In-Kind Gifts
Donate Goods or Services

We're all about partnerships! Are you a master gardener or a landscape artist? Maybe you have a carpet cleaning business. Perhaps you’re a marketing firm looking to “adopt” a local charity. Chances are, we can use your help. Take a look at our Wish List for more information.

Give Toward
Renovations at
Bright Side Manor

With 65 residents and three dozen staff members, you can imagine that our building is always changing! There is always an opportunity to renovate or make improvements around our home. Check with us to see what might need fixing, and we’ll find a way to make it happen together.

Naming & Sponsorship

Between the Bright Side Manor and The Brookdale, we have many opportunities to create a lasting tribute to an individual or institution by naming a space in their honor. 

Sponsor a Resident

Perfect for larger corporations, banks, or foundations. Many older adults have incomes that are too high to qualify for Medicaid but too low to pay for assisted living. Very often, Bright Side Family will admit these residents despite their inability to pay. You can sponsor one of these residents, permanently or for just one month.

Honor a Loved One

Purchase a teak bench, a planter, a chair, or a brick for the yard at Bright Side Manor or the Bergen Avenue Senior Apartments, and we’ll have it engraved expressly for you or your loved one with your personal message. Peek at our brick garden for inspiration on your next visit to Bright Side.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

Ask your employer, rotary club, community group, church group, veterans' club, or women's group to host a party or a special event for our residents, or a volunteer day.

Fundraising Events

An ideal way to lend your support while getting to know us better and mingling with other supporters. You never know who you might meet at our fundraisers.
