ECUMEN BENEVOLENCE FUND
Providing for those among us most in need has always been our goal and practice. Regardless of financial standing, we believe all Ecumen residents deserve the same excellent care.
What is the Benevolence Fund?
A fund that will directly assist our residents who have exhausted their savings, helping them to stay in their Ecumen home. We will be building the Ecumen Benevolence Fund for five to seven years so we have enough assets to support Ecumen community members in need. The fund will be entirely dependent on donations.
Why do we need the Benevolence Fund?
At Ecumen, we see people losing their financial security with increasing frequency. These people are our residents and friends, and we want the best for them. When their savings are exhausted by care costs, we believe they should still be able to call Ecumen home.
How Can I Support the Benevolence Fund?
You can make a gift to the Ecumen Benevolence Fund today to support those among us most in need.
