Be an angel. Don’t hesitate.
Funds do sometimes unexpectedly run out from under a resident, through no fault of their own. When that happens, you can imagine how it’s natural for an older person to become anxious and fearful about the future. But with your gift to the Benevolent Care fund (below), we can ensure their ongoing needs are met and keep them secure in their home.
In addition to the funds below, you can establish a memorial fund in honor of a loved one, make a gift directly to The Crossings, or do almost anything you may have in mind (though please do check with us first, as nonprofit status means there are strict rules by which we must abide). You may of course give anonymously, or join our other wonderful donors in our Annual Gifts list.
- Benevolent Care — Some residents’ biggest fears are that they won’t be able to afford to continue to live in their home and receive the care they need. Your gift will help a resident remain with us and live with dignity
- Education — MRC (Methodist Retirement Communities), our parent company, promotes lifelong learning through intergenerational programs including Wisdom for Youth from Senior Expertise (WYSE) that benefits both our residents and high school seniors and juniors. We hope that WYSE can be a breakthrough in connecting high school students with seniors in meaningful ways
- Construction — Turning the MRC dream of serving more seniors into the reality of a new community depends on major donations for start-up capital. Without the support of couples, families, organizations and individuals who share our commitment to senior care in a faith-based environment, MRC might still be in the same building where we started, 55 years ago — and The Crossings wouldn’t even be here!
