The Ryan Foundation donated over $680,000 to the New Cassel Foundation in February of 2022.
The New Cassel Foundation benefits the New Cassel Retirement Home, which is both a retirement home and licensed assisted living center in Omaha that encourages full living by providing services and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle.
Co-founder of the Ryan Foundation, Eileen Ryan, was an advocate of New Cassel’s ministry during her lifetime. She donated significant funds to establish the Ryan Dining Room in 2010.
New Cassel recently modernized the Ryan Dining Room and kitchen in 2022, and the organization celebrated the conclusion of this project funded by the Ryan Foundation’s 2021 donation with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The Ryan Foundation’s recent donation will be used to assist New Cassel with the cost of replacing the existing HVAC system with a state of the art - 99% energy efficient – and user-friendly heating and cooling system. The total cost of the project is estimated at $2.1 million. With the latest donation, the Ryan Foundation has donated roughly $1.8 million towards this project to date.
