JCA Charitable Foundation gifts $1 million to Crown Center campaign


Crown Center for Senior Living has received a $1 million grant from the JCA Charitable Foundation. The donation will help fund Crown’s construction project being undertaken to replace the original structure on their University City site.

The project consists of building new, quality, affordable apartments for older adults who have limited financial resources, and includes community spaces where tailored programming is delivered to both residents and senior adults in the area.

The JCA Charitable Foundation supports new and creative community programs and activities that support the needy Jewish elderly in the St. Louis area. Their mission also includes the support of nutritional, religious, social, educational, healthcare and cultural programs and services related to Judaism as well as projects which address the financial and emotional needs of older adults.

Crown’s Board President Sally Altman added, “We are proud to have earned the trust of the JCA Charitable Foundation; and are extremely grateful for their generous gift to the capital campaign.”
