Welcome to Buckham West

Buckham West is a non-profit organization which provides a variety of programs and services for adults 50 and over living in the Faribault area. It is our mission to promote the physical, emotional, intellectual, economic and social well being of older adults and encourage their participation in all aspects of community life in Faribault and the surrounding area.

We encourage you to visit our center in person or call us for additional information on the work that we do.

Mona Kaiser
Executive Director


Anyone age 50 or older is welcome to join Buckham West.

Existing Members

As a nonprofit, Buckham West understands and truly values that it’s nothing without its members. And it’s for that reason that the Board of Directors at its September, 2020 meeting decided to extend all existing memberships through 2021 at no cost. It was the right – and only – thing to do. It is our belief that you have not received a year’s worth of benefit from our organization in 2020 and want you to bear with us as we look forward to 2021

New Members

Dues for new members in 2021 are $40/person.

To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent – that is to triumph over old age.
