The Foun­da­tion at Bethany

Bethany began with a car­ing tra­di­tion that con­tin­ues to set the stan­dard for excep­tion­al ser­vices. These ser­vices enhance the qual­i­ty of life for God’s beloved seniors. To hon­or the seniors in our com­mu­ni­ty, we invite you to sup­port The Foun­da­tion at Bethany through finan­cial contributions.

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be gen­er­ous on every occa­sion, and through us your gen­eros­i­ty will result in thanks­giv­ing to God. This ser­vice that you per­form is not only sup­ply­ing the needs of God’s peo­ple but is also over­flow­ing in many expres­sions of thanks to God.

About Our Foundation

Bethany Home Soci­ety Foun­da­tion, Inc., is a not-for-prof­it, pub­lic ben­e­fit cor­po­ra­tion. Formed in 1997, The Foun­da­tion at Bethany rais­es con­tri­bu­tions, man­ages invest­ed gifts, and dis­trib­utes funds for Bethany’s oper­at­ing finan­cial needs. This foun­da­tion has been a vital aspect of Bethany’s suc­cess in serv­ing its res­i­dents and with your help, we can con­tin­ue that success. 

Our Vision

Our vision for the future is to see Bethany con­tin­ue as one of the pre­mier providers of hous­ing and health care ser­vices for our senior pop­u­la­tion. In the com­ing years, we antic­i­pate new pro­grams and lev­el of care to emerge that can assist in serv­ing our res­i­dents at an even greater lev­el. We are com­mit­ted to Bethany as a vital provider in the future, and seek to gar­ner the finan­cial sup­port need­ed to ful­fill this vision.

Our Mis­sion

The Foun­da­tion at Bethany upholds and endors­es Bethany’s mission:

To hon­or and enrich the aging expe­ri­ence in a secure, vibrant Christ-cen­tered com­mu­ni­ty.” We oper­ate under the con­vic­tion that seniors are image bear­ers of God and essen­tial aspects of Christ’s love and are ded­i­cat­ed to uphold­ing that sentiment.
