It is our mission to maintain Burcham Hills as the finest Life Plan Community and retirement lifestyle option.  You can help through your tax-deductible donations, which are greatly appreciated and always needed.  You can make a difference in the lives of our residents, as well as in our efforts to serve as a resource and solution for seniors and families across the greater Lansing area.

About the Foundation

The Burcham Hills Foundation was incorporated in April 1998.  The Foundation, a 501(c) (3), accepts tax-deductible contributions from corporations, businesses and individuals.  Our strategic focus is to attract the resources necessary to maintain the buildings, services and programming quality that have been a part of the retirement community from its inception.

Your gifts are the building blocks of the Foundation—and we thank you!
