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.
Resident Support Fund
Help bridge the gap between income and expenses for Three Pillars residents who face financial hardship due to prolonged illness and/or increased healthcare needs. Last year alone, Three Pillars extended benevolence support of $2 million to help residents weather financial hardship.
Show your gratitude for our staff by making a gift in their name. Your support will provide them with deeply appreciated “perks” (such as meals, gift cards, etc.), plus funds to help those who need it through financial challenges.
Celebrate a loved one’s life by making a tribute gift “In Memory Of” or “In Honor Of” him/her. You can even choose to direct your gift to our Tribute Path, which is a tranquil setting where residents, family members, and visitors can stroll peacefully and enjoy time outdoors. To order a Tribute Path engraved brick or picnic table, marked with your loved one’s name, please complete this form. You may also contact the our Development Department for more information: 262.965.7294 or email.
An Evening of Music and Memories: Three Pillars' Fundraising Gala
Please join us for our special fundraising gala rescheduled for Friday, October 30, 2020. This event will support our memory care and services; increase opportunities for residents to learn, socialize, and be independent; and provide dementia-related education for our staff, residents, and family members. Please visit our Gala page for full details.
Three Pillars' Wish Club
Be a part of making wishes come true! Brand new in 2020, Three Pillars' Wish Club aims to maximize joy and minimize regrets by granting the wishes of our residents. No wish is too small or too unique. While we regret that we can't grant every wish submitted or huge wishes like an African safari trip, our Wish Club committee reviews all submissions anonymously and uses creativity, connections, and persistence to grant wishes of all kinds. All residents are eligible to have a wish granted - they may submit their request themselves, or loved ones or staff members are encouraged to submit a wish on behalf of a resident. To submit a wish, please complete and return this form.
Learn more about our Wish Club program here. Want to make a financial gift towards future wishes being granted? Use our "Donate Now" button to donate online now. Have a question about the Wish Club or a great connection that may help us in granting wishes? Contact us: 262.965.7294 or email.
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.
You’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. 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.
Every year Three Pillars hosts two very special annual community events which offer sponsorship opportunities to help to underwrite the expense.
In August, Friends and Family gathers together residents, family, and community members for a day of fun including a delicious chicken dinner and fun family events. Our Halloween Haunted Woods event is a longtime community tradition that attracts over 1,000 participants each October and is a huge favorite for the residents.
Please consider supporting an item or experience from our Wish List to show your care and compassion for our residents.
Planning a gift allows a donor to coordinate his or her giving with financial, tax, and estate needs to maximize the gift and provide positive consequences for the donor. Examples of Planned Giving:
