Waterman Communities Foundation

General Donation


Your gifting ‘TRULY’ makes a difference, in the lives of the patients & residents we serve  

The Waterman Communities Foundation, an IRS not-for-profit charitable foundation since 1989, raises funds to help support the needs of the residents/patients of Waterman Village Retirement, Assisted Living, and Nursing Care communities in Mount Dora, FL.  Waterman Village doesn’t have access to the funding sources, reserves, university alumni bases, or insurance reimbursements that hospitals and hospices have. Your gifts go directly to helping us help our residents “live their best lives possible”.  Some of the recent projects that the Foundation has supported, include: buying personal items and furniture for residents in need, purchasing activities equipment for resident use, and purchasing medical equipment to help enhance the quality of care that our residents receive.

Some of our residents have lived with us for 20+ years. So, your gifts often support the same resident/patient for MANY YEARS, and not just a few days.

To learn more about how you can support our residents & patients, you can email our Foundation staff representative, Coleen Connolly, at Or, you can reach Coleen by phone at: (352) 383-0051, ext. 313. Thank you so much for your generosity!  We are all aging, and we’ll likely be recipients of Waterman’s facilitlies and/or services one day.

In 2002, I looked at a new Manor. It overlooked the Nature Preserve and was rested on the Woodbury Avenue unit below.  I liked what I saw, committed, and moved in near the end of the year.  It was a decision that I have never regretted.  For almost 17 years, I have lived in a Premier retirement community.  Among the advantages: everything on one floor, an excellent Lodge dining room, plus a casual Deli and an upscale Bistro with a top manager.  A Wellness Center, nicely equipped and a walking trail.  The landscaping is outstanding – always being maintained.  Nearby are a drug and grocery store, as well as a bank.  Well cared for sedans drive you to medical services.  I enjoy moving about in my golf cart, have a garage for it and my car and best of all, I can close the door behind me and go where I choose on the campus with a feeling of complete safety.  What else could I want!
