Shepherds Endowment Society
The Shepherds Endowment Fund was established in 2007 within the Good Shepherd Manor Foundation to provide a continuing source of income for Good Shepherd Manor and to do so in perpetuity.
Endowment gifts are not spent but are invested to generate annual income far beyond the life of the donor. The investment income provides a stable funding source for future operating expenses of Good Shepherd Manor.
“The SES helps the Manor have long-term financial security, which means long-term care for these special men.
We want other families to feel the sense of contentment and peace knowing their loved one will always have a home providing safe and compassionate care.”
SES Members – Ed and Joan O’Brien, sister of a former resident
The Shepherds Endowment Society makes a disbursement annually into the budget of Good Shepherd Manor. These disbursements represent the gifts of love from your spirit of generosity.
They concretely manifest the Gospel message to “love one another” and the commitment to care for the “least of our brothers.”

Next 50 Years Fund
Can’t give at the levels of SES? You can still be a part of supporting the Manor during our 50th Anniversary year! Through the Next 50 Years Fund campaign, we are now striving to ensure the next 50 years and beyond for Good Shepherd Manor by growing a robust fund within the Shepherds Endowment Society (SES). This fund will enable donors at ALL giving levels the opportunity to invest in the future of GSM for perpetuity.

The Shepherds Endowment Society encourages and invites you to consider a gift at one of six membership levels.
|Member Levels||Current Gift||Deferred Gift|
