Ways to Give


"I wouldn't leave Wesley Woods if you offered me the Taj Mahal"

Joseph F. Giordano, Retired CDC Executive & Wesley Woods resident


"When you give to Wesley Woods, you assure that older adults experience all the dignity and love that they experienced when they were younger."

John Ethridge, Attorney at Law & Wesley Woods Donor

Wesley Woods is a non-profit - solely focused on the mission and ministry of caring for elders throughout North Georgia. But the life-changing work of Wesley Woods doesn't happen without the generosity and support of caring donors.

We rely on donations from individuals, foundations, church congregations and businesses to fund benevolence care to those whose assets have become consumed by medical bills or who have simply outlived their savings, an increasingly common scenario as people live longer. Can you imagine having the health to live independently with dignity and purpose, but the fear of not being able to afford and experience a fulfilling life?

You gifts also support programs like wellness and chaplaincy, as well as ongoing improvements to our communities.

Without the support of others, those who call Wesley Woods home wouldn't have all that they need to live independent lives full of grace and purpose.
