About Us

We're looking for a Fund Administrator, a part-time flexible position supporting our board and grantees. See details and application procedures on the job description. Application deadline: September 10, 2021. 
What We Do

Established in 2005, the Marshall Home Fund is a non–profit charitable foundation that provides modest program grants to public agencies, non–profit organizations and town departments that serve older Watertown residents. We also provide limited financial assistance to Watertown residents age 55 and older who are in urgent need and are referred by a local agency.

How It Began

Marshall Home, originally known as the Watertown Home for Old Folks, was founded in 1908 through the benevolence of Alfred and Nancy Groeschner. As Watertown's first "rest home" it provided a caring residential environment with support services for its residents. After 94 years of operation, Marshall Home closed in 2002. Today its spirit lives on in the Marshall Home Fund.
Promoting an Age Friendly Community

An Age Friendly Community is one where older residents can be healthy and productive. The World Health Organization and the AARP have established specific goals for a community seeking to be age friendly.  Grantees of the Marshall Home Fund provide programs and services that address many of these goals.
