Our commitment to charity care and benevolence is profound. Each year, we strive to raise money to support residents in our assisted living and skilled nursing units. The continuing cuts in Medicaid, increased costs of providing quality healthcare, and other circumstances persist in driving up the deficits of uncompensated care. As a non-profit organization, Lutheran Crossings must make up the difference between Medicaid reimbursements and the actual cost of providing the care for nearly half of our skilled nursing residents.
By contributing to Lutheran Crossings’ Good Samaritan Fund, you are personally touching the lives of many of our residents who are faced with financial hardship. We hope you will consider making a financial contribution to the Good Samaritan Fund, as the value of your support goes far beyond its financial worth. Your tax deductible contribution will help us continue our mission of providing compassionate, quality care to those in need.
Gifts by cash, check or credit card are the easiest and most direct way to benefit Lutheran Crossings and are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Gifts may be designated specifically to Lutheran Crossings to directly benefit its residents.
