Ways to Give

Samaritan Program

The Samaritan Program of Virginia United Methodist Homes, Inc. (VUMH) is a benevolent fund which provides financial assistance to residents who have outlived their monetary resources and, through no fault of their own, can no longer afford the full cost of their care.

Benevolent assistance has been given in VUMH communities since 1948. In Fiscal Year 2016, the Samaritan Program provided $851,000 in benevolent assistance to residents. Over the past ten years, the amount of benevolent care support has exceeded $8,000,000.

The Samaritan Offering

Through the support of the Virginia Annual Conference, our offering is in the United Methodist churches annually from Mother's Day through Father's Day.

Estate gifts, gifts from businesses, foundations, organizations and individuals are accepted continuously throughout the year.

Additional Giving Opportunities

You may choose to contribute to capital projects at our family of communities or underwrite special programs dedicated to improve the quality of life for our residents.

Your gift may be made to honor or memorialize a friend or loved one and no gift is too small. Every gift is deeply appreciated and sure to have a direct benefit to residents of our communities.
