The Memorial Endowment Association was established as a testimony to the living relationship we develop with the families who entrust their loved ones to us. The community members appointed to the Endowment Association volunteer their time to provide oversight for the use of donated funds to Oak Hill and Magnolia Terrace. All money donated is used to purchase something that will benefit the residents. There are no administrative costs. Some choose to donate for a particular project while others may leave money through their will or as a donation and choose to only have the interest from their donation used to purchase items. Contact Kim Keckritz at 618-939-3488 if you are interested in making a difference in our resident’s lives with your charitable donation.
There are a number of ways you can make a difference:
Memorial donations that honor a loved one with a tribute or memorial gift
The Voris Fund which assists those with a financial need to provide them “extras” that they do not have the funds to purchase
The Frances Meyer Care Enhancement Fund is used to pay for additional hours of staffing to provide extra care for residents.
Activity donations enhance the social programs for residents at Arbor Court, Magnolia Terrace and/or Whispering Pines
Comfort Cart fund
