Ingleside Homes Receives $10,000 Award from TD Charitable Foundation for Benevolence Fund Program
Many Senior Residents Depend on Generous Donations to Bridge the Gap Between Their Retirement Income and Rising Cost of Housing. Local Businesses Can Make a Positive Impact on the Lives of Seniors Through Giving Programs.
Ingleside Homes Inc. is a non-profit agency that provides senior living options and social services to over 250 residents housed within independent retirement apartments and assisted living facilities. Over $8.5 million in funding has been raised by local companies and organizations to support Ingleside Homes since 2003. "We award over $130,000 in benevolence funding annually to assist seniors in our retirement community who would not otherwise afford the service fee or meals," stated Larry Cessna. "Donations from our business community positively and directly impact many seniors."
The Benevolence Fund underscores the core values behind the mission of Ingleside Homes. Ingleside has never had to evict a resident due to their inability to pay for services. The funds provide meals, transportation, gap insurance, shelter and activities to support the elderly so they can remain independent longer. Larry Cessna acknowledged, "The average cost of a one-bedroom apartment in Wilmington is $999/month. When a senior only receives $771/month in social security income, the financial gap can only be met through the generosity of others."
Together, TD Charitable Foundation and Ingleside Homes Inc. share an important role in sustaining vibrant and thriving communities in the Delaware area. TD Charitable Foundation carries a legacy of supporting nonprofit institutions and their important work in the local community. This recent $10,000 award is a welcomed addition to the generous support from many donors.
