Avesta raises $2.4 million for Silver Hearth Fund to aid seniors

Avesta Housing is proud to announce that it has exceeded its $2 million goal for its first-ever fundraising campaign, the Silver Hearth Fund. This money will help improve the lives of older residents who lack the resources necessary for a stable household consisting of safe, quality housing and adequate necessities such as food, health care and psychological wellbeing.

Thanks to the generosity of partners and friends, Avesta raised $2.4 million during the three-year campaign, which was launched by leadership gifts from Gorham Savings Bank, Bangor Savings Bank, and Norway Savings Bank. Kennebunk Savings propelled the campaign over the top with a $550,000 donation.

“Our donors’ generous support of Avesta Housing has touched lives, improved lives, and saved lives. Creating and maintaining a safe, quality home is the vital first step in building a foundation for a healthy and happy community,” said Avesta Housing President & CEO Dana Totman.
