Wesley Community Foundation is

Revolutionizing Senior Living


Wesley Community Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides philanthropic support for the mission and vision of Wesley.

 

A History of Giving

Founded in 1944, Wesley provides a network of housing and health care services for older adults in the Puget Sound region. Methodist Reverend Dr. Stanley Logan founded Wesley based on the principle that older adults should be able to age with respect and dignity. Wesley has remained true to that founding principle and is now a leader in senior housing and care services with an exemplary reputation for quality, compassion and care.

A Mission to Serve

Continuing the legacy of our founder by fostering a culture of philanthropy, Wesley Community Foundation helps enhance the lives of older adults and their families. The Foundation supports wellness and educational programs for residents and staff, funds improvements to make Wesley communities even better and develops capital campaigns to create new Wesley communities. Your generous spirit helps Wesley keep its commitment to place people ahead of profit.

The Stanley Logan Club recognizes the annual contributions of donors totaling $1,000 or more in a calendar year. These gifts can support a number of Wesley charitable needs, such as resident or staff assistance and programs, capital campaigns and the greatest need.

Cornerstone, Pillar and Visionary Societies

The Cornerstone ($10,000), Pillar ($25,000) and Visionary ($50,000) societies recognize the cumulative contributions by donors over time. When a contributor's cumulative and irrevocable giving reaches the specified level, they become a permanent member of the society unless they move to a higher designation.

Legacy Society members have made a deferred gift commitment to support Wesley's communities or programs. A deferred gift refers to a will bequest, beneficiary designation, charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder or lead trust and other deferred-gift instruments. New members receive a Legacy Society welcome when a documented deferred-gift commitment to Wesley Community Foundation is received.
