There are so many ways to be part of our mission at Milwaukee Catholic Home – find your way to make an impact on the lives of older adults in Milwaukee.
For a non-profit organization, an institutional budget simply cannot cover all of the expenses related to providing truly exceptional quality. The yearly generosity of our donors is what has enabled Milwaukee Catholic Home to continue its 100 year tradition of excellence and service.
Milwaukee Catholic Home is committed to remaining a vibrant and uplifting place to live and to maintaining its premier standing among competitors. This means reinvesting in the common spaces on our campus. Over the years, many improvements and upgrades have been made possible through the charitable gifts of residents, their families, and members of the larger community who value our tradition of excellence.
Leaving a Legacy
Those who have been impacted by our extraordinary care and supportive community often choose to express their gratitude by making a legacy gift to Milwaukee Catholic Home. Many residents make a charitable gift commitment through their estate planning. More recently, Milwaukee Catholic Home has also been blessed by those residents who have decided to give all or part of their entrance fee to the community.
One of the easiest ways to create a lasting legacy at Milwaukee Catholic Home is by contributing to one of our three endowments. Endowments provide a steady, ongoing source of funding for several of our most vital programs. A gift designated to one of these endowments is truly a gift for the future.
Our endowments include:
The Franz and Virginia Bidinger Endowment for the Fine Arts. This endowment, established by the Bidinger family, ensures meaningful therapeutic and recreational fine arts programming in both the Residence and the Health and Rehab Center.
The Benevolence Fund Endowment. This endowment was established to allow the MCH community to assist residents experiencing unexpected financial hardship, allowing them to remain in their MCH homes and to receive assistance in their time of need.
The Chaplaincy Endowment. The new Chaplaincy endowment provides ongoing funding for spiritual and pastoral care programming and staffing at MCH, ensuring that our Catholic identity remains strong as our organization grows and changes.
