Odd Fellows Home of California

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows has a long history of serving others. This commitment to service is at the heart of the Odd Fellows’ philosophy and is expressed by its organizational motto: “Friendship, Love, and Truth.” The Odd Fellows Home of California, a nonprofit corporation, is the owner of two incredible Life Plan communities in the Bay Area—The Meadows of Napa Valley and Saratoga Retirement Community. These communities further the Order’s mission to serve others (senior or elderly), and we are honored to serve our members in their later years.

Exclusive Benefits to Members

The Odd Fellows Home of California is proud to offer exclusive benefits to Odd Fellow and Rebekah members who choose to live in one of our beautiful Life Plan communities.

Financial Benefits

Any Odd Fellow or Rebekah who has been a member for 10 years or more will receive a 2% *monthly fee savings benefit for each year of membership, paid by the Odd Fellows Home Endowment Fund. For instance, a 30-year member would receive 60% off the monthly fee as shown in the example below:

30-Year Member Savings Benefit
Member Benefit (2% x # Years of Service) 2% x 30 = 60%

Monthly fee (varies by apartment)$3,900
Monthly fee savings benefit (60% x $3,900)-$2,340
Member-exclusive monthly fee$1,560
Annual savings$28,080

Qualifying member spouses—who have been in good standing for 10 years—will receive an additional 1% off the second-person monthly fee for every year of service. For example, a 30-year member spouse would receive 30% off the second-person fee as shown below:

30-Year Qualifying Spouse Savings Benefit
Member Benefit (1% x # Years of Service)

Second person fee (month to month)$1,007
Monthly fee savings benefit (30% x $1,007)-$302
Member-exclusive second-person fee$705
Annual savings$3,624

Another example: If a qualifying member has been in good standing for 20 years, and their member spouse has been in good standing for 10 years, then 50% of their monthly costs will be paid by the Endowment Fund (40% plus 10%).

Additionally, if a primary qualifying member and member spouse both have 50 years or more of service to the Order or have been a member for 50 years or more, they will receive 2% off the second-person fee for every year of service.

* Monthly fees are including but not limited to healthcare, meals, utilities, wellness programs, social activities, maintenance services, and much more.

The reflected annual savings are a representation only, and some restrictions may apply. To learn how these savings may be applied to your specific years of membership, please call: 408-753-9663

Additional Benefits

Member residents of either community will also receive items of assistance through programs provided by The Grand Lodge and Rebekah Assembly. For example, their “Adopt-a-Resident” program provides cards and gifts to commemorate member birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. For those members that wish to stay in their homes, the Home Board also offers an assistance program that will provide aid and is available to all members through an application process.
