The 2016–17 Sewanee Community Chest (SCC) Fund Drive is underway. Sponsored by the Sewanee Civic Association, the SCC raises money yearly for local charitable organizations serving the area. This year’s goal is $116,850.
This week we shine the spotlight on the Arcadia at Sewanee.
A long-standing need on the Mountain has been for residential living and care for older adults. Arcadia at Sewanee will serve older adults in a residential living community with services that encourage active, healthy living; respect each individual’s dignity, rights and independence; value ongoing educational, artistic and community service offerings; and offer opportunities for intergenerational relationships.
This is a new organization having been formed in 2016 and is in its planning stages. The SCC will donate $1,000 to Arcadia at Sewanee to help with organizational expenses such as legal fees for the 501(c)(3) registration, website preparation, consultation services from senior living advisors and other expenses associated with beginning a nonprofit organization.
Since 1908, the goal of the SCC has been to help citizens by funding the community. Through SCC funding, 26 local organizations can help those caught in the cycle of poverty, improve quality of life through outreach and community initiatives, and provide support for children with a variety of programs. The SCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and donations are tax-deductible. Send your donation to Sewanee Community Chest, P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375.
