Restricted endowments have been established for a specific program or area by donors who wish to establish a fund in perpetuity. Interest from these funds is used for the purposes specified and the principal remains untouched. We welcome additional contributions to these existing funds, as well as the establishment of new funds that reflect the special interests of donors and the needs of Steere House .

Pearl Kameny was a long term resident at Steere House. When she celebrated her 100th birthday, her daughter, Joan Gelch, and Dr. Melvyn Gelch established the Pearl Kameny Lectureship in Geriatric Medicine. The aging population requires well-trained clinicians and the Kameny Lectureship provides an educational program that contributes to that goal. The Lectureship is held every year for medical staff and clinicians at Lifespan hospitals; Steere House staff; students, residents and fellows of Brown University School of Medicine; and Carelink members.
