It's Your Opportunity to GiveBIG!
It’s time! This is your opportunity to GiveBIG and respond to the unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. GiveBIG is an annual effort to raise funds for nonprofit organizations. The Hearthstone has been a participating organization for the last five years.
Senior living communities everywhere are under enormous strain during these unprecedented times. The Hearthstone could use your support now more than ever. Please donate today. Donations accepted through May 15.
We have an urgent need for funds to support our Benevolent Care/Resident Assistance program. This program provides assistance to residents in financial need, providing quality of life when one needs it the most. Would you consider making a gift to help your neighbors who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their financial resources?
We are grateful for you and your gifts that support our mission. May you and those you love be blessed with good health.

Expressing gratitude through giving.
As a nonprofit, we see success through a different lens than for-profit organizations. While financial strength and security matter, once basic commitments are provided for, we believe there are other values worth elevating: happiness, future security and peace of mind.
To that end, The Hearthstone Endowment Fund supports what’s most important through generous donations back to our community. From enriching the lifestyle of the community through arts, music and entertainment to helping residents in their time of greatest need, our Endowment Fund helps our extended family in many ways.
Here are a few of the ways donors have made a difference:
Paying It Forward: The Resident Assistance Fund
Another part of what makes The Hearthstone so special is the Resident Assistance Program. This is a fund built by resident-donors and friends and family members of residents who want to help out their neighbors and friends.
Should a Hearthstone resident ever outlive their financial resources through no fault of their own, they are eligible to apply for the Resident Assistance Program to supplement their income and allow them to remain at The Hearthstone.
A Gift of Music: The Entertainment Fund
Former resident Ms. Jackie C. left a sizable grant devoted to community entertainment. As a lifelong musician herself and an avid fan of classical music, Ms. C. designated her grant to fund concerts, musicians and ensembles, a gift that will touch residents for years to come.
Getting Around: The Transportation Fund
For those residents without a car, or family or friends to take them to appointments, shopping or social visits, the Transportation Fund helps pay for the purchase of new community vehicles.
Like a Family: The Greatest Need Fund
As a community of caring people, our residents, staff and everyone related to The Hearthstone are ready to help. The Greatest Need Fund was created to take advantage of unexpected opportunities, as well as to deal with unexpected problems. This fund enables the Board of Trustees to swiftly respond to an urgent need or promising plans that will enhance the quality of life and care for our residents.
What’s Your Passion?
Your gift can be personal and reflect your passion! Whether made today or through estate planning, you can choose a fund that suits your interests.

I say, “The Hearthstone is a Special Place to live.” Yes! I moved to Hearthstone about a year ago. Before ‘life’s restrictions’ and masks I enjoyed new friends in the dining room, common area presentations and activities, walks around Green Lake. During the COVID period of seclusion the staff has been most caring of us; ‘Heroes’ we call them. I felt safe from the beginning. I can still walk Green Lake or visit the Wellness Center five days a week to exercise on high-tech equipment (with masks and a limited number of exercisers). And, massages are again offered. I’m happy I made the decision to move to Hearthstone when I did!
A Disneyland for Seniors” was my initial description for family and friends of my transition to the Hearthstone. I so enjoyed the dining, activities (especially ping-pong), exercise and access to Green Lake Nature walks. That all came to a halt in March ‘20 with the arrival of Covid-19. Now I am grateful to be cocooned as a “bird in a gilded cage” to wait out this pandemic. A monthly newsletter “the Spark” with educational articles and enriching life stories leaves me humbled to be neighbors with such special folks. Hearthstone even has two centurion residents as role models!
My move into the Hearthstone’s Cove West, just over a year ago, was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My criteria for the decision included; a facility with a continuum of care, flat terrain for walking, located in or near a vibrant community, and, of course, value. All my criteria was met at the Hearthstone in the Green Lake Neighborhood, with the added plus pleasant, welcoming neighbors and a staff ready to assist me in any way. I definitely made the right decision.
Selecting a place to spend your final years is a difficult, and very private, decision. My wife and I moved into The Hearthstone about a month before the pandemic shutdown. And after several months of living here under shutdown conditions we are so pleased with our choice. We have felt very safe, comfortable, and well looked after. Though we've not been able to establish new social relationships the way we would ordinarily do, we have enjoyed sharing the experience with our new acquaintances.
The transition to my new home has been seamless. The residents and staff have been welcoming and helpful all along the way and I have appreciated how light and open it feels here at Hearthstone.
Since moving into Cove East, over 7 months ago, we can now say that we love our new home. That being said, we can’t say that it has been easy. The corona virus has presented us all with challenges. BUT, we are so glad to be living in this community of like-minded neighbors. Even though we only know each other with masks, we have found everyone at Cove East to be friendly and caring. We are all anxious for the day when we will be able to socialize in person. I know we are all looking forward to a more normal life.
