In this first year of our affiliation, there are a lot of “firsts” to share! Welcome to our first gratitude report. We replaced the word “annual” with “gratitude” to remind us every day of how all this is even possible.
It is because of you, our supporters, that we can help those we serve. In these pages, you can read about the significant impact you made on older adults in our communities.
Another “first” was the decision to pay tribute to donors online, instead of within the printed report—which would have doubled its size. We hope you find the online lists more user-friendly and reflective of a wiser use of funds.
Meet our 1896 Society members Joe and Jeanette Iverson
Joe and Jeanette Iverson, residents of Apple Valley Villa Apartments recently joined the 1896 Society. When asked why they became donors, they said, ”This place just felt right…and you can tell the staff love their jobs. We decided after our experience that we would include Augustana Care in our charitable giving.”
