Foundation Donors

Your Support Makes a Difference!

When you donate to the Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, your tax deductible gift helps us to further our mission to advance the quality of life for persons in post-acute/long term care (PALTC) through inspiring, educating and recognizing future and current health care professionals. It’s all made possible by the support from people like you!

The PALTC Foundation gratefully acknowledges those who made the Foundation’s work possible in 2020.

The Foundation could not move forward or fund its programs without the support of individuals and organizations that share our vision. The Foundation relies not only on support received from our corporate and state chapter sponsors but also from individual donors.

A Special Thanks for All Our Generous Supporters!

The Legacy Fund

In order to build a financial base to sustain and develop the Foundation programs, the Foundation Board of Directors developed the Legacy Fund. The funds in the Legacy Fund will be conserved and prudently invested to produce income to support our programs.

At the end of 2013, to help achieve his dream, Dr. Brubaker made a contribution to the Foundation’s Legacy Fund, the newly established, board-restricted fund. “I have experienced firsthand several health care systems that have very healthy endowments. The programs have been much more successful in fulfilling their missions than having to depend upon budgeting additional dollars in their yearly operation’s budgets.” “To me, endowment-type funds can be an effective method to help finance special projects that are consistent with AMDA’s mission”, said Brubaker.
