Hearts for Our Homes Fundraiser

Open Your Hearts So Our Seniors Always Have a Home

Hearts for Our Homes is our annual spring fundraising campaign when Bethesda communities organize a number of fun-filled activities to encourage everyone’s participation. Proceeds from the campaign allow Bethesda to serve senior residents, regardless of their ability to pay.

The success of our Hearts for Our Homes campaign is a testament to the true commitment and passion our donors have for Bethesda seniors. Bethesda’s Foundation provided more than $14.6 million in long-term charity care and senior living financial assistance. Each year, the need to help an aging generation grows. Treasured generations of loved ones hope to count on your support with a gift that feels comfortable to you. Every gift is powerful, because it demonstrates a shared commitment to quality and compassion. No senior should worry about having to leave his or her home as the years go by. Your generosity can relieve a senior of this worry; help Bethesda deliver on assisting financially when seniors need it.
