Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community was founded upon the spirit of giving with a 1954 bequest from Anna Bartels, the widow of a Lutheran pastor.
Fall Appeal 2022:
Your support and generosity of Bartels mission is uplifting. Despite the challenges with the ongoing pandemic, you are making a difference in the lives of the residents at Bartels. In 2021, your gifts resulted in:
Make a donation in 2022 to provide peace of mind through the Good Shepherd Fund, help us to purchase a Tovertafel to improve the quality of life of our residents with dementia, support our staff with appreciation events, continue to plant trees and create green spaces on campus and support the full-time chaplaincy program. Thank you for making an impact in the lives of our residents and supporting our community. Because of you, seniors benefit from Bartels’ non-profit mission: Enriching lives through quality services and Christian care.
Bartels’ Annual Fund Campaign helps us meet the immediate funding needs of our creative therapy programs (horticulture, music and art therapy), our activities, chaplaincy, transportation programs, and some capital needs. Bartels is committed to providing the same level of care to all residents regardless of their financial ability. Our donors provide the generous charitable support that makes the difference, setting Bartels apart from other facilities that provide only basic care and senior housing.
The Friends for the Future is composed of individuals who have chosen to support Bartels through an endowment gift. Planned gifts assure the future of our mission. We are grateful for each gift, and know how important it is to our donors to respect their wishes and assure that every donation made will be used to support the needs of Bartels friends and neighbors. Direction for planned gifts may be considered for the following:
We invite you to make a donation in honor of the Bartels nurse, housekeeper, maintenance worker or other staff member who made a difference in your visit or stay. When you share a gift in appreciation of an outstanding Bartels team member, they will be notified of the charitable gift made in their honor, recognized publicly and given a lapel pin to wear proudly.
