The legacy of generosity

It started with a gift

Henry and Annie Merner Pfeiffer exemplify the spirit of generosity that continues to propel this organization forward in its second century of service.

In 1911, the couple donated his parents’ farmstead plus $20,000 so The Evangelical Association could build a place for aging church members to call home. The plan had stalled for eight years until the Pfeiffers stepped forward.

Throughout the decades, others have stepped up and stood in the gap so that Western Home Communities could survive and thrive. Today, as we enjoy living longer yet face rising health care costs, Western Home Foundation helps ensure that Western Home Communities can continue to keep its promise that no one is ever asked to leave when their financial resources run out.

Doing so requires ongoing commitment from generous people like the Pfeiffers, as the total of our charitable care delivered at Martin Center and Stanard Family Assisted Living totals several hundred thousand dollars each year.

We invite you and your family to join us as we live out our mission as a not-for-profit, 501(C)3 charitable Christian service organization. There are many “win-win” opportunities that can provide tax advantages and increased cash flow while delivering the satisfaction that only comes from lending a hand to help others. 

Let’s build on the legacy together. Explore the possibilities of a gift to Western Home Foundation.

Gift Opportunities

The Sheltering Circle – Recognizing Current Donors
All donors who give a current or annual gift of $1,000+ to benefit Western Home Foundation will become members of the Sheltering Circle. Current and annual gifts produce immediate help for those in need. Each year we fundraise to offset almost $1 million in charitable care for residents who have outlived their resources.

The Haven Society – Recognizing Planned Gift Donors 
Planning a gift now, such as a gift annuity, charitable trust, appreciated stock, or will, gives you options. Your carefully planned gift allows you and your family to decide what to do with your funds. All donors who commit a planned gift to benefit Western Home Communities’ residents in the future will become lifetime members of the Haven Society.

Contact Director of Development Mary Taylor at (319) 859-9338 to discuss charitable gift annuities, estate plans, or email her: Mary.Taylor@WesternHome.org.
