Colonial Foundation: Enriching Lives through Charitable Giving

A Foundation for the Future
In dedication to our mission and philosophy of enriching the lives of all generations, the Colonial Foundation was established as a means to receive charitable gifts that benefit those served by Colonial.

Through the generosity of donors, the Colonial Foundation works to guarantee and support the futures of Westover, Berkeley Square, Colonial Schools and Colonial Community Services.

More Than a Donation
Helping enrich the quality of life for others carries a spirit and significance of its own. Your gift supports our promise of excellence in all we do. It can be:
  • A meaningful way to memorialize or honor a loved one
  • A way to show appreciation  for a special employee or volunteer

The Choice is Yours
As a donor, you have numerous options. Your gift can be directed toward a fund that carries special personal meaning to you.
  • Life Care Fund: A fund established to ensure the continuing care of Westover and Berkeley Square residents who might outlive their financial resources.
  • Unrestricted Fund: Our most flexible and varied fund, these contributions are used for wherever the need is the greatest within Colonial’s entire group of services and communities.
  • Restricted Funds: These funds specifically benefit projects at either Westover or Berkeley Square.
  • Colonial Schools Fund: Gifts to this fund support Colonial’s intergenerational early childhood education programs. Tuition increases remain modest and continuing enhancements remain possible through the help of the Schools Fund.
  • Employee Assistance Fund: This fund benefits Colonial employees who experience short-term, unexpected financial emergencies.
  • Nursing Scholarship Fund: Colonial has established this fund to honor our employees, whose dedication to caring for others sets a standard of excellence at Colonial. This scholarship will support individuals who wish to pursue a career in caring for others and further our commitment to living, learning, and leading in the greater Hamilton community.

Choose Your Type of Gift
We are pleased to announce that we are now able to accept contributions made via Visa or Mastercard.  To make a gift using your credit card please call the Foundation at 513-785-4794.  The Colonial Foundation also accepts gifts in most forms such as cash, stock and property, all of which are tax deductible within the extent of the law.

Recognition and Remembrance
Qualifying donations will be memorialized on Foundation Donor Walls at Westover or Berkeley Square. When $1,250 has been received in a person’s memory, his or her name will be permanently recognized in either the Memorial Gardens at Westover or the Memorial Walk at Berkeley Square.

Commitment and Advancement
With the continuing support of generous donors, the Colonial Foundation is able to cultivate programs that increase awareness of both Colonial’s mission in the community and those who benefit from it. Our staff and volunteers are committed to professionalism and prudence, ensuring charitable gifts are utilized to their best advantage.
