The BHI Foundation: Supporting the health of our communities

BHI Senior Living strives to ensure that every resident who lives at one of our Continuing Care Retirement Communities is empowered to live life to the fullest. It’s a lifestyle filled with opportunities to enhance wellness; enjoy exceptional services, amenities, and activities; and live in a community filled with good neighbors and caring staff. For more than 25 years, the BHI Foundation has been instrumental in helping us attain that goal.


“We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”

— Winston Churchill


BHI Foundation Programs

Benevolent Care: The Good Neighbor Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the strength of the BHI Foundation, we are proud to offer the security of lifelong care for BHI residents who deplete their financial resources through no fault of their own, and are no longer able to meet their monthly living expenses.

BHI residents who enter one of our CCRCs under a continuing care agreement are eligible to apply for benevolent care so that they may continue their residency in that community for as long as they choose. We are proud to say that no resident with a continuing care agreement has ever been asked to leave one of BHI’s senior living communities because of an inability to pay, when their financial resources have been exhausted through no fault of their own.

Employee Scholarship Program

The BHI Foundation sponsors a scholarship program for the employees of BHI’s retirement communities. This tuition reimbursement program is designed to encourage employees to enhance their personal and professional growth through higher education. Retirement community employees can choose from two career development tracks: college credit/vocational courses or professional nursing licensure (RN and LPN).

Special Gifts and Projects

The generosity of our donors has enabled the BHI Foundation to make many improvements to BHI’s senior living communities, including: transportation vehicles (buses and golf carts), wide-screen TVs, chilled salad bars, paved walking paths, landscaping and enhanced medical facilities.

BHI Foundation Inc. is a 509(a)(3) support organization.
