The ability to choose where your donations go is at the heart of the Blue Heron Foundation Funds. Whichever fund you select, we can help ensure that your gift makes an immediate and lasting impact.

The three priority funds within the Blue Heron Foundation Funds are designed to give you a choice about the projects, programs and activities you support. Four distinct funds offer the opportunity to create visible change and a lasting legacy:
Art Of Living Well Fund
A gift to the Art of Living Well Fund allows you to direct your donation to specific programs and projects at Willamette View. Examples are artworks and Harmony Garden.

Employee Education & Development Fund
The Good Neighbor Fund for Resident Assistance provides financial security to individual residents if they live beyond their financial resources. Donations to this fund may also be used to support Willamette View’s healthcare and memory care programs.
Good Neighbor Fund
The Good Neighbor Fund provides assistance to residents in financial need, providing quality of life when one needs it the most. Gifts to this fund also support memory care and healthcare programs.

A note about Commemorative Gifts
Sometimes a gift is very personal—in memory of a loved one or friend, or to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. With a Commemorative Gift to the Heron Fund or the Alan Fibish Employee Scholarship Endowment, you can create a fitting remembrance that will further expand the legacy of the people you love.
Resident-Run Businesses Contribute
Proceeds from the three resident-managed businesses—Mart, Carousel and Pantry—also are donated to the Blue Heron Foundation Funds. The Resident Council, in consultation with the Willamette View Development Committee, determines which areas of greatest need receive these proceeds.
