Where to Give

Your gift to the Friendly Home can make a difference in a number of areas. Click one of these areas below to see more information about how to donate.

Memorial Fund

The Friendly Home Memorial Fund was established to benefit Members of the Home, and includes gifts given in memory of Members and friends of the Friendly Home.


Staff Appreciation

Donors seeking to recognize employees of the Friendly Home and Linden Knoll often choose to make a gift to this fund, which supports events and programs that benefit all members of our dedicated staff. Our annual holiday celebration, service awards recognition event and seasonal “Bagels on the Boss” are examples. Because our employees are strictly prohibited from accepting tips from Members or their loved ones, a gift to this fund in honor of an employee(s) is an excellent way to express your appreciation.


Annual Appeal

Funds raised during the Home’s Annual Appeal campaign are used to support Member care and services of the highest quality. A wide variety of Member educational, social and enrichment programs are also supported by our Annual Appeal.


Board Designated

The Friendly Home’s voluntary Board directs gifts to this fund on a discretionary basis to support special needs of the Home.


Staff Education

The Staff Education Fund supports staff training beyond that provided by the departmental budgets, including specialized training opportunities relating to geriatric care.
