Noble Horizons Funds

Noble Horizons owes its very existence to the foresight and generous spirit of a succession of donors. Forty years ago, the trust established by John H. and Ethel G. Noble bought not just the original 64 wooded acres where Noble stands—the  total acreage is now 110—but built the Cobble, Riga Residence and the first cottages. St. Luke's Chapel and a large portion of the Whitridge Nursing Wing came into being through the extraordinary generosity of the late Arnold Whitridge. A large bequest from the late Caroline Wall, provides an array of services geared specifically to the needs of cottage residents, designed to help them maintain their independence.

Thirty of Noble's 50 cottages were built by individuals and deeded to Noble. The exceptional paintings and sculpture throughout the campus were all given to Noble by the artists or collectors.

New generations of donors continue this tradition through outright gifts, bequests, planned gifts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, gifts of stock and real estate and gifts-in-kind.

Countless gifts have enabled Noble Horizons to provide its residents with the facilities and services they need to enjoy comfortable, secure and fulfilling lives in a beautiful setting and a life-affirming atmosphere.

Admission to any level of living at Noble Horizons is based on an applicant's need for our services and facilities. Candidates for admission are considered without regard to age, race, creed, handicap, gender, sexual-orientation or national origin.

Noble Horizons is a not-for-profit corporation. Residents pay a monthly fee or daily room rate, clearly defined in the resident agreement. There are no entrance fees, no lease and no buy-in. Noble Horizons participates in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

The Supplementary Fund

The Supplementary Fund covers one-time or occasional necessary expenses, such as eyeglasses, dental appliances, hearing aids or clothing, for residents with very limited financial resources.

The Village Fund

Donations to the Village Fund are used to improve facilities, initiate programs and purchase equipment not provided for in the operating budget. The Village Fund supports pet therapy, art, and health education programs as well as the library collections. Funds raised through our Annual Appeal support the Village Fund.

The Robert E. Julian Music Appreciation Fund

The Robert E. Julien Music Appreciation Fund was established in 2016 to honor the late cottage resident's contributions to the artistic life of Noble. The fund brings professional musicians and music educators to Noble for the enjoyment of all members of the Noble community. Making music a regular part of the life of memory care residents is a particular focus of the fund.

Established by the late Dorothea Elliott in memory of her husband, the fund provides scholarship support to Noble employees or their children who are attending college nursing programs.
