Goodwin House Foundation

The Goodwin House Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports both residents and staff by raising funds through a variety of philanthropic initiatives:

Greatest Area of Need: The Foundation’s support runs deep throughout the Goodwin House community. Generosity is an integral ingredient in “The Goodwin House Way.” It touches every aspect of our community in whatever is the most pressing need at the time, and it allows for gratitude and joy in every donor who contributes. Giving to Goodwin House Foundation ensures you are making a difference in people’s lives—when you support residents, you support staff, and when you support staff, you support residents. This circle of generosity is at the core of all that we do at Goodwin House. Giving to the Foundation means you are making the correlation between the life you or your loved one enjoyed with Goodwin House and the generosity it took to make that happen.


The Fellowship Program: Our confidential financial assistance fund supports residents who, through no fault of their own, have depleted their assets. For more than five decades, Goodwin House has been able to guarantee that no resident would ever be asked to leave because of financial resources. Currently, the Foundation provides approximately $800,000 a year in fellowship support. The residents who receive this support—and their family members—are extremely grateful for the peace of mind that this program offers.


Our Staff Support Program: Through the generosity of residents, family members, staff and friends of Goodwin House, the Foundation provides significant financial support to staff. We have financial assistance programs for staff members who experience unexpected financial setbacks. We offer tuition support and other professional development opportunities so that our staff can thrive in their lives, and realize their career and educational aspirations. Most recently, our Staff Support Program offered grants to cover US citizenship application fees. We are proud that 28 members of our staff have received grants (for the $725 application fee) to assist them in their journey to US citizenship.
