In late 2010, the generous gifts of friends saved us from closing our doors forever …. We never want to reach that point again, yet we must keep our fees within reach of our members.

Not only do we offer classes, programs and trips, we are a resource for information and direction on a variety of issues. Last year we had a member who needed transportation for a medical procedure the next day! That next day, he was picked up at 5:30 am and taken to the hospital and a few hours later picked up and driven to his home – the procedure was a success!

These are the sort of happenings that are not in our newsletter – they are an unwritten part of our mission!

The Chestnut Hill Enrichment Center is a 501(C)3 tax-exempt (non-profit) organization founded in 1978 by the Chestnut Hill Community Association to provide programs for older adults living in the community of northwest Philadelphia.

Please help our program to continue by making a donation using PayPal or sending a check to

You may also contribute to the CHCE through the United Way: Mt. Airy Community Services Corporation (our 501C3 fiscal sponsor) is United Way #9495.  Specify “Chestnut Hill Center for Enrichment”.  And if you are working, check with your employer to learn if the company has a “matching grant” program, which can as much as double an individual donation.
