Inspiring gift to Jewish Home

The Helen Diller Family Foundation has made a $3 million donation to the Jewish Home, with the funds to be used to enhance the grounds of the venerable San Francisco senior residence and skilled-nursing facility.

The Jewish Home recently launched a major expansion and remodel of its Silver Avenue campus. Diller funds will be used to add two small parks and to re-landscape the Home’s planned new café courtyard and fountain.

“As new supporters to our campaign, the Diller’s gift is so inspiring,” said David Friedman, chair of the fundraising campaign for the Jewish Home’s redevelopment project. “I’m very pleased the Helen Diller Family Foundation is endorsing the important work we do, and gratified that the Diller family believes the Jewish Home’s project and programs are worthy of their support.”

The Helen Diller Family Foundation is a supporting foundation of the S.F.-based Jewish Community Federation ad Endowment Fund. Diller, a native of San Francisco, died at age 85 in January 2015.
