The Personal Endowment Fund Program at the Jewish Home was established in 1992. It allows donors to create either unrestricted endowments for the general benefit of residents to be utilized at the discretion of the administration of the Home, or alternatively, to earmark funds for a specifically dedicated purpose. The principal investment of these endowments is never touched, but continues to grow through additional commitments, contributions and interest earned. The endowment also carries the donor's name in perpetuity.

The endowments enrich the quality of the lives of our residents as well as those we serve in our Gallen Adult Day Health Care and outreach programs. Funds can be established starting at $10,000, or donors may consider making a gift of any amount to an existing Endowment Fund (existing Endowment Funds listed below).

Donors are invited to select or design a program and establish an endowment that will benefit our elders today, and will be there for generations to come.
