Bethany Life Foundation


Choosing a retirement community is a significant decision, so it is imperative to stay informed. There are differences between for profit organizations and non-profit organizations. At Bethany Life, we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All money earned above operating cost is reinvested back into our programs and facilities. We do what we do as a service to our residents, not to respond to the wants and needs of investors and owners. At Bethany Life, you will also see:

  • Higher staffing levels than most for-profit facilities.

  • A commitment to serving our residents, regardless of financial status.

  • A dedication to investing in our programs and facilities.

While we desire to act as good stewards of the money that we are given, we are also dedicated to making the tools to be successful readily available to our staff and residents. Our top priority is that our dollars are poured directly back into our residents.

Our Mission

It is the mission of the Bethany Life Foundation to inspire, empower and support Bethany Life in its role and responsibility as the regionally recognized leader of aging services.

“With the major renovations to improve the Bethany facilities and care programs, we are blessed that we could make a significant contribution. The bistro is a nice addition to the Bethany facilities and services.” – Tom and Stevie Walsh, Ames, IA
