Charitable Giving

Catholic Senior Housing and Health Care Services, Inc. traces its roots to 1963 when Holy Family Manor was founded as a home for 42 elderly "where love of God and love of neighbor abound." Today CSHHCS annually serves more than 1200 elders each year from our community by providing rehabilitation, skilled nursing, personal care and independent living at 12 locations.

As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization Catholic Senior Housing and Health Care Services accepts charitable gifts to help support our mission of providing the best possible physical, social, emotional, and physical care with respect, dignity and compassion to the elderly of all faiths whom we serve. Charitable gifts help provide:

1. Activity programs to meet the unique needs of residents with a range of physical and cognitive disabilities

2. Spiritual programs that support aging and end of life

3. Medical care and supplies not covered by Medicare or Medicaid for residents of Holy Family Manor

4. Continuing care for residents who have outlived their personal resources

Thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations CSHHCS provides more than $5 million in charitable care each year. CSHHCS offers the following giving plans that allow those who are charitably inclined to make meaningful gifts while also addressing other important financial and estate planning goals.

Annual Fund

Annual gifts help provide unrestricted financial support for programs and services. Gifts are welcome at any time and may be designated for a specific purpose or for where the need is greatest. Donors of $1000 or more annually are included in our Holy Family Society.

Memorial Gifts
Memorial Gifts are a way to recognize the memory of a loved one or a special person in your life. Many families name Holy Family Nursing and Rehabilitation Center or Personal Care Homes as recipient of memorial gifts in lieu of flowers upon the death of a loved one.

Honor Gifts
Honor Gifts are a way to recognize someone for a special occasion or just to show you care. Mother's & Father's Day, birthdays, anniversaries and other holidays are wonderful examples of thoughtful giving opportunities.

Memorial gifts are recognized on the Tree of Life and at other locations through out our facilities.

A gift by bequest may be designated when writing your will or by adding a codicil to your existing will. This gift can be a fixed amount, a percentage of or the residual value of your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuity

With a Charitable Gift Annuity a donor can receive income in exchange for a gift of cash, securities, or other property. In exchange for the gift, a donor will receive a fixed amount each month for the remainder of his/her life, and may be able to save on income tax or capital gains. Annuitants also receive the satisfaction of making a generous gift that would not be possible with current income.

Life Insurance
Naming Holy Family Residential Services beneficiary, contingent beneficiary, or transferring ownership of a policy can make life insurance gifts. In the latter, you receive an income tax deduction for the cash surrender value and subsequent premiums.

Matching Gifts
Many businesses and corporations will match employee and/or retiree gifts of cash/securities up to a fixed amount.

Real Estate
Because of the nature of these gifts, we recommend you contact the Holy Family Development Director and your financial advisor / lawyer to discuss your plans.

Securities / Stocks / Bonds
A favorable gift choice, Securities also offer you a tax benefit. We recommend you call your financial advisor/lawyer for advice.

Naming Opportunities
Gifts may be designated to support the renovation of an existing area our property, or to endow funding for a specific program of interest to the donor.
