About the Foundation

Bethesda is a not-for-profit organization that has been serving St. Louis seniors since 1889. The Bethesda Health Group (BHG) Foundation depends on charitable contributions to support our mission of providing quality and affordable care, even if our seniors have depleted their financial resources. Private generosity continues to make the critical difference. It's the reason we can offer essential amenities, such as independent living services, that are not revenue-generators, bridge the gap between what government support covers and what care actually costs, continually improve our facilities, and keep care affordable for all St. Louis seniors. 

Why Support the BHG Foundation:

  • Your tax-deductible gifts help ensure that our seniors and future generations will always have a home with Bethesda.
  • Support of the BHG Foundation helped subsidize nearly $13.9 million in humanitarian care (financial assistance) that Bethesda provided last year to residents who have exhausted their resources.
  • With the future of Medicare and Medicaid funding in question, more and more financially strapped seniors will be counting on Bethesda to be there for them.
  • Generous gifts help us to provide quality care and services that our seniors deserve.
