Learn About Fundraisers and Volunteerism


Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is your opportunity to make a difference. It was created to ensure the continued growth of essential services and programs.

Through the Annual Fund, we offer you the opportunity to give back to those seniors in our lives who have helped make us and the community better. Each contribution to the OLW Annual Fund goes directly to support ongoing programs that provide critical support to our residents.

Our 2015-2016 Annual Fund is dedicated to our Outdoor Beautification Project, in particular, a new Gazibo for the Courtyard. This area is used by our residents to visit with friends, family, and each other. With your generous contribution, we can advance our vision of assisting our residents in attaining their highest quality of life.

We invite you to consider leaving a legacy through your gift that will make a relevant difference in the lives of those who have given so much during their lives, yet asked for so little.
