ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
Walker Methodist Foundation raises funds to support the services, programs, and communities of Walker Methodist. We invite you to join us in supporting the wants, needs, and dreams of Walker Methodist Residents.
Our Foundation was established in 1975 to help ensure that the highest quality of housing, programming, and healthcare was available to seniors.
Marilyn Peller Nelson
Executive Director, Walker Methodist Foundation
It is my honor and pleasure to get to know so many of our Residents, Patients and Employees. Whether I'm playing chair volleyball at Westwood Ridge in West St. Paul, serving at Happy Hour at Highview Hills in Lakeville or enjoying dinner with Bill and Dottie Bevis from Walker Place (left), I know that the work that is being done in the Foundation and throughout our Walker Methodist housing communities is making a difference. Together, we are enhancing the lives of our Residents and Patients every single day. I am humbled to serve our Residents and Patients, honored to work with such dedicated and caring employees, and committed to being a good steward of the financial resources entrusted to Walker Methodist by our donors.Learn More
How Can you help?Every day, donations are used to help provide rich and vibrant experiences for seniors. It may be a simple project such as supplies for art programs, a new dance floor, or providing Spanish television for a Resident. Or bigger projects such as a new community room or bus. Our goal, with your help, is to create even more opportunities for rich and full lives.
WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?
When you donate to the Walker Methodist Foundation, 100 percent of your dollars stay right here with our Residents, communities, programs, and employees. This fulfills our Vision of being the best place to live and work.
Throughout the year, the Foundation hosts a variety of events to help build funds to support the services, programs, and communities of Walker Methodist.
