Michelle Lacey

Director of Philanthropy



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 to enhance the lives of Residents.

There are many important projects that 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:

Unrestricted Donations

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.

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.

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.
