Marquette Manor Foundation

The Marquette Manor Foundation’s commitment to the promise of Supporting Residents in Need is reinforced by our two-fold purpose:

  • To financially assist residents whose funds have been partially or wholly exhausted because of illness, the economy, longevity, or unforeseen changes to their financial circumstances.
  • To foster, fund, and promote special artistic, educational, musical, or recreational projects or facilities that enhance quality of life at Marquette.

Peace of Mind

When residents become part of the Marquette community, they feel welcomed and secure, knowing they will always be able to remain at Marquette, even if they outlive their resources or face unforeseen financial circumstances. The Marquette Manor Foundation and Marquette Retirement Living, Inc. (RLI) provide a safety net to the community’s residents by honoring the promise of benevolent care made possible by the philanthropic giving of Marquette’s residents, their friends and families, Board members, and other donors to the Marquette Manor Foundation.


The Marquette Manor Foundation and Marquette (RLI) Boards are continually grateful to the many residents whose exceptional generosity and concern for their neighbors has motivated their philanthropy.  Over the years the Boards have honored these benefactors by naming prominent physical places and spaces for them.  The Boards are strategically expanding this expression of gratitude by offering donors the opportunity to attach their own or a loved one’s name to selected areas/spaces and to inspire others through their example.  The most recent named recognitions include the Hackl Legacy Dining Room and the Margaret Winkler Activity Room in the Pavilion.  For more information, please contact the Foundation Executive Director.
