Please take a moment and consider helping us further our mission at Bethany Home Association. When we give to charitable causes, we enrich not only our own lives, but those touched by our generosity as well. While planned gifts help for the future, gifts today help with daily operations and provide additional support of our residents who are unable to pay fully for the care and support they need.
There are many ways you can make an enormous difference in the lives of our residents, family members, and the people of the Smoky Valley Community. We are thankful for your support through community actions, volunteer services, and financial gifts.
Here are just a few ways you can help:
Bethany Home accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran’s benefits and private insurances. However, often times, the reimbursement received from insurance and/or Medicaid does not cover the rising cost of care, supplies, equipment, and/or medications that an individual needs to thrive. Additional income helps cover the costs of unreimbursed medical and transportation expenses, operating expenses, and allows us to provide additional activities, services, and benefits to the residents of Bethany Home.
Your financial donation can be designated for a specific use or department (restricted) or be given as an unrestricted gift that will be utilized where it is most needed at the time. Unrestricted contributions allow Bethany Home the maximum flexibility in meeting the needs of our community. However, if you have a specific health care interest, you have the ability to designate your gift to benefit a certain department or program. Please contact us to learn more about specific programs.
Many people choose to include their charitable interests in their long-range estate planning. There are a number of ways to preserve the financial security of one's self and loved ones while also providing for charitable gifts.
EXAMPLES OF PLANNED GIFTS
Wills & Bequests: A gift to Bethany Home in your will allows you to retain your assets during your lifetime and/or the life of your spouse. Designations may be for a percent of your estate or a specified amount.
Life Insurance: Transferring a life insurance policy's ownership to Bethany Home can result in tax benefits for you and a generous gift for Bethany Home. Bethany Home can also be included as a partial beneficiary of a policy.
Charitable Trust: A charitable trust can provide income for you and/or your spouse while you are living. Thereafter, Bethany Home can be named to receive the remainder of the assets. Other charities can be named as principal recipients as well.
Endowment or Foundation: Bethany Home has endowment accounts with the Greater Salina Community Foundation and the McPherson County Community Foundation. You may contact Bethany Home or either of the community foundations for more information on specific endowments or foundations.
Other Gifts: Other charitable gift options include a direct gift of cash, appreciated securities, real property, grain or crop donations, retirement plans, and living trusts.
If you have questions about estate planning, consult your attorney, accountant, or financial planner. Consult with your financial advisor or estate planner to determine the best way to build an estate plan that fits your unique needs and wishes.
In Kind Donations: Contact us to see what our needs are and if your gift will can fill a need at Bethany Home. Examples may include household items, furniture, televisions, and etc.
At this time, Bethany Home does not have an annual event or fundraiser. However, you may want to host a special event, garage sale, bake sale or perhaps collect a special offering at your church that can be given to Bethany Home. Please contact us if you would like a representative to visit with you or speak at your church, civic meeting or gathering.
If you’ve ever visited Bethany Home, you know we are a very busy place! If you would like to volunteer your time to help with activities, special events, or visiting with the residents, let us know! We welcome all sorts of talents for entertainment, education or sharing as well.
We are always in need of prayer warriors!
