Charitable Giving 

All gifts make a difference. 

Three Pillars Senior Living Communities (aka Wisconsin Masonic Home, Inc.) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing exceptional housing and compassionate care to meet the physical, social, and spiritual needs of older adults.

In 1905, Willard Van Brunt generously gifted a 300-acre farm, mansion and other buildings in Dousman, Wisconsin to serve as the first housing community. Since then, people like Willard have carried on the legacy of giving by supporting Three Pillars Senior Living Communities.

Supporting older adults with a gift to Three Pillars Senior Living Communities can be directed to a specific fund, project or community. There are many ways to give and all gifts make a difference.

Help Us Raise $5,000 for a New Water Feature!

 


 

Thanks to a resident’s wonderful idea, we would like to implement a water fountain at the entrance of our Health Care Center. This new water feature would be located close to established seating, which means that residents, staff, and visitors could rest and relax while enjoying the soothing sounds of flowing water.

We are dedicated to maintaining a beautiful and serene environment at Three Pillars, and we are confident that a water feature would enhance the health and emotional state of everyone who visits and lives on our campus. Notably, running water is proven to improve people’s physical and mental well-being while lowering heart rate and blood pressure. Our fountain would incorporate calming, biophilic design, which is the concept of introducing nature back into our lives for therapeutic benefits.

Thank you for supporting our exciting effort to install a water feature!

Resident Support Fund

This charitable care program allows residents to benefit from Three Pillars’ services even if they face unexpected financial challenges and/or outlive their resources (and when government assistance alone cannot fully provide for their care).

Currently, up to 45% of residents in each of our Three Pillars communities rely on our Resident Support Fund (with the exception of Independent Living). They are exceedingly thankful for the opportunity to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their homes when times get tough. 

To donate, click here.

 


 

Staff Appreciation and Emergency Fund

Show your gratitude for our staff by making a gift in their name. Your support will directly provide them with deeply appreciated "perks" (such as meals, gift cards, etc.), plus funds to help them through current financial challenges.
