The Mapleton Charity works to grow awareness and financial support for the needs of older adults in our care.

Our generous donors make our mission possible.

The Mapleton Community Charity raises funds and provides philanthropic support that enables Heritage Place and the Mapleton Community Home to provide compassionate care and services to older adults.

It is our sincere hope that you will consider supporting our mission.

Thank you!

Each gift makes a difference. A robust, financially secure foundation will allow us to:

• deliver the best possible care for our residents.

• continually make improvements to our processes, facilities and programs.

• share our expertise with others, leading the way to improving care for older adults everywhere.

Giving Opportunities include:

• Gifts for care and residents quality of life: Funding for specific programs and equipment.

• Gifts for facility upgrades: Funding for updating resident rooms and public spaces with new flooring, wall covering, and furniture. Several projects are currently underway.

• Gifts for the greatest need: Unrestricted funding for our long-term financial stability that helps bridge the gap between Medicaid and the true cost of care.

Challenges We Must Meet

As a 100% self-sufficient 501©3 nonprofit charitable organization, without philanthropic contributions, it would not be possible to meet the challenges we face today:

• Over half of the long-term residents living on our campus have outlived their financial resources and are relying in Medicaid (the government program that pays for medical care of the indigent) to pay for their care.

• Medicaid covers only a portion of the true cost of the care for these residents. The gap between the actual cost and Medicaid reimbursement is $100-$125 per day, per resident.

• In 2012 alone we provided more than $1 million in unreimbursed charity care for our residents who outlived their resources.

While many other facilities do not accept residents reliant upon Medicaid, or are quietly decreasing their Medicaid services, we know that to archive our goal of delivering of the best possible care for older adults regardless of their ability to pay, we must constantly:

Work efficiently and innovatively;

• Reduce our costs of operation;

• Continually make improvements to our processes, facilities and programs without incurring more debt; and

• Develop strong, lasting relationships with large customer and client constituencies.

We know that we must position ourselves financially to weather the reduction of public reimbursement and an increase in government regulations, while we continue to create new programs and revenue streams to fund our operations and attract and retain the best staff. Our community will need both Heritage Place of Mapleton and the Mapleton Community Home even more in the years to come.
