ways to give

The Danish Home Foundation

The Danish Home Foundation is a not-for-profit organization funded and operated 100% by private donations and endowments. These donations preserve the purpose and spirit of The Danish Home, envisioned by its founders, to provide care and a safe, comfortable haven for older people.

The Danish Home was busy renovating and remodeling to meet the needs of today’s seniors.
