“Investing in our staff and residents through superior care, exemplary services, and innovative programs is a hallmark of our great organization. Providing a comfortable, safe, and secure environment for those who live and work at RPP remains our top priority. I am particularly excited about the 2020 Fall Appeal to support the beautification and enhancement of the RPP community. With your support through the Fall Appeal, we hope to further nurture an environment that will be welcoming to future residents and visitors, comforting to our current residents and staff, and inviting to families when they return to the RPP campus.”

Whether it’s a donation to the Employee Scholarship Fund, the Campus Beautification Fund, or Memory Support Fund, your gift will help Roland Park Place realize its mission of being a leading provider of services for older adults and their families while fostering a strong sense of community, where everyone is known by name and every voice is heard and valued.


Roland Park Place is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Life Plan community. The growth of the Roland Park Place community is made possible by a long-standing tradition of generosity and stewardship in support of our commitment by enhancing the lives of Residents.

Many important projects have come to fruition through the support of donors. Every gift is important and benefits our residents, today and in the future.

Why does Roland Park Place need gifts and bequests? Because Roland Park Place has three sources of income: Resident fees, investment earnings, and charitable gifts. As a not-for-profit community, we reinvest all earned and donated income back into our community to better serve those who live here.

We are pleased to share that no Resident has ever been asked to leave Roland Park Place due to an uncontrollable financial inability to pay. This is made possible by the Resident Assistance Fund, just one of the many vehicles by which generous donors can give to Roland Park Place.

Below are types of programs and projects that are supported by Resident gifts and donations from family members and the community:

Employee Scholarship Fund

Your gift to the Employee Scholarship Fund, which supports employees’ continuing education plans, helps us recruit the best candidates and retain the talents of experienced employees. The Fund helps ensure that we provide exemplary care to all who benefit from RPP services.

Campus Beautification Fund

The Campus Beautification Fund helps to maintain the appeal of our campus so that residents can enjoy where they live and the beauty of the grounds while keeping amenities up-to-date for all to use. Let’s do our part to make RPP more environmentally friendly by providing transportation to our residents and staff with an electric vehicle. Gifts to RPP to purchase an electric vehicle not only improve the quality of life for our RPP community but the whole planet benefits as well!

Memory Support Fund

This fund was established to provide resources that will support person-centered interventions for Residents experiencing memory loss or cognitive impairment, and education for their family members. Roland Park Place has established a Memory and Music program designed to provide a personalized music program for Residents experiencing dementia. This program has shown consistent, positive results since being implemented.

Resident Assistance Fund

The Resident Assistance Fund provides a ready source of funds to cover the needs of Residents who have outlived their resources. Roland Park Place will never ask any Resident to leave due to an uncontrollable financial inability to pay. This is made possible by the Resident Assistance Fund, just one of the many vehicles by which generous donors can give to Roland Park Place.

Employee Hardship Fund

In keeping with our core values, Roland Park Place established the Employee Hardship Fund in June 2020. This Fund originated at the suggestion of residents and staff of Roland Park Place and reflects their desire to provide financial support to employees when they experience times of need. This Fund is supported by donations from employees, residents, families of residents, and other concerned individuals.

Roland Park Place’s Director of Philanthropy can assist donors and their advisors with matching their philanthropic, estate, and financial planning objectives to Roland Park Place’s funding needs and opportunities. Because we are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, gifts to Roland Park Place can receive tax benefits. For information regarding the Roland Park Place Philanthropy Program and for assistance on directing your donations in the most meaningful way, please contact Michelle Lacey at 410-243-4848 or mlacey@rpplace.org.
