Our Core Values
The Burcham Hills Foundation is dedicated to attracting the resources necessary to maintain the buildings, services, and programming quality that have been part of our retirement community since its inception.

Ways to Give
Cash or Check
Gifts made by check (made payable to the Burcham Hills Foundation) along with a letter stating your gift’s purpose may be mailed to Lesa Smith, Foundation Director, 2700 Burcham Drive, East Lansing, MI 48823.
This method of giving allows you to make a multi-year pledge commitment with a specific payment schedule that best suits your wishes.
This is an “unrestricted” endowment fund offering support toward the sustainability of operating expenses, programs, services, and other areas of greatest need for the entire Burcham Hills community.
Introduced by former Burcham Hills Foundation Board member Ray Champion, the Benevolent Care Fund offers financial support to Burcham Hills’ residents who have found themselves negatively affected by the changes in their financial status. With assistance from this Fund, these residents have the opportunity to live at Burcham Hills for a longer period of time. We strive to make sure that residents never have to leave their Burcham Hills homes due to a funding issue. Each year the Foundation assists several residents, but we would like to do more. Please help us grow our endowment fund and continue our commitment to enhance our residents’ sense of security.
To support the Center for Health and Rehabilitation as a whole.
