Generations Family Foundation

Connecting giving hearts with those in need.

Our History

The Generations Family Foundation (GFF), was established as a resource for those wanting to assist others, or get assistance for themselves, in times of hardship or unexpected crisis.

We take great pride in our Generations communities and cherish our residents and employees. At Generations, everyone is family—and we take care of family by fostering a culture of love and respect, encouraging growth and vitality, and celebrating the excitement of living every day.

 

Our Purpose

We’re dedicated to providing short-term, immediate relief to employees and residents of the Generations family of companies and communities in need of financial assistance due to natural disaster, family death, medical emergency, or other unexpected crisis or distress.
