Invest in Our Community

Working with Congress Heights and many other vibrant communities, Iona is poised to bring its Wellness & Arts Center to Wards 7 and 8.

Legacy Opportunities

Renovation: $1 Million
Covers the cost of the renovations and designing the space.

Start-Up, Outreach, and Programming: $1 Million
Includes the cost of furnishing the space, outreach to the community, the purchase of vans to bring people to and from the center, as well as recruiting, hiring, and training staff and covering costs of increased program capacity.

Endowment: $1 Million
More than 40 years of experience has shown us the importance of building an endowment that will allow us to fund ongoing operating and maintenance costs, plan for future needs and ultimately ensure the center’s future as a permanent addition to the community.

“Our family has believed in Iona for as long as I can remember. It was a priority for my parents—who led the campaign to build Iona’s headquarters on Albemarle Street two decades ago, and it’s a priority today for the next generation. The England Family Foundation shares Iona’s commitment to go where the need is greatest, which is why we are donating $500,000 over five years toward the new adult day center in Ward 8.”

– Rick England, President, Lois and Richard England Family Foundation

Renee Licht and Michael Sussman are donating a van in memory of Renee’s mother, Eva Licht Romano, who was a participant in Iona’s Wellness & Arts Center in Tenleytown until she passed away in April 2016.

“My mother would love knowing Iona is extending the same experiences she had to others who might not otherwise have those opportunities,” said Renee. The new van will provide transportation for older adults who are unable to travel to the new center from their neighborhoods in Wards 7 and 8 and for field trips to other nearby activities.”

Iona is poised to bring its model Wellness & Arts Center to Southeast Washington. If, like us, you believe that all residents deserve the very best, we hope you will join us in the creation of Iona East.
