Charitable Giving


DMRC has faithfully maintained the mission of meeting the needs of deserving senior adults for more than 140 years. We are proud of our tradition and commitment steadfastly maintained throughout our history that no person has been asked to leave our community for an inability to pay all or a portion of the fees. Our commitment to benevolent care costs $650,000 annually.

Factors such as: 1) limited assets, 2) fixed incomes, 3) the lengthening of the aging process, and 4) the increasing gap between actual costs and Medicaid reimbursement rates combine to impact the ability of our residents to meet their expense obligations. The Benevolent Fund was established to meet this need in order to decrease financial pressure on the general operating budget. Deer Meadows undertakes a variety of fundraising initiatives throughout the year to help offset this cost. We invite you to explore the various options identified on this page.
