There are several ways to support the Sunset Communities mission.

From our humble beginnings in 1871 to the present day, Sunset Communities has gratefully accepted contributions from our community.

Residents’ Assistance Fund

Sunset makes a clear promise to each and every resident to provide financial support in three distinct ways. First, we will never ask anyone to leave their home with us, or do without care or services, because they have legitimately exhausted their funds. Second, to the extent that our funding allows, Sunset invites into our homes older adults who are without money, who are living in unsafe or unhealthy conditions, and who lack family to help them. Third, the Residents’ Assistance Fund pays for personal items that any resident cannot otherwise afford, and that are necessary for their overall well-being.

There are often items, big and small, that our locations could use to enhance our residents’ day-to-day lives. Each home has its own list, and the lists are updated often.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial giving provides a lasting remembrance of a loved one or friend. Your thoughtful gift expresses love and sympathy to the families of those whose memories you have honored, and at the same time provides support for residents living in our communities.

The family of those whose memories you honor will receive acknowledgement from us, informing them of your thoughtful tribute.

Commemorative Gifts

Sunset Communities’ commemorative-giving program is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one or a special friend in honor of their birthday, anniversary, or special occasion.

Employee Appreciation Fund

Donating to the Employee Appreciation Fund is a wonderful way to express gratitude to an individual or a team of caregivers. These funds are used to provide special parties, recognition prizes and gift certificates, and spontaneous expressions of appreciation.
