Is Pleasantview a non-profit organization?
Yes. We are a non-profit organization and operate under the Iowa Mennonite Benevolent Association.
I would like to inquire about the waiting list, either for Independent or Assisted Living…how do I do that?
Please contact our marketing director, Mikayla Fisher, at 319.656.2421, ext. 160; her email address is MFisher@pvkalona.com.
If I want to give a gift to ‘name’ a portion of the project, what is the procedure?
Our guidelines for naming can be found in Naming Guidelines, and we will be glad to work with you in identifying how that happens.
What type of gifts are you accepting?
Cash giving is the simplest. However, gifts of stock, estate gifts, and other forms of planned and/or deferred giving are also welcome, and we’ll be happy to help in that process. Also, we have received one-time gifts as well as multi-year commitments; whatever your financial situation, we will work with you.

I really would like to help support this project financially; how do I do that?
Our advancement office (Larry Swartzendruber and executive director Jeffrey Schmidt) would love to discuss this with you! Both can be reached at 319.656.2421, ext. 149 (Larry) or 112 (Jeffrey). Email addresses are LSwartzendruber@pvkalona.com and JSchmidt@pvkalona.com. (Extensions of current commitments are also welcome!)
If I want to move into Assisted Living, what is the cost and the process?
Monthly costs are yet to be determined; a Market Analysis of facilities in surrounding communities has been conducted, and that information will be available soon. The admissions process is still in the works as well. A waiting list has been developed, and we are inviting you to contact us to be considered for that.
Which of the major phases will be done first?
Much depends on the weather and other factors. For various reasons it is likely that the Assisted Living portion of the project will begin first, although the intention is to do much of the project simultaneously.
What is the timetable for the project, start to finish?
Groundbreaking actually happened in early November 2021. Assuming all goes according to plan, portions of the project will be completed by late ’22 or early ‘23. The timeline for the entire project indicates completion by the summer of ’23.
What is the cost of the project?
We are finishing up the design stages of the project; at this point it is a total project of $13+ million. A portion of the project will be financed using qualified lending institutions; a significant portion will also include charitable giving. To date, more than $2.5 million has been committed through charitable giving.
