John A Murphy Scholarship

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

In 1971 Legislator John A. Murphy uncertainly began a trek through our local legislature that would result in a 44 year-long journey of joy. Beginning in an uncharted wilderness, he crystallized a vision over time and bore down with laser-like focus on the most worthy of tasks; improving the living conditions of those in Rockland County that could not fend for themselves. He, and others, fought the never-ending battles surrounding the world of those with developmental disabilities and more recently homeless veterans.

This "man for all reasons" has just retired from the County Legislature and will now focus full-time on a myriad of other "human care" projects - as you might expect!  In honor of his impact, the John A. Murphy Human Compassion Scholarship has been established as an annual award for one male and one female high school student in Rockland County. A scholarship committee will select winners based upon their demonstrated history of community involvement and caring and selfless actions that benefit those who cannot fight for themselves.

We are Inspired!

We are extremely inspired by the generosity and friendship of so many people who give their support to the Venture Foundation and the fact that they come from all walks of life.  It would seem that  they all share one thing in common, a deep appreciation for the important work done by Camp Venture in caring for Rockland County’s intellectually disabled and mentally challenged population.

Throughout the year generous contributions are received regularly from families and relatives of Venture’s residents, and from those who have their special person in one of Venture’s excellent day programs, or its evening and weekend recreation/ respite programs.  

Moreover, so many individuals in our neighborhoods and communities, our local corporations and businesses, national companies, and family foundations have chosen Venture as their favorite charitable organization and continue to make their annual donations to the Venture Foundation.  Gifts range in size from $10 to $10,000 and much more, so that in return, the Foundation is able to support Camp Venture’s array of vital programs and services.

Almost 100% of our folks here receive Medicare or Medicaid. Unfortunately, government reimbursements are not always adequate in meeting the actual costs of providing the top-notch, quality of care that Venture aspires to provide for our people.  Fortunately, your charitable contributions help offset the shortfalls. They pay for the extras such as running the Summer Camp, the Therapeutic Equestrian Center, our Creative Arts and Recreation programs where the newest in technology and treatment offers enjoyment and enrichment to each person.

While you’re here visiting our website, we hope that what you see will inspire you to give, or if you are already one of our generous givers, to increase you donations to the Foundation however you are able.  

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and compassion toward those who need our help.   We appreciate you!   

Yours in Spirit,

The Venture Family
