Please think of us as you consider life insurance beneficiaries, estate gifts, investment distributions and etc. We are here to serve our area community families by “Sharing Christ Through Caring Service” for people who choose Bethel as their home.

Your Legacy – Donor generosity have made significant gifts to Bethel Foundation impacting residents and families. The Vickman Chapel was built due to a significant gift made allowing a space for worship and fellowship unique from our dining room. Technology and equipment major purchases were made possible to enhance care, improve efficiency and provide comfort to residents due to the grace of others sharing their legacy gifts through planned giving.
