This year’s event will be held the afternoon of Thursday, September 12th at Traditions at the Glen. We are pleased to note that Sodexo Quality of Life Services has agreed to be the Tournament Sponsor for the seventh consecutive year – thank you Sodexo!
The Good Shepherd Communities Foundation Fall Golf Classic is a source of funding for programs that enhance the quality of life of senior citizens. Your support of the tournament assists the Foundation in funding senior healthcare and the Living Care Fund, which assures that Good Shepherd’s assisted living residents will never be asked to leave, even if their personal finances have been depleted. It also funds education programs, providing scholarships to our valued staff who are pursuing Licensed Practical Nursing degrees. Additionally, proceeds from the Golf Tournament support the BOCES School-to-Careers Partnership Program which offers valuable work experience opportunities for students interested in careers in healthcare. Your sponsorship and participation in our golf tournament greatly impact our ability to serve older adults in our community.
The benefits of joining us in this effort are great. Our senior population is one of our community’s greatest resources and for many years they have been the source of support and growth of local businesses. Now it is our turn to help them and ensure they are well cared for.
Thank you for your consideration of our sponsorship request. All sponsorship commitments should be returned by Friday, July 5th. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Terry Cortese-Green, Foundation Executive Director at 607-484-6075 or at tcortese-green@GSCFoundation.org.

Living Care Fund
Residents are guaranteed a home for life with the promise they will receive the same quality residential and healthcare services, even if they encounter unforeseen financial hardship. This fund is a charitable fund that bridges the gap between the actual cost of care in the adult care and assisted living residences and an individual’s available resources. Many people choose to remember a loved one through a donation to the Living Care Fund. Memorial contributions to this fund are encouraged and appreciated.
Shepherd’s Mission Fund
Your gift to this fund enables us to anticipate and meet the needs of seniors through the development and operation of a broad range of innovative services and facilities. We will design and explore opportunities for growth, collaborative relationships and affiliations with other community members to enhance and enrich senior living and to adapt to the ever-changing environment.
Employee Recognition Fund
The Employee Recognition Fund serves several purposes. Many employees at Good Shepherd Communities cannot afford the high cost of education. This fund supports tuition reimbursement to help our valued team members grow as professionals and develop as people. This fund also supports employee recognition where we celebrate the dedication of our excellent staff and their commitment to Good Shepherd Communities and its residents. Finally, the Employee Recognition Fund has a history of providing emergency assistance to staff in times of need such as during the flood and to employees who have lost their possessions due to fire.
These are used for the area of most need within Good Shepherd Communities. Unrestricted gifts support the work of the Foundation. These gifts help to ensure that the Foundation will continue to grow its assets and investments, and will have the ability to respond to the needs of Good Shepherd Communities, Good Shepherd Fairview Home, and Good Shepherd Village at Endwell.
