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.
The ancient word for philanthropy is “philanthropia,” which means a voluntary action for the common good. Philanthropy will play a crucial role in how many people Augustana Care can serve.
