A Culture of Giving

This is a special year as our Philanthropy Council launches its first structured philanthropy effort. The Council dedicates this inaugural year to a new Team Member Development initiative to deepen and expand programs for our employees. Team members are on the front lines of what makes Whitney Center a special place. One generous resident has seeded this initiative to provide opportunities for education and personal enrichment courses. Your contribution will ensure the viability of this program now and into the future.

Our person-centered philosophy, leadership and experience in programming and healthcare services is recognized by accreditation organizations within our industry and highly regarded by our community. Our vision is to improve aging for more people, at Whitney Center and in our Greater New Haven community. When you contribute to the Whitney Center Gift Fund, you are joining us in improving the quality of life for residents and staff and helping to make positive change in aging services.
