The Pine Rest Foundation exists to provide Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services with financial resources and community support so its ministry of love and healing in Christ's name can be enhanced and continued.
The Pine Rest Foundation was established to help Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services advance the healing ministry of Jesus Christ through its provision of behavioral health care services. Since its inception, the Pine Rest Foundation has made grants of over $5.1 million to Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services. The Pine Rest Foundation oversees a general endowment generated through annual membership gifts, proceeds from special events, bequests, and other outright or deferred gifts.
The Foundation started the general endowment by initiating annual membership drives, and membership gifts continue to fuel growth in the endowment. In addition, the Foundation hosts a number of special events, including the Golf Classic and the Pine Rest Foundation Dinner, presenting the Jay Van Den Berg Leadership Award to individuals who have made significant contributions to Pine Rest and the Foundation through their leadership in giving of their time, talents, and resources. The Pine Rest Foundation is also the beneficiary of bequests and planned gifts (such as charitable remainder trusts or charitable gift annuities), and receives gifts of securities, real estate, memorial gifts, proceeds from individual trusts, and insurance policies.
