SantaFe Senior Living Foundation

Helping Grateful People Put Passion into Action

People love our senior living communities and the way our associates enrich the life of each senior we serve. The foundation provides grateful people with a way to express their thanks through charitable donations. We’d love to have a conversation with you to find a way to put your passion for one of our communities into action.

We’d love to talk with you about how we can be the best steward for your philanthropic desires

SantaFe Senior Living Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization conducting business in the Gainesville area as ‘The Village at Gainesville Foundation,’ in the Bonita Springs area as ‘The Terraces at Bonita Springs Foundation,’ and in the greater Miami area as ‘East Ridge at Cutler Bay Foundation.’ These names are filed with the Florida Secretary of State and may be used as our legal names. Donated funds are pooled together for investment purposes but accounted for separately. Money donated for one of our senior living communities may only be used to benefit that specific community.

We also have community-specific funds to help defray costs of covering expenses for residents who can longer pay. To learn more about how we fund raise, read our document “Ethical Standards of Practice for Fundraising with Seniors.

We’re very proud of the work we accomplish on behalf of our donors. We’d love to talk with you about how we can be the best steward for your philanthropic desires. You can learn more on Guidestar.
