rose hill foundation

Since 1992, Rose Hill Center has provided individuals with the insights, life skills, attitudes, and medication management skills needed to address their mental illness in much the same manner that other medical problems are treated. By combining pharmacological treatment with an intense therapeutic rehabilitation program, Rose Hill Center assists individuals in achieving and maintaining the psychiatric stability they need to reach their highest level of independence.

In 2003, the Rose Hill Foundation was established to manage and steward philanthropic gifts received on behalf of Rose Hill Center. By establishing an endowment and wisely managing the funds invested in that endowment, the Rose Hill Foundation has built a secure base of funding for Rose Hill Center’s ongoing operation.

The Foundation also manages outright gifts restricted to specific needs at Rose Hill Center. Whether capital improvements, program support, or funding for resident activities and needs, the Rose Hill Foundation is committed to seeing that a donor’s intent in supporting needs meaningful to them is fully honored.

“He is slowly getting back into the ‘living’ part of his life and is proud of some things in his life again. I owe Rose Hill Center and the staff for the change.”

Annual Giving

While Rose Hill Center strives to offer reasonable fees for treatment, the lack of adequate insurance benefits and other support for mental health services means out-of-pocket expenses often extend beyond the reach of many residents and their families.

In response to this challenge, the Rose Hill Foundation established a Financial Assistance Fund to help with treatment costs residents and their families are unable to manage on their own. Too often, though, families are still turned away because financial assistance can only be provided to the extent of the funds available.

When you make a gift in response to one of Rose Hill Foundation’s general appeals, whether by mail or online, that gift adds to the funds available to provide financial assistance. The Foundation also conducts various special events such as the John Kelly Memorial Golf Invitational that specifically support the Financial Assistance Fund.

Philanthropy through Major Gifts and Planned Giving

The Rose Hill Foundation provides information online regarding various ways to support the Foundation and Rose Hill Center through current major giving and numerous estate planning vehicles.

Current major gifts allow donors to fund, in whole or in part, very specific needs at Rose Hill Center. Frequently related to facilities, equipment, or program enhancements, these gift opportunities often include specific naming options that allow donors to create an enduring legacy at Rose Hill Center.

By including the Rose Hill Foundation in your estate plans through your will, gifting of retirement assets and insurance plans, or the funding of life-income plans, you help our residents overcome struggles associated with mental illness. These gifts also provide opportunities to reduce the taxes your estate might be subject to and might also provide financial benefits to your heirs beyond a straight inheritance. You can learn more about such opportunities through Rose Hill’s online planned giving resources.
