Ways to Give

With a history of success also comes an aging infrastructure in need of significant maintenance. This fund provides for repair and improvements such as elevator modernization, upgraded mechanical systems, window and carpet replacement, and more. This fund helps ensure ongoing upkeep to maintain a safe and attractive facility in good working order.
This fund provides scholarships for residents who cannot afford the membership fee to the Wellness Center, an in-house fitness center supervised by an exercise physiologist, and supports personal needs such as hearing equipment, eyeglasses and walkers.

The Foundation provides 15-17 scholarships to the Wellness Center per month. $60 pays for one scholarship for one month, and $720 pays for one scholarship for one year. At least three residents, per year, receive personal needs subsidies.

This fund helps to fund health, personal, and supportive services for Golden West residents, so they can participate in activities of daily living.
The Rental Assistance Fund helps cover the gap between inadequate Medicaid reimbursement rates and the cost of providing housing and services to Golden West residents on Medicaid. The cost to the Golden West Foundation to subsidize one year’s rent for a Medicaid-eligible resident is approximately $20,490.
