2020 will mark the 18th year of The Foundation scholarship being awarded to a well-deserved staff member. The scholarship provides assistance for our staff to further their education, whether it’s course work in college, high school, vocational-technical school, professional certification or job-related training.
Lifelong Learning Institute
The Lifelong Learning Institute was spearheaded by Brandermill Woods in 2004. Chesterfield County residents 50 and older can take advantage of a learning environment where the goal is intellectual stimulation with a dose of fun, where there are no prerequisites, homework is optional and exams are prohibited.
A Brandermill Woods resident, because of circumstances beyond their control who can no longer afford to fully pay their monthly service fee, may be eligible for financial assistance to go towards rent, once they meet the criteria set forth and approved by The Foundation Board of Directors.
The Foundation donated money for the transformation of an outdoor space at The Health Care Communities into a therapeutic garden. This space includes a walking path, pergola, wheelchair accessible swing and beautiful landscaping.
Craft Shop Equipment
Brandermill Woods renovated a storage building at The Health Care Communities into a Woodshop for the residents to enjoy. The Foundation funded the new equipment for the space, and the residents have really taken advantage and appreciate the added amenity.
