Who We Are

The Michael R. Walker Foundation helps improve the lives of our Genesis and affiliated employees through Giving, Helping and Caring. Together, we show our strength through our compassion by supporting those who care for others during life’s severe hardships.  

All of us experience hardships during our life, many of which catch us off guard as we never think things like this will happen to us.  When the unimaginable happens, such as the loss of a family member, sudden extreme medical illness, or loss of our home due to a fire or flood, we may not know where to turn or what to do.  

In 2005, GEF (a non-profit charitable organization, separate from Genesis HealthCare), began as a way to help our employees through those unforeseen severe hardships to help them get back on their feet and try to move forward. In 2021, GEF was renamed to the “Michael R. Walker Foundation” in memory of Genesis Healthcare’s founding father to honor his legacy. The Foundation cannot solve every problem, but it can in some cases help out financially and/or put employees in touch with resources that can help long term. In fact, we are trying now more than ever to help through our “Education Outreach” sector to provide resources, education and training to help either prevent or prepare for life’s difficulties. 

If you are experiencing a hardship, please contact us today 610-925-2121. we are here to help you anyway we can.
