Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Services, Senior Centers, Seniors

Mission: The Pearl Mae Foundation is a 501(c)3 faith-based charity with the mission of creating a community of support by being of service to others. Many Americans are living longer and are faced with decreasing abilities and increasing needs. Outliving their support systems and resources, many seniors find themselves in positions they never expected to be in; socially isolated, having to choose between buying food or medication, or even physically unable to care for themselves. For many senior citizens, Social Security is their only source of income. The average monthly payout to retired workers was $1,230 in 2012. Unfortunately, many are dependent on the fixed funds every month and are constantly under finical pressure due to the cost of living and health conditions. The Pearl Mae Foundation’s Senior Grant Program provides support to low-income seniors (ages 65 and above) in times of financial crisis. Our goal is to avoid the escalation of a financial crisis by providing a one-time grant that ranges from $250-$500. Every individual’s situation is different and exhibits their own unique needs. Some examples of needs we grant to include: • Medical co-payments including medications and specialist visits • Home reconfigurations to keep the senior safe in their home • Unforeseen bills to help in times of crisis • Food shortages If you would like more information please visit our website at www.pearlmaefoundation.org or email hello@pearlmaefoundation.org
