ben endowmentProject Summary:
Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) serves thousands of seniors with very low incomes. They have a tight budget to live in, and sometimes need our help to cover an emergency or unexpected expense. PVM's Resident Help Fund, also known as Benevolence, is there to provide emergency financial support for seniors living at a PVM Viillage. 

Through gifts to the PVM Foundation Resident Help Fund, seniors who need some help to make ends meet this month won't go without heat, or have to choose between haivng food or medicine.

The Resident Help Fund can help in many ways . . 

  • A gift of $50 helps a senior afford an emergency ambulance ride to the hospital
  • A gift of $100 helps a senior schedule an eye exam her insurance doesn't cover
  • A gift of $250 helps a senior get a hearing aid or specialized orthotics

Please consider a gift to the Resident Help Fund and give hope to a senior today!

PVM Foundation has established three giving societies in honor of donors who have made lasting commitments in support of our mission. Members of these societies are invited to special PVM events as well as an annual donor recognition event, typically held in the spring. The PVM Foundation is deeply grateful to all members of these giving societies, whose commitment and generosity enables PVM to reach new heights in senior living and care for years to come.

Calvin Society
Commemorating Loyalty Through Planned Giving

The Calvin Society was established to honor all donors who have made a planned or deferred gift to support PVM. Types of planned gifts include beneficial designations of life insurance policies and qualified retirement plans, bequests and gifts of assets transferred to the Foundation or a trust in exchange for current income.

Clarence D. Sterling Society
Commemorating a Lifetime of Compassion

The Clarence D. Sterling Society honors a donor’s cumulative contributions over time. When a donor's total irrevocable giving reaches $50,000 or more (not including special event participation or in-kind gifts), this donor becomes a member. The Society is named for PVM’s first donor, whose gift helped establish our flagship Village, The Village of Redford, in 1945.

Rev. Dr. L.J. Peterson Mission Makers Society
Commemorating Commitment Through Multi-Year Pledges

The Rev. Dr. L.J. Peterson Mission Makers Society, established in 2012 to commemorate the passing of the former PVM President and CEO, is comprised of donors who have committed a multi-year pledge to PVM for $1,000 or greater, and two years or more.
