The Friends of Pleasant View Foundation Board
To enhance the quality of life of the residents by promoting effective philanthropy for the benefit of the lives touched by Pleasant View Nursing Home.
To promote and grow the Friends of Pleasant View Foundation Endowment and Special Project Funds in order to be able to select and implement a variety of projects with the hope of creating an even greater living experience for the residents of Pleasant View Nursing Home.
“I decided to join the Friends of Pleasant View Foundation because there was a need to help make the lives of the elderly in Green County just a bit better by providing things that didn’t fit into the budget of Green County. I am most proud of the gardens on the West side of Pleasant View. It gives the residents and families a place to gather and see the beauty of nature. Most people want to keep our taxes low in the county so there are limited funds to do the extras that make life nicer for our older folks. The Foundation can provide those extras through our Special Project Fund and through our Endowment. I believe Pleasant View is a valuable resource in the County and provides quality care for our older folks who can’t care for themselves. I would urge all people to support Friends of Pleasant View Foundation because we can make a difference in the lives of our elderly.”
“To be cared for with dignity and compassion in the twilight of our time here on earth is a universal desire. I hope my service on the Pleasant View Board contributes in some small way to this mission. This desire is consistent with the mission and practice at Pleasant View Nursing Home. This I know from my years working to care for the residents at the home and now my time serving on the board.”
“I serve on the Foundation Board because Pleasant View provides good food and a staff that pays attention to residents. It is a good place to recover and have therapy.”
“I have had loved ones who were residents at Pleasant View, and we were very satisfied with the excellent care and services. I am glad to be a part of the Board and give back to Pleasant View. When asked to serve, I did not hesitate to say yes.”
“I am proud to be a Foundation Board member in order to support and grow the endowment fund and all of its possibilities. I envision proceeds from this fund enhancing the lives of Pleasant View residents far into the future.”
“When serving on the County Board, I became keenly aware of the importance of Pleasant View to Green County residents. Residents of Green County have continued to recognize Pleasant View’s importance by overwhelmingly supporting several referendums to offset operational costs over the past decade. It provides top-notch care regardless of financial ability. The Foundation supports many special projects which enhance the experience of those using this facility, whether it’s for short-term rehabilitation, or for long-term care. I’m particularly supportive of enlarging the endowment fund, which will guarantee financial support for this much needed community facility into perpetuity.”
“When I first was approached about joining the Friends Board, I was somewhat hesitant, due to the heavy involvement I have with other organizations. But having volunteered at our great facility for quite a few years, assisting with Club 48 meals, early breakfasts, Patio picnics, and other events, I realized this was just an extension of what I currently do, but on a new level.With several new faces on the Board, I see the Friends as a healthy adjunct to the facility and look forward to new innovations and events to further the Pleasant View mission.”
