The Wingate Living Employee Relief Fund


Caring for our family of employees

The Wingate Living Employee Emergency Relief Fund is a charitable organization established to support the employees of Wingate Living and its affiliates. Operating independently from Wingate Living, its mission is to provide financial support to employees affected by severe financial hardship due to unforeseeable circumstances.

The Wingate Living Employee Emergency Relief Fund provides financial assistance in the form of a grant for employees of Wingate Senior Living and its affiliates who are experiencing severe, unexpected economic hardship and who are unable to afford basic housing, utilities, food, clothing, and other essential living expenses, which was caused by a Qualifying Event.

At Wingate Living, we’re here to help any employee in need because we’re a family, and that’s what families do. And you can help, too. Employee contributions are tax-deductible, and will provide an emergency resource for a co-worker in critical need.
