Caring Through Generosity

Enhance, Serve and Support the future of the Campus: Remember us with your Will, trust, retirement account or Life Insurance policy.

Since our founding more than a quarter-century ago, Directors, Administration and staff at the Jewish Home of Greater Harrisburg have followed our mission to provide quality care to the elderly, ill, and infirm. The Campus exists in part today through the generosity of its many friends. Generosity from the community helps assure that our residents receive the quality care and services they need, regardless of reimbursements provided by federal and state insurance and assistance programs.

P7100083Gifts to the Campus have furnished resident rooms, purchased outdoor furniture and geriatric exercise equipment, constructed lounges and a theater, have beautified the campus and have even provided for special programs. A major gift from the Guild of the Jewish Home allowed for the design and construction of the Guild Special Care Center, where people with mild-to-moderate cognitive problems receive care.

There are many giving opportunities to help the Campus continue its mission of providing care of the highest quality to a growing elderly population. Choose the one that best fits your philanthropic wishes.

You can designate your gift of any size to a specific Campus Designated Fund or allow us to direct the donation where it is needed most. The effects of your generosity are profound and far-reaching.

You can find a listing of designated funds by clicking here and choose which one is right for you.  Residents, staff and the Board all thank you for your consideration and generosity.

The Preservation Society

Through membership in The Preservation Society, you have the power to make a lasting impact on the health and well-being of our residents, today and tomorrow. Planned gifts offer you the chance to give to the Campus now or after your lifetime, helping you align your charitable giving with your overall financial and estate plans.

Each year, estate and life income gifts add significantly to the financial stability of the Campus by providing lasting support for programs and services. Notification of your intentions need not be more than a simple statement that you have included the Campus of the Jewish Home of Greater Harrisburg in your estate plans for a certain amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residual of your estate. You may also choose to share the page of your will referencing the Campus, if you are comfortable doing so.

Many giving options even offer you financial benefits, allowing you to make the greatest impact on resident care while maintaining the future security of your loved ones. By choosing the best assets and giving in the most effective ways, you may discover you can make gifts you did not think possible. There are almost as many ways to make a donation as there are needs to be met.

We are happy to assist you in planning your charitable decisions in consultation with your attorney and/or financial planner.

What is your legacy? Leave your legacy to the Jewish Home today to insure tomorrow’s future.
