Please consider supporting one or more of the following fundraising priorities:

Resident Assistance Fund
Mary’s Woods is a home for life. Sometimes through no fault of their own, residents face difficulties meeting their basic monthly costs. When that happens, the Resident Assistance Fund serves as a safety net. Knowing the Resident Assistance Fund is there provides the community with a profound sense of security.

Employee Education Fund
All employees at Mary’s Woods are a vital part of our community. This fund provides support for continuing education and skill-development opportunities to ensure that employees maximize their potential as well—professionally, personally and as leaders in the wider world.

Innovation Fund
Innovation and creativity are required to meet the holistic needs of an aging society that is rapidly expanding and growing. Mary’s Woods is committed to a socially just society and is actively engaged in developing a network of advanced services for a wide variety of alternative housing options, home care services and strategic partnerships. This fund supports the development and launch of new programs that emphasize individual and community-wide wellness, growth and life-long learning, and Mary’s Woods expansion with Mary’s Woods in Your Neighborhood.

Capital Projects/Improvements Fund 
Mary’s Woods wouldn’t be the vibrant and comfortable place it is to live without the generous donations of private donors, community partners, residents and family members. We use Capital Projects/Improvements funds to augment livability, efficiency and operations so that Mary’s Woods continually adapts to the needs of our members.

Mary’s Woods General Fund
Sometimes our most pressing needs cannot be categorized and therefore are not supported by specific funding. The General Fund gives donors the option to contribute in an “all-purpose” way that allows Mary’s Woods to allocate funds immediately for lasting benefits.
