The Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center Foundation exists to enrich the lives of our residents, tenants and staff by raising funds to provide amenities throughout our campus that might not be funded without the generous support of our donors.

In addition to sending you a receipt, if possible, we will notify the person honored or the family of the person memorialized through your gift.
Missouri Slope is the only locally owned and managed long term care and senior living organization in our region. We are fortunate to have support from our member churches and the greater community. All money given to the organization stays in the community and has a major impact on the daily lives of residents, tenants, families, and employees. Our Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We have many options for giving including a tax credit qualified endowment fund, gift annuities, a capital campaign fund, general funds, and M-Club for the special projects aimed at Enriching Lives.
The Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center Foundation has set an ambitious goal of raising $5 million during its Capital Campaign. The money will be used to complete the vision of the Washington Campus Project as many of the important features and amenities are not able to be funded through the loans and reimbursement system. Spaces such as a Chapel for residents, tenants, families, and employees to worship throughout the week; a Bistro and Coffee Shop will be a great destination for all to feed their body and soul; a therapy pool to allow the most fragile and weak to regain strength and confidence; a child day care center will allow daily interaction among the youngest generation and the greatest generation as well as meeting the child care needs of our employees.
