Our mission continues to expand thanks to the generous support of donors
Since our founding, Genacross Lutheran Services has continued to expand to meet the needs of people in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Today, Genacross annually serves more than 3,600 people of all ages and supports various community programs that are in keeping with our mission of service. But none of this would be possible without the generous support of some 2,500 donors who come alongside us to share in our mission.

That is where the Genacross Lutheran Services Foundation comes in. The Foundation is responsible for helping donors who would like to join in the Genacross mission — whether through a single, one-time gift or through planned giving. We ensure that all gifts are used for their intended purpose and provide a point of contact for donors who would like to see the difference their gifts have made.

People give to Genacross for a variety of reasons and every donor has a story:


“… I am the last remaining sibling and each one of us have always expressed a great appreciation for the Lutheran Orphans’ Home that gave us a feeling of belonging when we felt like we didn’t belong …”


“… I want to thank you for all the help that you have given [my daughter]. The staff always took care of her and made her feel better about herself. … [She] is happy now … she has learned many things that will help her through life.”


“I feel an obligation to give back to [Genacross] after all the wonderful care I received. They gave me my life back. I didn’t think I would ever be independent again after my surgery … the staff truly cared about me and my recovery. I recovered much quicker than I or my doctors thought I would, and I was able to go home early. …”


“Please use this gift to continue helping those who need [Genacross] to care for them in their time of need. … [Following a negative experience at another nursing home], I received the call that there was a bed available [at Genacross]. … The change in [my mother] over the last five weeks has been incredible. She began eating and drinking immediately. She was interacting with family and friends. The staff here really is called to their vocation — they are the best. About two weeks ago I saw mother walking again. I never thought this would happen. … Thank you to everyone who brought my mother back.”


We invite you to consider donating to the mission of Genacross and helping to ensure the continued legacy of superior, compassionate care for which we are known. For more information, please contact us at 419.861.4964 or use our contact form.
