Trousdale Community Foundation, the Philanthropic program of TLC.

Caregivers at TLC provide excellent care and activities for daily living, and this is reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid. However, these government reimbursements do not cover all the costs associated with provider expense. They cover room and board, but do not cover daily life enhancements.

It’s our hope that through our formal giving program, we can do EVEN MORE for our residents and devoted employees to improve their world and fulfill out mission in an inspiring way, together.

Our vision is that this program will grow to have a sustainable, long term impact for both residents and employees.

The mission of the Trousdale Community Foundation Philanthropy program is two-fold, a hybrid of financial resources, serving both the care receiver and caregiver:

Giving For Residents

To raise funds through financial gifts to help fund the greatest needs of residents who do not have the ability to pay for themselves and are not otherwise covered.


To supplement or provide financial discounts to residents with no financial resources to cover their housing costs.

Comfort and Fun

Providing things like clothing (socks, blankets), extra food (ice cream, food trucks), activities, room enhancement (wallpaper, etc.) and more.

Building and Grounds

To enhance Memory Care facilities or for updating/upgrading a courtyard or activities area.

Giving For Employees

To help employees with educational scholarships to advance their care skillsets and an emergency fund for them when unexpected hardships occur.


Funds are collected in a dedicated account to empower employees to pursue their educational goals and advancements with the intent of providing an even higher level of skilled care for our residents

The Employee ‘Heartship’ Relief program

Funds are collected in dedicated accounts to support employees when devastating and extraordinary situations occur in their lives that create unexpected financial hardships. For example: Uninsured losses for damage to their residence caused by fire, flood, criminal action or other disasters. The Heartship Relief Program also supports personal eviction, medical, Utility shut-offs and access to food and needed prescriptions.

Free Housing

New hire employees working full time in good standing are eligible for Free Housing for up to one year. Our goal is to assist those in need of housing and employment.

Trousdale’s Philanthropy Program is to provide a dedicated and confidential framework that allows for a wonderful vehicle for all who are passionate about the care and best interest of our residents. For board members, employees, residents’ families, stakeholders, perhaps even residents themselves, to invest in our residents and employees by making donations of time and financial contributions.
