The mission of Pines of Sarasota Foundation is to generate the financial support for the capital, programmatic and endowment needs of Pines of Sarasota, a nonprofit senior care campus. Pines of Sarasota was founded by the Kiwanis Club of Sarasota in order to care for seniors who needed healthcare in a residential setting, but lacked financial resources. Pines has grown into an organization that provides a range of direct services for nearly 3,000 elderly and disabled seniors, preschool children and adults. Our services include long term skilled nursing care, assisted living, Alzheimer's/Dementia care, rehabilitation therapy, early childhood education, respite care, education for healthcare workers and family members and transportation services. More than 75% of those in skilled nursing care are paid for by Medicaid.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Accomplishments: 1. Funded $1.4 million of critical services and capital improvements for senior residents and rahabilitation patients at Pines of Sarasota. These improvements included the opening of the new, 4,000 sq. ft. Manser Family Rehabilitation Center, complete remodeling of the Fabulous Finds Thrift Shop and a newly designed and landscaped campus entrance. 2. Helped secure financing to purchase 8.6 acres of land adjacent to the south of the Pines of Sarasota campus. This is an historic event representing the first addition of land in Pines' 65-year history. 3. Produced a friend raiser and fund raiser, the Wit and Wisdom of Aging, which generated the largest gross and net revenue to date of any Pines fundraising events. Our event was recognized as a Readers Choice finalist of the Sarasota Herald Tribune, in the special events category. Goals for 2013 1. Seek $2 million of direct, community support to pay off the mortgage of our newly acquired South Campus property. Hopefully we will find a donor who would wish to make such a gift and name our South Campus. 2. Develop and implement an enhanced marketing and communication effort for Pines and the Foundation. 3. Identify the partnerships and collaborations through our Pines Education Institute which will have the greatest potential to provide health care professionals, and at home caregivers, the most current training and educational programming focused on dementia care for the elderly.
