Bringing Community to Life Through Philanthropy

Our Philanthropic Mission

Judson Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization supporting the mission and vision of Judson communities and Bringing Community to Life through philanthropy.

History of Giving at Judson Smart Living®

Judson’s tradition of helping older adults lead richer and fuller lives dates back to its founding in 1906 when a group of compassionate women recognized a need for caring for Cleveland’s older adults and vowed to help. More than a century later, Judson continues to empower individuals to lead longer, happier, and healthier lives.

Resident Assistance

While all Judson residents have diligently saved for their retirement years, even the most careful financial planning and management can be disrupted. Gifts to this fund offset the $500,000 needed annually to cover the uncompensated cost of care for residents who have outlived their resources.
