Tribute Giving
Remember your loved ones with a contribution in their name to Three Pillars Senior Living Communities. Friends and family can make a gift in honor or memory of their loved ones. This is a meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life all while supporting the mission of Three Pillars Senior Living Communities. Our Tribute Path starts by the entrance of Compass Point and leads to the beautiful Memorial Garden, located along the Bark River. It’s a picturesque setting offering a serene opportunity for residents, family members, and visitors to take a peaceful stroll or sit and stay a while. If interested in participating, please fill out the attached form. You may also contact the Chief Development Officer at 262.965.7294 for more information.

Three Pillars' 2019 Annual Gala - An Evening of Music and Memories
An Evening of Music and Memories: Three Pillars' Fundraising Gala

You're invited to join us at a special signature event - our formal fundraising gala at the Marriott Milwaukee West! Please save the date for Friday evening, May 8, 2020. Proceeds from this event will benefit those impacted by dementia and support the implementation of a dementia-friendly community. Please visit our Gala page for full details.

Operation Freedom
Three Pillars is pleased to participate in Operation Freedom, a partnership with the Lake Country Freemasons and Stars & Stripes Honor Flight, Inc.

This initiative seeks to accomplish a twofold goal:

  1. That every eligible veteran who resides on our Dousman campus will travel on an Honor Flight.
  2. That each of their travel companion guardians will fly at no cost.

Approximately 68 individuals on campus are veterans, and the majority are eligible for an Honor Flight but have not yet participated. Thanks to encouragement and financial support through Operation Freedom, more veterans are beginning to submit applications and secure spots to fly in the coming year.

WWII Memorial, Washington DC, Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, Three Pillars Senior Living CommunitiesYou’re invited to support this special initiative. While Stars & Stripes Honor Flight covers the cost for veterans to participate in the program, travel companion guardians pay $500 for the honor of escorting a veteran to Washington, DC. Tax-deductible donations to Operation Freedom help ensure that guardians accompanying Three Pillars veterans are able to participate at no cost. Gifts that exceed the initial goal of covering all guardians this year will remain in the Operation Freedom fund to make future Honor Flights possible for new residents or Vietnam War veterans.

Your tax-deductible gift will help make the dream of an Honor Flight a reality for all our residents and their guardians! Making an online donation is simple and secure using the “Donate Now” button above and selecting “Operation Freedom Fund” from the designation dropdown box.

Staff Appreciation
Grateful residents and family members often want to show their appreciation to those who provide care and compassion. This fund provides this opportunity. Gifts are used to provide added benefits or “perks” such as gift cards or tickets for zoo or sports events. Staff is sent a special recognition letter.    

Resident Support Fund
This fund is for those residents who have outlived their financial resources, so that Three Pillars may continue its tradition of not asking them to leave because of the inability to pay for their care.

Every year Three Pillars hosts two very special events which offer sponsorship opportunities which helps to underwrite the expense. 

During the summer months Friends and Family gathers together residents, family and community members for a day of fun which includes a delicious chicken dinner and fun family events. Also, during the month of October the Halloween Haunted Woods is a long time community tradition that attracts over 1000 children and is a huge favorite for the residents.
