“The act of philanthropy is a spiritual act, an expression of caring for one’s fellow human beings. It is a belief in the future and that the future can be good. It is investing in that future. It is helping to make the dream come true.” – Arthur Frantzreb

“To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being.” – John Lubbock

Special Events

Thurston Woods Village conducts various fundraising events throughout the year for the benefit of our residents. Our biggest event is the Annual Auction and Bazaar. Donations from residents, families, staff, businesses, churches, service clubs, groups, universities, and charitable minded individuals from Sturgis, St. Joseph County, and the Michiana area help make this event a huge success year after year. The proceeds from the auction and bazaar are used to help Thurston Woods Village continue to fulfill our commitment of providing quality senior living and healthcare services, and carry out our mission of honoring God through our ministry. Visit our special events page or contact Karen Flanhardt for more information.

Endowment Fund

The Thurston Woods Village Endowment Fund is a financial resource that can ensure no resident will have to leave because they are unable to pay. As the Thurston Woods Village Endowment Fund grows, our organization becomes less dependent on an increasingly unpredictable Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement system. Your help is needed, your gift makes a difference, and your generosity is deeply appreciated.
