The Altenheim Foundation

It all started with a group of women who envisioned providing a safe haven for women in their later years. With generous donations from the community, West Side Deutscher Frauen Verein became a reality. The first resident came to live in what was referred to as “The Altenheim” in 1892.

Today, 125 years later, this strong sense of philanthropy and compassion continues through The Altenheim Foundation, a 50l(c) (3) organization. It serves as the fundraising arm of Altenheim Senior Living, a not-for-profit Life Plan Community. It provides for programs and services that enrich residents’ lives. Through the generosity of families, friends and the community, The Foundation is able to provide needed medical equipment for the comfort of residents, programming such as the Music & Memory Program and provide long term care for those who can least afford to meet the ever rising costs of care.

There are many ways to support The Foundation. Contributions are gratefully accepted by the Foundation for general, as well as specific, donor-related purposes. All gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. Click here to view Ways to Give. Your gift matters. . .it will make a difference.
