The Collington Foundation: History

Mission: To provide and inspire philanthropic support for Collington Life Care Community

Vision: To harness our generosity of spirit to nurture the goals and aspirations of all who live, work and serve in our community.

After Collington Episcopal Life Care Community was founded in1983, the Fellowship Fund was established (1984) through a gift by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. Its purpose was to support and encourage diversity at Collington – particularly economic. A resident can apply for assistance through the finance office.

The Collington Board of Directors created the Collington Foundation in 1996 as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization that would raise funds to support Collington’s mission. Under IRS Sec/ 509(a)(3) Collington is a “Type l” supporting organization. The foundation was created to receive all gifts and disperse all scholarships and grants. The board of directors is legally and fiscally responsible for stewarding all the funds, with support by the Collington administration. In 2011, Collington joined Kendal, a system of not for profit senior living communities.

The Ramsey Scholarship fund was established in 2017 through a legacy gift from the Ramsey family. Scholarships are awarded to older employees to further their study in their field. There is a small arts and culture fund as well.

The CEO of Collington, Ann Gillespie, serves as President of the foundation. The President manages the operational activities. The Chair of the Board, currently a resident, leads the board. The board consists of eight resident members and three community members. Two of these members represent the Collington board of directors on the foundation board. All board members are approved by the Collington board of directors. The board meets quarterly, October, January, April, and July.

There are four standing committees on the board –

  • a finance committee to review the budget and financial results.
  • an awards committee to set policy and review all scholarships and grants.
  • a development committee to support the director of philanthropy in communication, cultivation of donors and fundraising initiatives.
  • an executive committee, to consist of board officers and other members as needed in decision-making.

The foundation is supporting Collington’s mission (to improve the lives of its residents and staff) as it completes its long-range plans and in making ongoing projects possible and future capital improvements.
