Priority Needs

General Support. 

Senior living and senior care continue to evolve and change.  A gift to the General Fund ensures support for where the need is greatest. 

Financial Assistance

As individuals live longer and expenses grow exponentially, seniors find that their funds and savings are not going as far as initially planned.  It is our goal to ensure that every resident can remain at Dow Rummel as long as needed.  Gifts to the Financial Assistance Fund are used to offset the monthly living expenses of residents needing this support.  

Outdoor Beautification. 

Studies show that being outdoors improves overall well-being.  Creating outdoor spaces that are positive and uplifting is vital to the overall care and services that our residents receive.  Gifts to the Building and Grounds Fund allow us to create spaces that will draw residents and their families outdoors.   

Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care. 

As an organization guided by spiritual values, the Chapel, and all the programs and services that surround it, are very important in the overall care that is provided at Dow Rummel.  Residents and their family members find great value in the Chaplains that Dow Rummel employ.  Gifts to the Chaplaincy Fund support all aspects of spiritual care services and programs.   

Employee Support. 

Many times our residents and families seek a way to show their appreciation to the Dow Rummel staff caring for their family members.  The Employee Support fund is used to recognize all employees and to support them in their professional development.   

Senior Programs. 

Helping residents remain healthy, active, and engaged comes in many forms.  From offering various exercise machines, aquatics programs, social activities, musical performances, and community trips, the list is long for all the ways to provide seniors with options to engage and remain healthy and active.  Gifts to the Program Fund ensure that seniors find various options available to them.   

Intentional Giving

Stock Gift

Making a gift of stock or equities to Dow Rummel can be a great way to give, and to benefit your tax situation. The more your stock has appreciated in value, the more tax benefit you can realize.

IRA Gift Provision

A direct distribution from an IRA can be a great way to give! For the donor, the gift counts towards the annual required minimum distribution (RDM), it avoids receiving a distribution as a taxable income, and it could lower the donors income tax rate. 

Planned Giving  

Including a charitable organization like Dow Rummel Foundation in your estate planning can be significant in creating a life legacy. If Dow Rummel Foundation is already included in your estate plans, please allow us teh opportunity to name you as a Heritage Partner.
