Retirement Community in The Village at Woods Edge.

Your Gift Makes All the Difference

There are countless ways to ensure that the Franklin and Western Tidewater regions will always be known for exceptional retirement living. Contributions of time, resources, or monetary gifts are greatly appreciated. Our “It Takes a Village” fundraising campaign has raised nearly $2 million to date, which means a very bright future for residents at The Village.


Our campaigns focus on providing the best services and care available to our residents. In recent years, we have been able to update kitchen and dining services, common areas, grounds and apartments due to generous donations. You can view these updates in our photo gallery.

As a donor, you may specify a particular program or fund to which your gift will be applied. You may also use your gift as a tribute to a loved one or to recognize a special birthday or event.


There are plenty of wonderful ways to give. Here are just a few.

Cash & Pledges

Make a pledge and meet your goal over a five-year period through monthly, quarterly, or annual payments. You can even set up your own payment schedule. We will be pleased to send you reminders and can also arrange a direct draft from your bank.

Real Estate & Securities

Gifts of appreciated assets make excellent charitable gifts. By donating appreciated stock, for example, you can avoid taxable gains while enriching your community. Stocks are gladly accepted as a gift, and we can assist you in transferring assets.

Customized Gifts

We appreciate many types of customized gifts such as items donated in-kind or real and personal property. A member of our campaign committee will be glad to visit with you about our guidelines for accepting these special gifts.

Deferred Gifts

Deferred gifts can be structured through a variety of vehicles, including wills, trust arrangements, or other income-producing vehicles such as life insurance and annuities. Please consult with your tax, legal, or financial adviser. We will be pleased to work with you to structure a gift that best suits your tax- and estate-planning circumstances.
