Jacob Schmidlapp and ERS Share Moral Standards

In 2017, the Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trusts, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee awarded ERS $100,000 to fund common space furnishings in 3 Affordable Living communities. The funding was on the condition that ERS would secure an additional $50,000 … at the Samaritan Awards Celebration, donors rose to the challenge! Watch this video to see the impact that donors had on the lives of the residents living in these communities.


Donors to ERS change lives!


Your Gift Matters

Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Each year we raise funds for our Good Samaritan Mission Fund, which provides:

  • Resident Financial Aid
  • Partners in Care
  • Spiritual services
  • Wellness programs
  • and much more for our residents.

Last year alone, ERS contributed more than $1.9 million to cover expenses above and beyond our resident fees. We raise those funds through donations, grants, and events to help us keep our longstanding promise that no resident be asked to leave the Marjorie P. Lee or Deupree House communities due to a lack of funds.

All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
