Lutheran Elderhood Foundation,
a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization (tax ID 20-2734166) established in 2006, partners with donors to support the residents, projects, and programs of the Concord Reserve continuum of care. Our mission is possible through contributionsin support of programs, services, and capital needs, as well as charitable care for those who have outlived their personal resources. Your donations make a difference in people’s lives as they age, and enrich the community where they live.
Ways to Give
Many residents can no longer afford the full cost of their care. Our Charitable Care commitment ensures that residents will always have a home here. It also assures that all residents receive the same high quality care and other supportive services, regardless of their ability to pay. The number of residents in financial need continues to grow each year, and remains at the very heart of our mission of care.
Help Us Grow
We understand that our mission must expand our services to offer care that will serve residents today – and tomorrow. Your gift to our Campaign for Independent Mission helps us support the construction and final touches on our new independent living community – Concord Place. This expansion serves all our residents by providing a solid base of sustainability. Naming opportunities are still available for large and small enhancement projects.
An honor or memorial gift is a thoughtful and meaningful way to honor someone special in your life. Let us know the name of your loved one and the person to whom we should send an acknowledgement letter.
Gifts in Lieu of Flowers
Many people ask how they can make a memorial gift in lieu of flowers. Here is a sample of wording for use in an obituary:
“In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to Lutheran Elderhood Foundation, 2116 Dover Center Rd., Westlake, OH 44145 or online at www.concordreserve.org/support.”
