How Your Gift Helps

Fulfilling the social ministry of care for the persons we serve is made possible with the generous support of dedicated people like you. Lutheran SeniorLife provides a continuum of services so that they may experience a more Abundant Life® regardless of their physical condition or financial circumstances.

As the number of seniors continues to grow, so too does the need for benevolent care for the women and men receiving services within our communities and home-based programs.

Each year Lutheran SeniorLife provides substantial benevolent care to residents who have outlived their savings. Throughout Lutheran SeniorLife, 65 percent of nursing care residents are on medical assistance and Lutheran SeniorLife accepts reduced payments that fall short of the cost of their care. Together, benevolent care, subsidies and allowances total nearly $17 million annually.

Annual sustaining gifts and contributions for special projects support benevolent care, quality of life enhancements, and programs and services for elders to live safely and independently.

Gifts to the Foundation can be directed to benevolent care or specifically to Passavant Community, St. John Specialty Care Center, the LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly) Programs, VNA, Western Pennsylvania, Lutheran Service Society, and RoseCrest Assisted Living and Memory Support Center.
