Support Our Mission

Thank you for taking a moment to consider making a gift to Bluestem PACE. Your gift inspires our not-for-profit mission, supports the program and helps carry out care to participants at the highest level possible. Please use our secure online donation system to donate any amount you wish.

Your gift will help support the Good Neighbor Fund. The Bluestem PACE Good Neighbor Fund is a ministry of Bluestem PACE and its loyal supporters. This fund is in place to assist participants who encounter unforeseen circumstances (i.e. modifications to a participant’s home, updated heating/cooling, extermination services, etc.) and to assist Bluestem PACE in providing high quality services.  Your gift supports Bluestem PACE’s mission to:

  • Ensure the highest level of commitment and care possible
  • Enable participants so they can remain safe and independent in their home as long as possible
  • Provide a comprehensive, managed-care program for each participant
  • Focus on treating the whole person
  • Provide loving compassion while fostering dignity and respect

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Fund Advancement Office at 316-836-4879 or 620-327-3413.

A Gift in your Will

A gift made through your will can mean a tremendous difference for participants at Bluestem PACE. These gifts can be made for a specific amount, a percentage of your estate or by leaving the remainder of your estate to Bluestem PACE after all your instructions are completed.

Gifts that Pay you Income

A charitable gift annuity is a way to make a gift to Bluestem PACE while receiving a fixed rate of return for the remainder of your life.

A charitable remainder trust is an arrangement in which property or money is put into a trust to benefit Bluestem PACE, but the donor continues to use the property and/or receive income from it while living. The beneficiaries receive the income, and the charity receives the principal after a specified period of time. 

Gift through Life Insurance

Designate Bluestem PACE as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. You can also gift an insurance policy to Bluestem PACE with Bluestem PACE as the owner of the policy.

Gift through Retirement Plans

Make Bluestem PACE a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), SEP, Keogh, or other qualified retirement plan.  It does not cost anything to make this change. The administrator of your plan can give you a one-page form to make this change.

  • It is revocable.
  • It reserves all of the assets for your use if you need them.
  • It can save taxes for you and your estate.
  • It can make more money in your estate available to your family and friends.

Gifts of Grain

You can gift grain to benefit Bluestem PACE while also deducting the cost of production and potentially qualifying for other tax benefits as well. You sell the commodity, and the buyer writes the check to Bluestem PACE (also forwarding a scale ticket or auction receipt). Or, you can designate an amount of grain to be held at an elevator for Bluestem PACE, notify the fund advancement office, and we will direct the sale. 

Contact Megan Smith at 316-253-6807 for more information on this option.

Medical Equipment Donations

Bluestem PACE has a need for durable medical equipment, such as hospital beds, lift chairs, ramps for homes, etc. These items can be new, but do not have to be. Bluestem PACE is happy to accept used items that are in good condition.
