At Presby’s Inspired Life, we deeply appreciate your gifts of any size. Support at any level of giving will help us continue our mission to provide exceptional living experiences to adults 62 and better, of all backgrounds and financial circumstances. Here are a few of the Presby’s Inspired Life giving choices available to you.

Join others in helping those most in need cut to live life in all its fullness.

The impact of your generosity can truly help transform lives — here’s why:

  • Nearly $5 million in benevolent care supports residents in our market-rate senior communities who have difficulty meeting the cost of their own care due to ever-increasing health care costs.
  • 73 percent of residents in our Affordable Housing communities report individual annual incomes below $10,000 — less than the federal poverty level.
  • Each year, Presby honors requests for assistance with medical bills and other health-related expenses from residents facing financial hardship.
  • There exists a $3 million gap between the cost of skilled nursing care and what is covered by medical assistance.

Help us help others. Make a gift today. Donations of all sizes make a difference.

Across our Life Plan and Affordable Housing communities, we are committed to helping our team members live their best lives possible.

That commitment inspires the Team Member Crisis Fund. The Team Member Crisis Fund provides immediate, short-term charitable assistance to team members, their spouses, and/or their legal dependents to ease the uncertainty of hardship created by unforeseen personal tragedy, including death, fire, illnesses or natural disaster.

Donations by caring team members and residents, as well, will ease the burden of such misfortunes by providing much needed financial aid for food, clothing, shelter and many other vital needs. Those who make the thoughtful decision to contribute to the Team Member Crisis Fund feel confident that their generosity is an instrument of hope that can uplift and provide assurances for those facing a critical need, during a most difficult time.

Participation in the Team Member Crisis Fund will be welcomed with ease and convenience via payroll deduction and each contribution will be acknowledged in a timely manner by the Office of Philanthropy, in conjunction with the Partners in Caring program. We are pleased to share that team members may also make a donation of Annual Leave hours.

Compassion. It’s at the heart of everything we do.
Since its beginning in 1955, Presby’s Inspired Life has evolved into one of the region’s most respected faith-based not-for-profit organizations — providing independent residential living, personal care, memory support, short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to more than 3,000 adults 62 and better, across four market-rate and 30+ Affordable Housing communities.

As an organization with a demonstrated commitment to caring for older adults who may have limited financial resources, Presby relies upon and appreciates charitable gift support.

The open-hearted compassion of our board of directors, other concerned individuals, faith leaders and our partners throughout the corporate communities strengthens our ability to offer benevolent assistance to residents in need of a helping hand.

Help us sustain a legacy of service. Share your blessings in support of the Compassionate Care Fund!

The Compassionate Care Fund was established in 2015 as a unique, historical opportunity to celebrate the milestone of Presby’s 60th anniversary by reaffirming its commitment to ensuring quality residential experiences to residents who need us most.

The leadership of Presby’s Inspired Life greatly appreciates “unrestricted gifts” to support evolving needs across our ministry in any given year. Gifts of Grace empower Presby to meet the costs of equipment acquisition, technology, nutritional programs, memory support initiatives and innovative training for team members. We encourage benefactors to partner with us to support this essential fund so that we may be nimble and respond to creative opportunities, urgent needs and emerging dreams for the benefit of more than 3,000 residents at our senior living communities. Click here to give your gift today!

From the earliest days of Presby’s Inspired Life, our founders and leaders have recognized the need to sustain benevolent support and a strong culture of volunteerism in order to maintain excellence across our market-rate and Affordable Housing communities for seniors.

The President’s Circle* serves to recognize a distinguished group of benefactors whose leadership donations and fervent commitment make possible the fulfillment of our mission to deliver exceptional experiences to those entrusting us with their care.

*The President’s Circle consists of any constituent who has given $10,000 or more cumulatively over the last 10 years. To learn more about how you can become involved in this unique program, please contact Lynn M. Johnson-Porter at 610-260-1153.

Presby’s Partners in Caring program is a team member giving initiative that offers our unique opportunity to philanthropically support the needs of Presby residents. Gifts, made via payroll deduction, provide team members with a simple yet meaningful, way to give back beyond their everyday roles.

Gifts made through the Partners in Caring program support benevolent assistance and life-enrichment programs for residents across Presby’s four market-rate senior communities and 30+ Affordable Housing communities. Approximately 200 team members participate in this inspiring program. If you are a Presby’s Inspired Life team member and would like to learn more about how to enroll, please contact Page Zettlemoyer at page.zettlemoyer@presbysinspiredlife.org.
