The Foundation's Four Pillars

Through our Four Pillars, the Foundation provides critical financial assistance for housing and support of residents who outlive their resources. We offer educational programs, workshops, and services to enrich the lives of all Rose Villa residents, their family members and the community. The Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that works in close collaboration with Rose Villa Inc. to assist with the financial needs and wellbeing of residents.

Resident Assistance

Core to the mission and fundraising work of the Foundation since 1963, this pillar provides financial assistance for housing and care to residents who have depleted their financial resources. Donations to this pillar provide a safety net that ensures that residents who have lived at Rose Villa for seven years will have resources necessary to continue to live at Rose Villa while maintaining their dignity and independence.

Education Enrichment

Knowing that we never stop learning, this pillar helps promote the financial, physical, mental, and social wellbeing of residents, family and the community through cutting-edge workshops and innovative speakers series.

Professional Services Support

This pillar provides support in the form of confidential one-on-one financial coaching and access to a vetted list of professional financial planners, fiduciaries, legal counselors, and tax service providers.


Donations to this pillar allows the Board of Directors to determine how best to use your gift and leverage operational funds for specific improvements or programs that enhance the well-being of residents at Rose Villa.
