Margaret Bancroft Annual Fund

Bancroft’s Annual Fund is vital to bridging the gap between public funding for services and the true cost of care for the people we serve. We rely on our friends and families to support us and partner with us to help perpetuate Bancroft’s mission and vision.Unrestricted funds give Bancroft the ability to allocate resources where they are needed most during the current year. Your gifts impact the lives of people who need us most, providing hope for each one to live life to its fullest potential.

Family Executive Council

The Family Executive Council was established to bring together families interested in ensuring the future of Bancroft and connecting with the organization’s leadership. Chaired by Lisa and Craig Parles, parents of Andrew, the families meet several times a year to learn about new initiatives and gain insight into operations and strategic vision.

“The families of the individuals we serve, support and treat, play a critical role in the progress and quality of life of their child or loved one through contributions of their time, programmatic ideas and philanthropic gifts,” said Toni Pergolin, Bancroft President and CEO. “The Family Executive Council is a partnership with family members to ensure Bancroft is positioned for future success.”

Being a member of the Family Executive Council comes with a responsibility to serve in many ways. Members serve as ambassadors for Bancroft in the area in which they live and within their loved one’s program. They may be asked to host or attend an event with fellow Bancroft families and donors as well as serve on other committees. Each family contributes $5,000 in addition to other contributions they make throughout the year. All funds raised are designated for Margaret Bancroft Annual Fund.
