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, alumni bases, or insurance reimbursements that universities, 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 residents have outlived their resources, and need assistance with their monthly service fees.  We count on generous donors like you, to help us be able to continue to provide quality housing and services, to those residents who encounter a situation such as this.

We accept gifts of property, securities, and cash/credit.  Some have chosen to remember Waterman Communities in their wills and estate planning .  .  .  .  for which the residents of Waterman Village are very grateful for.

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 all likely be recipients of Waterman Village’s facilities and/or services one day.

Please pray about supporting our not-for-profit mission and ministry.

Living here at Waterman Village is like living in an extended family. From executive officers to service providers, the staff is exceptionally friendly and caring. Communication channels are wide open. Department heads keep residents reassuringly informed on what is going on in their respective area of operation. Most of our needs are met conveniently on campus, which looks like a village of one or two story dwellings. We compare life here to that on a cruise ship: pick and choose among a variety of daily activities on and off campus, or simply relax in your quarters.
