Contributions to this unrestricted fund are vital at this time as this fund covers our highest fiscal priorities. General Fund donations are essential to maintain our day-to-day operations and meet special needs as they arise.
Financial Assistance Fund
Our financial assistance and benevolence policy is to support all patients, regardless of their ability to pay for Christian Science nursing care. Over the years, we have provided significant support. Your donation to this fund helps to alleviate a sense of financial burden during a patient’s stay at Arden Wood.
Christian Science Nurses Training Fund
A fundamental component of our mission is to provide training for dedicated Christian Scientists to become Christian Science nurses, based on Article VIII, Section 31, in the Church Manual. This fund directly supports Arden Wood’s Christian Science Nursing Arts training program.
Visiting Christian Science Nurse Service
Our team of experienced Christian Science nurses travels throughout the greater Bay Area to visit and care for Christian Scientists in their homes 24/7/365. Your contribution will help sustain this increasingly popular service.
Our goal is to be as self-sustaining as possible as soon as possible. Contributions to our Endowment Fund will help us reach our $15 million target.
Building and Restoration Fund
Our facility often requires the service of professional contractors in addition to our dedicated maintenance and housekeeping staff. Your gift will help keep Arden Wood’s buildings and grounds maintained and up-to-code.
Arden Wood staff members, called Associates, are not permitted to accept personal gifts or tips. The Associates Fund is open to donations from anyone who wishes to show appreciation for the services he or she has received at Arden Wood. Contributions to this fund are collected and shared equally among the Associates during the Thanksgiving season each year.
