McFarland Area Outreach Endowment is a 501(c)(3). A board of four officers governs it and the Director of Senior Outreach is an advisor. The Endowment has three main purposes:
They provide individual grants to seniors on an anonymous basis through the Senior Outreach Department. A general example are things that fall out of the scope of available programs such as unpaid medical expenses, utilities, unexpected expenses and medications.
The other use is to support programs made available through the Senior Outreach Department by proposal and request. A recent example was paying for workbooks for an evidenced based program on chronic health management.
The third use is to hold funds for a capital project fund. This is for future expenses by the senior outreach department including specialized equipment or development of a senior space.
Donations can be made anytime throughout the year. In addition, we do a letter fundraiser once a year. For more information, please contact Lori Andersen, Director of McFarland Senior Outreach, by phone at 608-838-2395 or email Lori Anderson.
