The United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) Foundation mission is to promote the wellness, dignity, and independence of seniors by supporting the residents, staff, and communities UMRC serves.
The UMRC Foundation was formally established in 1998 as the fundraising arm for UMRC. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all gifts to the UMRC Foundation are tax-deductible. We manage and oversee fundraising efforts and provide our supporters with opportunities to make donations to support the Benevolent Care Fund and the works of UMRC. These contributions come in the form of annual contributions, memorial and honorarium gifts and program support.
Supporting the Benevolent Care Fund is a critical part of our efforts. This fund provides relief from worry for our residents by providing the necessary financial assistance to allow them to remain in their homes and continue to receive the same quality care they expect and deserve. Our benevolent care promise – that no resident will be asked to leave because they outlived their savings – is one of the truly unique and special aspects of UMRC.
