The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living. The 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events, and fund clinical scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast.
Founded in 1997 by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 37 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states. These include 11 campuses in Kentucky. Morning Pointe of Danville Assisted Living will be the 12th community in Kentucky, estimated to open in late 2024.
Seniors Got Talent proceeds go toward clinical scholarships for students at partner colleges.
New this year, the Foundation will be also selling Seniors Got Talent tour T-shirts at the show for $20.
