White Horse Village Announces Executive Director and New Management Team Members
White Horse Village, a nonprofit active senior living community, announces Susan Abtouche will serve as Executive Director of the White Horse Village Foundation, Inc. The Foundation is a nonprofit entity that receives and administers donations to enhance the living experience at White Horse Village.
Susan Abtouche, Vice President of Mission Enhancement of White Horse Village, is a certified professional fundraiser with over 18 years of experience in the senior living industry. Previously, she led the development of successful fundraising programs at Ann’s Choice by Erickson Senior Living and Pennswood Village. During her tenure at White Horse Village, Abtouche and the Mission Enhancement team have increased the occupancy rate from 87% to 97%. In addition, Abtouche and the Foundation Directors have doubled the size of the Legacy Society and increased donations by 25%.
“I look forward to leading the White Horse Village Foundation and expanding opportunities for funding and continued growth,” comments Abtouche. “Donations have made, and continue to make, a positive difference to the quality of life in our community.”
The new organizational structure of a public Foundation opens possibilities for attracting external funding to support innovative programs for senior living while continuing the traditional community-based programs. In 2023, Abtouche will lead efforts to increase membership in the newly established Legacy Giving Society and introduce a Charitable Gift Annuity donor product.
