Services we support:

  • Benevolent Assistance Fund This fund provides the safety net for those residents whose financial resources have not kept up with the cost of living. Many have outlived their resources. The Benevolent Assistance Fund provides financial assistance when all other resources have been expended. Annually, the Caring for Generations offering helps to support the Benevolent Assistance Fund.

  • Benevolent Assistance Endowment Fund Gifts to this Endowment Fund are held and invested in perpetuity. The earnings from this Endowment are used to support the financial needs of residents who have outlived their financial resources.

  • Community Enhancements Each residential community has its unique environment and atmosphere. Foundation gifts allow special projects to be completed in each community that enhances the comfort, welfare, and enjoyment of the residents. Projects such as:

  • Honorable Service Grants for ministers and church workers Ministers and professional church workers may be eligible to receive an Honorable Service Grant in order to enjoy a secure, fulfilling retirement.

  • Volunteering Westminster Retirement Communities Foundation enjoys opportunities to be of service in the various communities. Helping with special events, distribution of information to other residents, planning for annual activities are just some of the places for residents to be of special help. Contact the Development Officer in your community to offer your services.

The Westminster Retirement Communities Foundation enhances the lives of people living in our communities by administering gifts and bequests so that generous donors will always know that their gifts will be used in the manner they direct.

Founded in 1970 in support of a single Westminster community, the Foundation today, through the generosity of our residents and their estates, assists people in our communities statewide who have outlived their financial resources.

Through its Benevolent Assistance Endowment Program, the Foundation stands ready to provide confidential assistance to people in our communities whose financial resources have become depleted due to extenuating circumstances and through no fault of their own.
