Ecumen Benevolence Fund
Sign up for Changing Aging News
As a not-for-profit organization, Ecumen’s values shine through in the work our staff does to serve others every day. Through our many products and services, we enhance the lives of seniors and enrich the lives of their families. Financial circumstances for seniors on limited incomes change over time, and we want to be there to support them.
The Benevolence fund joyfully supports the essential needs of our residents through generous donations from our employees, board members, Ecumen Partners, and community donors. This fund empowers our staff at the communities to identify opportunities for residents most in need, and help fulfill them through dollars gifted to the fund.
Through your continued generosity, we are able to provide assistance to people such as Mary needing a comfortable new pair of summer sandals, or Delores a trip to the family summer wedding with a caretaker, and a new easy chair for Mitch for increased independence. We want to continue this important aspect of our mission and can only do this with your help.
