The Foundation of Leisure World

Meets the Second Wednesday of every month at 9:30 a.m. in Clubhouse II

The Foundation was formed in 1981 and tasked with enhancing the quality of life for Leisure World residents in the areas of culture, education and health.  This is done by furnishing equipment such as pianos, exercise machines and audio-visual systems that are not included in the community budget; by providing seed-money and guidance needed to form other organizations such as the Computer Center, the Center for Lifelong Learning, the Going-It-Alone-Club and the Retired Nurses Association; and by sponsoring performances by professional entertainers and educators so that the price of admission can be kept low and more residents can attend. 

Foundation of Leisure World – Annual Summary

The Foundation of Leisure World was established in 1982 and tasked with enhancing the quality of life for Leisure World residents in the areas of culture, education and health.  All of the funding comes from tax deductible donations from residents.  2013 was a very active year with total expenditures being $18,960.
