Our Foundation makes Vinson Hall better.

Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation actively supports the residents and programs of all Vinson Hall Retirement Community residences: independent living, Arleigh Burke Pavilion assisted living and skilled nursing, and memory care at The Sylvestery. This support comes through the financial generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses.

Our 2023 accomplishments made possible by you.

At this year’s annual Gala fundraiser, An Evening in Casablanca, in September, we shared a video highlighting the Foundation’s accomplishments in 2023. These accomplishments are only possible thanks to our wonderful supporters! Please have a look to learn more.

For residents, not for profit.

Vinson Hall is a not-for-profit community supported by the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation (NMCGRF), a 501(c)(3) organization. All our revenue, whether resident fees, charitable donations or NMCGRF revenue, is reinvested into the community to enrich the lives of residents, not outside stakeholders.

Our mission.

We enrich the lives of those around us, so they are free to live life to the fullest.

Our mission’s history.

Our community began as a labor of love, conceived by the Naval Officers’ Wives’ Club of Washington, D.C. Back in 1959, this selfless group had the vision of creating a community that was “secure, companionable, and dignified” — a home where kindness and socializing would flourish. This seed of an idea for Navy widows quickly captured the attention of senior sea service leaders, as well as Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard wives’ clubs worldwide. Two years later, the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation was formed to support this endeavor.

On June 23, 1969, the vision came to life. Vinson Hall Retirement Community opened its doors to a senior living lifestyle of dignity, security and friendship to sea service widows regardless of financial status.

Over the years, the community expanded, and today we offer assisted living and nursing residences at Arleigh Burke Pavilion, which opened in 1992; The Sylvestery, a memory care assisted living residence opened in 2003; the Independent Living Building, which opened in 2014; and Arleigh Burke short-term rehabilitation, which opened in 2015.

We can only fulfill our mission, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Click here to make a gift to the Foundation.
