Support Our Mission

Thank you for taking a moment to consider making a gift to Schowalter Villa. As a non-profit long-term care community, residents can continue to live on our campus and receive personalized care if they happen to find themselves in an unplanned circumstance where they have run out of funds to cover the full cost of their care.

This is possible through the generosity of local, national and international supporters of Schowalter Villa who believe in our mission of providing compassionate care to seniors.  Please use our secure online donation system to donate any amount you wish.

Your gift will help support the Good Samaritan Caring Fund. This fund is a ministry of Schowalter Villa and its loyal supporters. Your gift supports Schowalter Villa’s mission to:

  • Ensure the highest level of commitment and care possible
  • Provide care with loving compassion while fostering dignity and respect 
  • Enable residents to make personal choices
  • Enrich lives through wellness of mind, body and spirit
  • Develop a strong sense of community and friendship

For questions or information, contact Russ Gaeddert, Director of Fund Advancement, at 620-327-3477 or via our contact form.

Make Schowalter Villa a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), SEP, Keogh, or other qualified retirement plan.  It does not cost anything to make this change. The administrator of your plan can give you a one-page form to make this change.

  • It is revocable.
  • It reserves all of the assets for your use if you need them.
  • It can save taxes for you and your estate.
  • It can make more money in your estate available to your family and friends.

Gift of Residency Fee Refund

Schowalter Villa residents who paid a Residency Fee when they moved to campus can, if they picked a refund option, designate that refund to be paid to Schowalter Villa upon their passing.

Gifts of Grain

You can gift grain to benefit Schowalter Villa while also deducting the cost of production and potentially qualifying for other tax benefits as well. You sell the commodity and the buyer writes the check to Schowalter Villa (also forwarding a scale ticket or auction receipt). Or, you can designate an amount of grain to be held at an elevator for Schowalter Villa, notify the fund advancement office, and we will direct the sale.
