The Auxiliary’s Spring Sale on May 4th raised $6,188.57, and made some new friends! Thank you to all the residents, staff, volunteers, trustees, & community friends who helped make this event a success!


We are very excited for our Annual Founders Gala on June 22 at Descanso Gardens, emceed by Fritz Coleman. This year marks the special anniversary of MVGH’s 95th year in service! Many Sponsorships have already been secured and tables are selling fast! This gala will sell out quickly, so it’s none too soon to secure your tickets!

If you’re interested in volunteering, sponsoring, advertising, donating auction items, or otherwise partnering with us for this event, please contact Katie Hamrick, listed below.


Half way through the year, our Founders Circle committee is officially half way to our 2019 goal! We have received pledges accounting for 50% of our $140,000 ambition. Let’s finish strong! We are deeply blessed by our committee and its leadership, and by every member of this special group who enable the daily existence and excellence of Monte Vista Grove.

The Founders Circle is major gift membership program that provides essential annual support to sustain the high-quality care provided at the Grove. If you know of a business, individual or family member who might be interested in making a Founders Circle gift ($1,500 minimum), please contact Robin Harvill or Lindsey Mansis, listed below.


We have begun our centennial count-down by setting ourselves an ambitious goal of growing our Cornerstone Society to 100 members by our 100th anniversary in 2024. Over the next 5 years, we hope to bolster this segment of our support, often thought of as our “roots.” This level of giving strengthens Monte Vista Grove at the core, creating a firm foundation from which our “branches” of care and services can grow long and sturdy.

The Cornerstone Society is comprised of individuals who have made provisions for MVGH in their estate plans. To be included in this group, or if you have questions or would like more information about naming MVGH in your will, or about local attorneys who could update or review your will or trust, please contact Robin Harvill, listed below.
