Neighbors helping neighbors
The JKV Foundation uses contributions from residents and supporters of John Knox Village to enhance the lives of residents, provide financial assistance for residents who have outlived their resources, and fund projects that benefit all residents.
Founded in 1992, the JKV Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity. Gifts and testamentary bequests to the Foundation are deductible for income tax and estate tax purposes.
The foundation is governed by a nine-member voting board made up of three JKV residents, three members of the JKV board of directors and three members from the community.
Contributions to the foundation can be designated as financial assistance for residents who have outlived their resources or for specific activities such as the Spiritual Life Council, the library, the JKV Medical Auxiliary, the Rose Garden, the Hobby Shop, Village Friends and Visually Impaired Persons and Partners (VIPPS) or it can become part of the general fund to benefit all village residents.
- The Oak Tree Society is a membership society of residents and friends organized for the purpose of financial support of the JKV Foundation.
- Oak Tree Society members receive a golden acorn that can be worn on their Village name badges. The acorn is symbolic of small beginnings that grow to become great and enduring accomplishments.
- Annual membership fees are $5 per individual or $10 per couple. Larger one-time gifts of $500 or more are recognized with lifetime membership as a Sponsor or Patron. A gift of $50,000 designates the donor as a Benefactor of the JKV Foundation.
