Read our brand new standards of practice for Ethical Fundraising with seniors.

The Village at Gainesville Foundation values the relationship we have with you. We know our interaction must be based on honesty, trust and respect. Because taking this high road is so important to us, we spent more than a year working with residents, volunteers, senior living experts and other research sources to create something special; the first-in-the-nation set of standards of practice for ethical fundraising with seniors. The fundraising profession has national ethical guidelines, but no such standards exist which deal with issues that arise for fundraisers working with older adults. Until now. We’re paving the way. As baby boomers age, others will follow and the issue will gain more attention. Through these best practices, we will live out our mission to enrich the life of each senior we serve. You and your family are important to us. We take this seriously because our vision is to be the trusted choice for seniors.

The Village at Gainesville Foundation CARES.
