Beloved Birthday Luncheons Return in 2023

Birthday luncheons are one of the most beloved traditions at the San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living. For decades, every month we would host a special lunch to celebrate residents with a birthday in that month. Relatives were welcome to join them. This February, we’re excited to reboot the monthly tradition all year long. Support us as a luncheon sponsor and join our residents in an elegant three-course meal. And of course, watch with delight as the oldest one cuts the cake. 

28th Annual Golf Tournament

Mark your calendars for the28th Annual SFCJL Golf Tournament, Cocktail Reception & Awards Ceremony on Monday, May 15 when we return to the newly remodeled Lake Merced Golf Club. We’re looking forward to this fun day of camaraderie, contests, cocktails, and of course, your commitment to benefit our residents. Josh Zander will be back to lead our popular golf clinic for all participating golfers.

Your generosity allows us to be patient-centered and family-focused. Founded on a Jewish tradition of caring for our community’s elders, the values we maintain today compel us to care for all who need it.

Charitable Gift Annuity Rate Increase

Great news! Payout rates for a charitable gift annuity—the gift that pays you—just went up for the second time in just six months. 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.
