The WellMed Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting seniors and their caregivers in several Texas and Florida communities. Based in San Antonio, Texas, the WellMed Charitable Foundation has been helping seniors and caregivers since 2006, distributing more than $3 million in grants and programs.

Three programs form the heart of WellMed Charitable Foundation’s support for seniors: the Senior Centers, which provide activities and education for seniors age 60 and over, the Caregiver SOS Resource Centers, which offer complimentary support programs, and the Caregiver TeleConnection, offering free group telephone learning sessions for caregivers. The goal of each program is to support seniors and their caregivers by emphasizing wellness, aging well, and living with a chronic disease.

In addition to these core programs, the foundation gives back to its community through the Generous Individual Value Everyone (GIVE) campaign. WellMed Charitable Foundation is the philanthropic partner of WellMed Medical Group, Inc., and the foundation’s employees donate to the GIVE Campaign each year, with contributions matched dollar-for-dollar by the foundation. Through this campaign, the foundation was able to donate $148,000 to 34 staff-selected charities in 2012, including both national and San Antonio-area charities. In addition to dollars given, employees donated nearly 20,000 hours of service in 2012. All of employee contributions go to charity, as the foundation subtracts no administrative fees or overhead from the campaign. Through 2012, the foundation’s GIVE Campaign has contributed more than $1.1 million to charitable organizations helping senior and caregivers.

WellMed accepts letters of inquiry regarding requests for support for organizations committed to helping seniors. The foundation’s Board of Directors meets periodically to review proposals, and all inquiries receive a response. Read Less
