How can you help?

Every day, donations are used to help provide rich and vibrant experiences for seniors. It can be simple, such as providing supplies for art programs, a new dance floor, or 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.

Your donation impacts lives

When you donate to the Walker Methodist Foundation, 100 percent of your dollars stay with our Residents, communities, programs, and team members. This fulfills our vision of being the best place to live and work.
