Several years ago, New Cassel established the Helping Hands Fund. Helping Hands is supported by generous donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations. The New Cassel Foundation uses this fund to offset the financial needs of the residents at New Cassel and participants of the Franciscan Adult Day Center who live under the poverty level. All charitable gifts given to the Helping Hands Fund will provide support for the immediate needs of the residents or participants.


We are grateful for the devotion of our donors to people they will never encounter or receive thanks from. These donors give freely of their treasure, so other people may live with dignity.


Make a difference today by donating, purchasing or supporting our cause! Call Cindy Petrich at 402-390-5317 in The New Cassel Foundation.

***The New Cassel Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service.

Gifts/donations are tax deductible.

The Ryan Foundation donates to New Cassel Foundation.  Funds from the donation will be used to renovate and upgrade certain portions of the existing Ryan Dining Room, install an energy efficient HVAC system, and provide other necessary improvements to the facility.  To learn more about the Ryan Foundation please visit their website www.ryan.foundation
