Our Patrons donate to Endowment Funds, Memorial Funds, or a fund in their name in perpetuity in support of our nursing home, assisted-living facility, senior services and elderly programs in New Jersey

The Personal Endowment Fund Program at the Jewish Home was established in 1992. It allows donors to create either unrestricted endowments for the general benefit of residents to be utilized at the discretion of the administration of the Home, or alternatively, to earmark funds for a specifically dedicated purpose. The principal investment of these endowments is never touched, but continues to grow through additional commitments, contributions and interest earned. The endowment also carries the donor’s name in perpetuity.

The endowments enrich the quality of the lives of our residents as well as those we serve in our Gallen Adult Day Health Care and outreach programs. Funds can be established starting at $10,000, or donors may consider making a gift of any amount to an existing Endowment Fund (existing Endowment Funds listed below).

Donors are invited to select or design a program and establish an endowment that will benefit our elders today, and will be there for generations to come.

We appreciate everything all the good folks at AL have done for our mom. Mom felt so very welcomed during her time there. From the caregivers to nurses and everyone - very caring and encouraging. It is so good to have a relationship with you all for any future respite or other needs.

We tried hiring a health aide directly and ended up having to provide last-minute backup and support. The 24-hour on-call and nursing support makes an incredible difference.
