Ecumen Giving

In these unprecedented and uncertain times, what we know is this: Ecumen remains committed to the safety of our residents, team members, and communities. You can join us in supporting our COVID-19 preparedness and prevention efforts. A gift of any amount will help Ecumen further support those among us most impacted with protective gear, resources for social connectedness, and more. Your generosity has a direct and immediate impact. Thank you!

The Ecumen Giving Fund serves the greatest and immediate needs of our communities, especially during this unprecedented time.
If desired, you can designate your gift to a specific community.

A gift of any amount has an immediate impact that supports the greatest needs of our community, such as:

$25 – Supports the safety of 10 Ecumen caregivers with protective equipment
$75 – Increases efficiencies by adding one portable hand washing station
$100 – Allows four residents to stay engaged with meaningful activities
$500 – Provides technology for virtual connections with loved ones


The Family Helping Family Fund supports team members who face financial emergencies due to a catastrophic event or extenuating circumstances such as the current COVID-19 outbreak.


The Ecumen Honor fund, previously known as the Benevolence Fund, supports Ecumen customers who need financial assistance.
