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.

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 our residents weather financial hardship.

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.

A Tribute Celebration
