Employee Initiated Giving

Employee Initiated Giving*

We encourage all our employees to give back to their communities, and many of our team are deeply involved in a wide variety of organizations at both the local and national level.

To applaud this dedication and passion, a portion of the annual donations made by our Ventas Charitable Foundation are channeled into an Employee Charitable Fund. This fund provides grants to organizations that are directly nominated by our employees, with preference given to those organizations where employees are actively engaged. More than 90 percent of requests have been met since the fund was established.

Since the program began,


has been given to support those organizations

where our employees are directly involved.

In 2016, grants were made to more than 30 organizations including Misericordia Heart of Mercy, PAWS, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Girls on the Run Louisville, Hesed House, Ladies of Virtue, and the National Runaway Safeline.

* 100% of Ventas employees, including 100% of the employees of Lillibridge Healthcare Services a wholly-owned subsidiary, are eligible to nominate organizations for consideration of Ventas Foundation support.
