Supporting Residents in Need and Enhancing the Quality of Life at Marquette

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 Care Fund

In recognition of that generosity, the Foundation has renamed its annual fund to The Care Fund — a reflection of the impact of donor support for benevolent care. The Care Fund embodies the kindness and charity of donors who wish to make a positive impact through their annual giving. The Marquette Manor Foundation gratefully acknowledges and thanks our annual donors to The Care Fund, which supports benevolent care primarily from year-end appeals, sustaining (monthly), honor, and memorial gifts, as well as from investment fund earnings.

Donor Recognition Naming Opportunities

The Marquette Manor Foundation and Marquette (Retirement Living, Inc.) are able to provide such exceptional senior living experiences for our residents and necessary benevolent care to individuals in need in part because of the generous financial support from individuals and families. Honoring these benefactors is an opportunity not only to thank them, but also inspire others to join them in creating a culture and tradition of generosity. From the benches, pavers, and bricks commemorating those honored and memorialized, to the rooms and spaces enjoyed daily in sharing meals, conversation, and friendship, the Marquette community is surrounded by the altruism of others.
