Giving to Providence Marianwood Foundation
Providence Marianwood cares for the poor and vulnerable including the elderly, chronically ill and disabled, with respect and compassion, celebrating the whole person - body, mind and spirit.
The Providence Marianwood Foundation provides financial support for residents at Providence Marianwood who can no longer pay for the cost of their care. We also provide funding for programs, activities, services, therapies and equipment that enhance quality of life.
Over 70% of our most elderly residents have outlived their personal financial resources and depend on government programs and the generosity of others to pay for the cost of the compassionate, caring, dignified and respectful care and quality services they receive at Providence Marianwood. Marianwood provides over $1.5 million in uncompensated care cost annually.
Many of our residents have Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia and all of them need 24-hour skilled nursing care in a safe and secure environment. They are the most poor and vulnerable in our community and as a nonprofit, we are called by our mission to care for them and keep them safe.
Ways to give
Your donation will directly and immediately impact and enrich the lives of our residents. Without your support, we simply could not continue to offer the same quality of care and variety of life-enhancing services, programs and therapies. We welcome large and small gifts and truly appreciate and celebrate the generosity of each and every donor. More information.
The health benefits of giving
When asked “What are the health benefits of being a giving person?”, Dr. Michael Roizen replied:
“There are few feelings in the world that surpass that of knowing you helped someone - whether
it's through a financial donation, or a mentoring program, or giving up your seat on a crowded
bus. It feels good - and is good.”
The power of giving
"Never underestimate the power of giving. It shines like a beacon throughout humanity. It cuts through the oceans that divide us and brightens the lives of all it touches. One of life's greatest laws is that you cannot hold a torch to light another' s path...without brightening your own." -Author Unknown
