DONATIONS

The building of the four cottages at the Village at Cloud Peak Ranch was made possible through the great vision, leadership and generous support of our donors.

Gifts, no matter how large or small, help us meet the growing needs of the people we serve. Contributions come from leadership or planned gifts, annual fund campaigns, grants and special events.

Green House Living for Sheridan is charged a 2.3% transaction fee on each online donation. Would you consider increasing your donation to cover this fee? We suggest 3 cents for every dollar. All online donations processed by PayPal. All major credit and debit cards accepted.

*If you are going to make what we would consider a Large Donation please consider sending in a check to avoid the transaction fee associated with online giving. Thank You.

DEVELOPMENT

Alternative Elder Living, Inc. (a 501(c)3 nonprofit umbrella organization for Green House Living for Sheridan) created a Development Committee to assure that the resources are identified and raised to meet the ongoing needs for the cottages. The Committee is made up of board members and volunteers that are committed to making sure that these beautiful homes provide the care, compassion and meaning for elders in the homes. Please take time to read the Development Committee’s newsletter.

ITEMS NEEDED FOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS:

    • 2 sets of patio furniture for Elders, families, and friends to enjoy our outdoor spaces at a cost of $2,500
    • Additional outdoor furniture at a cost of $1,000
    • Ice maker at a cost of $2,000

SUPPORT FOR ONGOING OPERATIONS:

    • Transportation fund for Elders to ride the Sheridan Mini Bus to local destinations
    • Holiday celebrations – currently we’re looking for support for a summer block party and 4th of July BBQ

UPCOMING PROJECTS:

Plans are being made to develop a wheelchair accessible bird path around the cottages to the wetlands where there is an abundance of red winged blackbirds, ducks and meadowlarks, to name a few. This will be a place where elders and their families and friends can enjoy the beauty and solitude of the area. Liz Howell is facilitating this effort and working with the city and the Audubon society. The plans will include a few benches and birdhouses along the way.
