When you contribute $25 or more, a decorated wooden angel will be placed on the Wintergarden lobby tree in time for the big tree lighting ceremony. Want to make sure they get your message? Dedicate an angel in your own name, the name of a loved one, or in honor of a special Aldersgate team member. Write your special dedication in the notes area of the donation form and your message will appear on our Angel Gram page.
Dedicate your angel early and inspire others to do the same!
This annual Angel Tree Offering supports resident financial assistance and serves as a lifeline for those who may outlive their resources— allowing Aldersgate residents to live with peace of mind and dignity.
If there’s one thing Aldersgate residents are known for, it’s bringing people together to celebrate friendship and make the world a better place. The Guardian Angel Fund is just another expression of what happens when modern elders put their energy behind a cause. Residents will celebrate the giving season on December 1 at the Aldersgate tree lighting ceremony!
With your help, the Guardian Angel Fund will be flying high when residents need a little help with making ends meet while living at Aldersgate. Supporting this fund allows you to be a “Guardian Angel” for our residents who experience financial hardship through no fault of their own.
“When I moved to Aldersgate, I had plenty of money to pay my way throughout my life. However, my husband was diagnosed with a catastrophic illness that took a toll on our finances and I was left with very few funds. The Guardian Angel Fund is the safety net I never expected I would need or use, but I am glad it is here. I am so thankful that I chose Aldersgate.”
—Aldersgate resident/Guardian Angel Fund recipient
“I give to the Aldersgate Guardian Angel Fund because my philosophy is ‘There but for the grace of God go I,’ which to me means, do unto others as you would have done unto you. My Aldersgate neighbors are my family, and I love the idea of giving what I can to support this fund.”
—Guardian Angel Fund Donor
