Connect with our culture of giving.
Lenbrook is a caring community with a culture of giving that affords opportunities to impact Lenbrook Residents, Associates, and the Atlanta community. In keeping with our not-for-profit status, Lenbrook Philanthropy brings together residents, associates, board members, and their families who are deeply committed to philanthropy.
We proudly offer many opportunities to enhance the Lenbrook Difference through contributions in four essential areas: Resident Services, Associate Support, Distinguished Gifts and Projects, and the Lenbrook Unrestricted Fund.
Donations of checks may be made to our on-site Accounting Department. Electronic transfer and credit card donations may be made through the links below or by contacting our Development Office at (404) 233-3000 x2059.
Benefits to Residents
Unlike corporate-run communities, the barometer for Lenbrook’s performance is the quality of service provided to residents — not profits earned for owners or shareholders. That’s why we invest in the lives of residents through quality programs, services, and care. An independent Board of Directors assures that any excess money earned is reinvested back into the programs and services which benefit residents. And, because fees enable priority access to all levels of quality on-site healthcare, a portion of each resident’s Entrance Fee and Monthly Fee could be eligible for a tax deduction as prepaid medical expenses. (Please confer with your tax advisor to determine how this may apply to you, specifically.)
Benefits to Lenbrook
Lenbrook’s 501(c)3 not-for-profit designation produces significant operational savings through exemption from federal income and property taxes. These savings are passed on to our residents. Our not-for-profit status also allows us to fulfill our commitment, under the appropriate circumstances, to ensuring that no resident will be asked to leave Lenbrook solely due to financial hardship resulting from no fault of their own. Additionally, it allows us to support our caring and talented associates as they further their education through the Associate Education Fund and provide assistance during times of crisis through the Associate Hardship Fund.
“Because Lenbrook is a not-for-profit, any money that is made goes back into the community in the form of improvements and additions. And that’s huge. Because no matter how competent the operators of a for-profit community might be, they have shareholders, and they have to look out for their interests.”
—David R., Lenbrook Resident
