How Your Gift Makes a Difference
Residents of Asbury communities who outlive their financial resources through no fault of their own may apply for their community’s anonymous Benevolent Care program. Securing funds to support this need is central to Asbury Foundation’s Mission. Benevolent care may cover a range of expenses including medical, dental, housing, and more.

All gifts made to a particular community are restricted for the benefit of that community and its residents. Excess revenue over expenses is used to update facilities and services. When benevolent care needs must be met through operational revenue, this reduces the amount available to improve our campuses. Your support of benevolent care is an important part of Asbury Communities’ financial strength, the lifestyle Asbury Communities provides, and its faith-based heritage of doing all the good we can.
Learn More About Benevolent Care
What Is Benevolent Care?
Benevolent Care is the discounting of fees, including monthly and ancillary fees, and payment of certain expenses, for residents who have exhausted their assets.
Who Is Eligible for Benevolent Care?
All current residents are eligible to apply for Benevolent Care. Residents who have depleted their assets in order to qualify for assistance, including those who have transferred assets to family or others, are not eligible.
What Is The Benevolent Care Annual Fund?
This includes gifts made annually to Asbury Foundation for immediate use.
What Is The Benevolent Care Endowment Fund?
This includes gifts permanently invested in endowment, creating a principal base that generates interest income. The interest alone is used annually to fund benevolent care.
What Are Community Operating Funds?
If there is a shortfall in what is raised annually and the endowment interest income, then operational revenue must pick up the cost of benevolent care.
