Sunrise Good Samaritan Fund

The Sunrise Good Samaritan Fund (GSF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to help North American team members of Sunrise Senior Living who are suffering severe financial hardship resulting from a catastrophic event. Team members are eligible for financial assistance up to $3,000 for emergency situations in which the financial need exceeds team member’s available resources. In the past, the GSF has helped team members impacted by natural disasters including wild fires, hurricanes and floods. Due to COVID-19, the GSF anticipates an increase in requests for assistance, and we’re pleased to share that Sunrise has already raised more than $300,000 internally to support our team members across the U.S. and Canada.

We are determined to do all we can to fight COVID-19 together, and the health, safety, and wellbeing of our residents and team members remain our top priorities. In the face of uncertainty and significant challenges, our team members are returning to their communities each day and maintaining a level of normalcy and positivity that exceeds the expectations of our residents and their families. As a result, many members of our community have asked us how they can best support our team members during this difficult time.
