The Heavenly Home
For many terminally ill patients, dying at home is not an option. Whether due to difficult living situations, a lack of family and friends who can care for them in their final days, or the limitations of insurance coverage, many people find themselves in a housing crisis at the end-of-life. In fact, studies have shown that although roughly 80 percent of Americans would prefer to die at home, only about 20 percent do.
The Heavenly Home, also known as Jerry's Heavenly Home, will change that for hundreds of people in Orange County. Our six-bedroom residential care home will allow people to complete their lives with peace and dignity, spending their final days making meaningful memories with loved ones.
Leave a legacy with your gift to The Living Legacy Endowment.
Imagine making a contribution that leaves a legacy for generations to come. This lasting impact can easily be made through a contribution to our Living Legacy Endowment. Considered one of the most advantageous sources of funding, our endowment enables us to provide round-the-clock care at the Heavenly Home at a reduced cost in perpetuity.
How Endowments Work
Endowed funds differ from others in that the total amount of the gift is invested. Each year, the Living Legacy Endowment is designed to keep the principal amount intact while using the investment income for care delivery at the Heavenly Home. With a spending policy of 5%, our current $2 million endowments will generate $100,000 per year. However, the cost of care in our 6-bed facility is $300-$600 per day per patient. Please help us grow our $2 million endowment to $5 million, ensuring affordable care for all facing the final stages of life.
Make your gift today or make a pledge, payable over up to five years. We also accept planned gifts, such as Charitable Remainder Trusts, gifts by will, appreciated assets, retirement plans, and insurance policies.
