Broadmead Funds

Special Purpose Funds

Special Purpose Funds are created to meet specific needs of the corporation or its residents. Funds of this nature can be created by the corporation or the donor.

THE BRUCK FUND FOR SPECIAL NEEDS was established by a caring resident to enhance and improve the lives of residents on the healthcare floor of Broadmead, whether their stay be permanent or temporary. The income from the fund is to be used to provide for needs of healthcare residents beyond those covered by Broadmead. This fund will be used at the discretion of the Bruck Council (Medical Director, Director of Social Work, Director of Nursing and Chair of Resident Health Care Committee).

THE HOLLY HOUSE FUND was established in 1995 to support the maintenance and enhancement of this historic site which has become such an important part of community life at Broadmead. It is hoped that the interest income from this fund may in time be able to meet fully the needs of the house. The use of this fund is at the direction of the Board of Trustees.

THE STAFF ASSISTANCE FUND ENDOWMENT (SAFE) meets staff emergency needs for food, shelter, transportation, funeral expenses, uncovered medical costs, utility bills and to help in times with unforeseen disasters.

Resident Assistance Funds

Contributions to these funds help meet the needs of applicants and residents of the Broadmead Community who are unable to manage financially on their own. We presently have five funds in this category.

THE BROADMEAD RESIDENTS’ ASSISTANCE FUND (BRAF) was established in 1981 by the Broadmead Board of Trustees and the Broadmead Residents Association to assist residents who, for reasons beyond their control, may be unable to meet the financial requirements of the community. This fund is supervised by the BRAF Council and the Board of Trustees.

THE TAYLOR FUND: The assets from the former TaylorHome, the Friends predecessor of Broadmead, established this fund. Today the fund is used to assist applicants to Broadmead who may need help in meeting the entry requirement as well as for the financial assistance of residents.

THE HOMEWOOD FRIENDS MEETING FUND, established in 1976, consists of gifts to Broadmead for use by members of Homewood Friends Meeting in reaching Broadmead’s entrance or monthly fee requirements.
