- Here to Stay Capital Campaign
It is with great excitement that we announce Grace Center is buying our current building, thus assuring that we will have a permanent home to serve our participants and their families! This site is strategically located with convenient access via a circular driveway for vans and small buses; has wide hallways and multiple oversized bathrooms to accommodate wheelchairs and handicapped individuals; includes ADA compliant shower facilities; and has separate rooms for exercise programs, music programs, massage therapy, woodworking, other craft activities, a full sized dining room, as well as quiet spaces for those who need to avoid excess external stimulation. A unique attribute that can not be easily duplicated elsewhere is a large fenced outdoor space for gardening, picnics, and raising chickens. Quite simply, there is nothing else in Corvallis that offers so much in one convenient location.
Owning our building will give us the luxury to remodel and update certain areas, allow implementation of new programs, and accommodate growth in the number of participants and staff without the concern of having to frequently renegotiate lease terms or possibly relocate at another time. This is a critical time in the history of Grace Center as an aging population will dictate an ever increasing demand for our services.
To date, we have finalized the terms of the sales contract, receiving zoning approval from the City of Corvallis, completed the needed infrastructure upgrades to the building, and have made the down payment. We are continuing to pay off the building in full through a bridge financing arrangement with original building owner Samaritan Health Services.
Now we need YOUR help! Our Here to Stay campaigned has raised over $500,000 as of December 2017. The total purchase price of the building is $1,000,000. Please consider making donation by clicking the link above or mailing a check to Grace Center with Capital Campaign in the memo. Please know that financial support from generous donors is critical in making Grace Center’s dream of owning our building a reality. Thank you for you support!
Memorial Courtyard to benefit the “Here To Stay” Campaign
Grace Center has created a memorial courtyard in 2017 in the beautiful landscaped area to the right of our front doors as you enter Grace Center. This courtyard was the Grace Center participants’ idea as a way to raise funds for Grace Center’s “Here To Stay” capital campaign. Special features of the memorial courtyard include a flag pole to fly the American flag, benches with custom plaques, & custom etched paver stones personalized with your name or that of a loved one. You can add a special message such as “in honor of…”, “in memory of…”, “a loving mother”. The courtyard will be a lasting symbol of your support of Grace Center & your love for family members & our country. Pavers, the flagpole, and naming rights of the courtyard remain available.
