Building a foundation for the future of those we serve.

For nearly 176 years, Maple Knoll Communities, Inc. has believed in drafting a blueprint to serve not only our current seniors but generations of seniors to come. As we reflect on the incredible journey we’ve embarked on thus far, we are excited to share our vision for the future and invite you to be a crucial part of it. Our Annual Fund Appeal, “Blueprint for Success,” asks that each of you, our valued supporters, join us in making this vision a reality.

Last year alone, we provided $3,600,000 in uncompensated expenses and raised $1,998,422 towards these efforts.

Consider a Monetary Donation

Make a difference in the lives of seniors

Your gift, no matter the size, will help ease the worries of many of the older adults we serve.

The generosity of our donors is vital as we continue our efforts to provide a caring and supportive environment for older adults in the community. Donors have the option to give annually or on a monthly basis. Monetary gifts can also be made in the honor or memory of a loved one. Donations are recognized in our biannual Development Dispatch magazine, at special events, and in our Annual Report.

In addition, gifts made prior to December 31st may benefit you by providing a charitable deduction and tax savings. Please note that all gifts will be directed solely to the designated program of your choice within the Maple Knoll Communities Foundation family.

Gifts to the 2023 Annual Fund can be made online via credit card or by mail via check. For those making contributions through their IRA, the MKC Foundation EIN is 88-1290177.

The Maple Knoll Communities' Foundation impacts the senior community through the following funds:

Our employees are vital to making our campus the unique family environment that it currently is and one way to support this outstanding group is through The Employee Engagement Fund, formerly known as The Good Samaritan Fund. These funds can be used for Emergency Support, Education, and Employee Appreciation. This could be assistance with funeral expenses for a loved one, rent, utilities, etc. It can also be directed towards helping an employee further their education, such as becoming a nurse to meet the needs of those in our care.

The Future Care Fund, a benevolent care program, acts as a voice for others and allows for our over 1,200 residents to live a life of peace and security. People today are living healthier and longer lives. Even when everything seems to be in order, people can still outlive their financial resources. The Future Care Fund provides for the care of residents who, through no fault of their own, need help. The assistance goes beyond the basics of senior care. It offers residents peace of mind and preserves their dignity, security, physical and emotional needs for the remainder of their lives.

Services ensure that over 850 nursing residents a year maintain their dignity and pride no matter what level of nursing they may require. Insurance and Medicaid reimbursements do not cover the entire cost of care for each patient. Last year, we had $3,600,000 in total costs of healthcare in excess of reimbursements. Donations can be directed to necessary equipment or programming costs for those sending a signal for assistance.

Spiritual Life continues to be a major focus, and benefit, for our residents, staff and families. A gift to the Spiritual Life Fund can be used for necessary equipment in the Maple Knoll Chapel and to enhance programs and services such as counseling, grief support and more across our campuses.

WMKV/WLHS is a member-supported public radio serving Greater Cincinnati, Butler and Warren Counties and streaming worldwide as a free service that provides radio companionship to over 30,000 listeners of all ages. WMKV/WLHS depends on the generosity of listeners, along with area foundation grants and program sponsors to continue being a nostalgic companion and educational resource for older adults in the community.
