Following in the footsteps of our benevolent founder, Father William O’Connor, philanthropy continues to play an important role in our nonprofit mission.  When people (and companies) join us to provide exceptional services to seniors in the greater Stockton community … we celebrate!

With only 2% of all giving in the United States directed toward senior causes, we know our work will be a challenge as we build relationships and partnerships to change the focus toward helping seniors. We hope you will join us!

Ways to Give

Guardian Angel Program

If you or a family member would like to recognize the exceptional care provided by your Guardian Angel – an employee, volunteer, or special caregiver – you can make a donation in his or her honor to O’Connor Woods.

Your Guardian Angel will receive a card informing him or her of your thoughtful gift, as well as a custom-crafted lapel pin to wear proudly. In addition, your tribute gift is tax deductible and will help fund O’Connor Woods Resident Assistance Fund. Your generosity will help us help others.

What Are the Needs at
O'Connor Woods?

Resident Assistance Fund

At O’Connor Woods, our residents enter with the financial resources that should sustain them. Sometimes, however, fate intervenes and disrupts this most careful planning.  A resident might simply outlive his assets or she might need extensive medical care. We want to ensure our residents remain in our care and enjoy the twilight of their lives even if resources become an issue.

A gift to the Resident Assistance Fund will help your neighbors when they need it most.

O’Connor Woods Employee Scholarship Program

Through the generosity of resident donors, the scholarship program will provide employees of O’Connor Woods financial assistance to support their educational ambitions. We work and live together to make O’Connor Woods a special place.
