SFCJL Named a Nonprofit of the Year

Senator Scott Wiener selected the San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living as a Nonprofit of the Year in June. We’re thrilled and honored by the recognition as a critical part of California’s healthcare system.

New CEO Selected

The Board of Trustees for the San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living announced on May 30 that Dr. Adrienne Green has been selected to lead the organization as Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Green was most recently the Chief Medical Officer at UCSF. We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Green to our community and look forward to having our donors and partners meet her later this year. Her first day will be July 18.

Charitable Gift Annuity Rate Increase

Great news! Payout rates for a charitable gift annuity—the gift that pays you—are going up again. Payments are now higher than they’ve been in more than a decade. This news means even more financial security for you—and even more of our residents living their best lives thanks to your unceasing compassion. 

Care Around the Clock

Nurses (CNAs, LVNs, RNs) make up more than 60% of our campus staff. They are one of our most important resources and ensure that residents’ needs are met around the clock, whether 4pm or 4am.

In this highly competitive healthcare job market, nursing staff, including CNAs, are harder to find, and harder to keep. That’s why we’ve made the critical decision to increase nurses’ salaries across the board, from 10-20%, resulting in a $2.6M increase in costs. The change will help us recruit and retain the highest quality nurses so that we can continue to provide the highest quality care to all of our 400 residents.

Our nurses’ commitment to create a caring, safe, and home-like environment is critical to continuing our 150-year-old mission of enriching the lives of older adults. But they can’t do it without your help. Please consider making a gift to help us maintain the exceptional care we have been offering residents for more than a century.
