Ways to Donate

Where Needed Most

Donations that arrive without any designation will be applied where it is needed most. This gives United Zion the most flexibility in using the funds.

Benevolent Care

All United Zion residents enjoy high-quality services, whether or not their care needs have outpaced their ability to pay. Your gift to benevolent care helps United Zion cover the over $2.48 million in unreimbursed care we provide annually to individuals who have found themselves unable to pay. We value your partnership in meeting these needs!

Caregiver Fund

Frequently, appreciative residents and family members desire to recognize the care and attention employees provide. Though our policies do not permit tips or gratuities, recognition is possible through The Caregiver Fund. Gifts to The Caregiver Fund provide resources for special employee events, holiday gifts, and recognition gifts to all employees. Funds are also used to provide scholarships for continuing education, service awards and emergency funds for an employee’s unexpected health or family needs.

Capital Improvements

United Zion Retirement Community is planning for the future by enhancing its modest yet well-appointed facilities to meet the changing needs of residents and their families. In the last four years, we have completed many capital projects including: Firestone Healthcare Center renovations, Heritage Hills Dining renovations, Heart of the Home Chapel, the Welcome Center renovations, fire sprinkler tank installations and Lexington Square Restaurant.  Your gift designated for capital improvements helps improve daily life for residents and the team members who serve them. Our next project will be a new apartment building with 6,800 square feet of new common space. Learn more about opportunities with this new project here.

Planned Giving
