The Bridgewater HealthCare Foundation (BHFI) — Insuring the Future

The mission of Bridgewater HealthCare Foundation is to acquire economic support for Bridgewater Retirement Community with special emphasis on the residents of Bridgewater Home who have limited or exhausted financial resources. Through the efforts of the Foundation quality care for our residents will continue for years to come. There are a variety of gift-giving opportunities and special campaigns to provide for the current and future needs of our residents and the growth of our campus.

The Foundation also acts as a service resource to provide information and assistance for sound financial planning for charitable gift annuities, estate planning, trusts, and more. We can help with planned charitable giving through bequests, securities, qualified real estate, life insurance policies, appreciated properties, and memorials and honor gifts. Upon request, the Foundation will provide written information, and seminars about charitable giving and estate planning. Contributions to Bridgewater HealthCare Foundation are tax deductible.

All donations, great and small, benefit many deserving seniors. Below are brief descriptions of giving opportunities.

Resident Care Endowment Fund

The Resident Care Endowment Fund (RCEF) was created for the purpose of providing supplemental funding for residents who are not able to afford the total cost of on-going care. Interest from this endowment directly aids Bridgewater Home in offsetting the difference between the amounts reimbursed by Medicaid and other support agencies and the cost of resident care.

Pastoral Care Endowment Fund

Established in 1988, the Pastoral Care Endowment Fund (PCEF) enables donors to perpetuate the Pastoral Care program and the operation and maintenance of Lantz Chapel.
