At the Immanuel Foundation, we believe that every senior living in Montana has the right to a safe, secure home in an engaging and supportive community. We work every day to make that vision a reality. Your financial support is crucial. The Foundation is supported by people who care that the elderly of our community have a safe and loving place to live out their days, people who want to see our program and services in the Flathead Valley for years to come: people like you.

The Immanuel Foundation hosted its inaugural Estate Sale on May 17-18, 2019 at the Gateway Community Center. Thanks to donations from generous residents of Immanuel Lutheran Communities and the Flathead Valley, we raised $21,000 for our Lodge Day Service program. These funds will enable Immanuel Lutheran Communities to offer its day program for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia to families at all income levels. We will be holding this event again in the future, and we’re collecting donations! Find out More about How to Donate Your Unneeded Items

You’re feeling grateful, and you want to help others feel as good as you do now. By giving through our Grateful Guest program, you make sure that the Retreat remains a center of healing for years to come.  Learn More about Our Grateful Guest Program

If you have a car or other vehicle you no longer need, why not donate it? Perhaps you’re no longer driving or simply ready to get rid of the junker taking up space in your driveway. Or maybe you don’t wish to pay for winterization and storage of your boat or RV. You can donate any unwanted vehicle to benefit the Immanuel Foundation—and you’ll receive a tax deduction while providing support for programs and services for seniors. Click Here to Donate
