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.”

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.”
