Philanthropy Sustains Us

At every turning point in the history of The Home for Aged People in Fall River, a non-profit organization, philanthropy has sustained us and enabled us to expand and meet the changing needs of the elderly.

In 1891, when Fall River’s leaders saw the need for a home for the city’s elderly, concerned citizens and founders committed their energies, as well as their personal resources, to raise the funds to build “a haven in old age for Fall River’s Gentlefolk of reduced circumstances.” Today, bequests and cash contributions enable us to provide care for Residents whose resources have been depleted.


The willingness of our friends to continue
The Home’s legacy of giving, be it large or small,
will most certainly determine our future,
and it will safeguard
the quality of care that is our hallmark.

The 1891 Society has been established to honor The Home’s original benefactors and the philanthropic spirit of all individuals who have made a bequest, planned gift or significant cash contribution. We invite you to become a member. The most rewarding dividend of joining The 1891 Society is the knowledge that you have joined a long succession of caring friends who have made The Home the exceptional place that it is today.

Please call our 1891 Society representative Julia Westgate-Lown at 508-677-0833 X102 or jlown@thehomelcc.org to learn more about your planned giving opportunities, or for assistance in structuring a gift that will qualify you for membership in The 1891 Society.
