walkway is a work in progress and your donations towards this venture are appreciated.

 

Transportation Fund - Our fleet of vehicles is used to transport residents.  Donations were used to purchase a handicapped equipped van which was needed to transport residents to doctor appointments, community events, fun day trips such as fishing and picnics, and even to special family occasions.   Families are also able to use our vehicles to transport their loved ones. 

 

Auxillary - Grand View Auxiliary raises funds at the Holdiay Bazar and Fall Fundraisers.  Each year, our auxiliary donates the proceeds back to our residents' Christmas program and gifts.  The Auxilary also donates large items to help provide residents with extra amenities.  Past donations have included a lift recliner and  exercise equipment.
