Purpose and Activities

The foundation traditionally awards monthly stipends directly to elderly individuals and couples to help them remain in their home in safety and comfort, to protect their dignity and individuality, and to encourage them to continue contributing to their community. Stipendiary program applicants must be 65 years of age or older and must be referred by social service agencies and have an assigned social worker. Applicants must demonstrate a history of self-sufficiency and minimal dependence on private charitable or government assistance. Individuals should also demonstrate a history of volunteering or engaging in civic or cultural activities. Applicants may have assets up to $25,000, excluding their primary residence.
