Become a Friend of St. Andrew’s Seniors
Thanks to generous donors, we provide many seniors each year with exceptional support and care – whether they live at the St-Andrew Residential Centre or in their own homes. The St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Homes Foundation is a registered charitable organization, and 100% of our revenue comes from the generosity of individuals like yourself. Donors provide the crucial support that helps us respond to the growing needs of our elderly.
Please help us continue our mission of providing quality care and services to our senior population by becoming a Friend of St. Andrew’s Seniors today. You help our elderly go beyond having their basic needs met, to helping them improve their daily living and enriching their quality of life. Your contribution is a valuable investment in improving the lives of Anglophone seniors in our community and our city. Together, our presence helps them enjoy healthier, safer, and more productive lives.

Will: Making a small change in your will can make a big change in the life of a local senior. After looking after your family and friends, you may wish to leave a gift to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Homes Foundation. If you want to leave a gift, but have already prepared your will, there are two simple ways to donate:
Make a New Will – This is the simplest way. You can stipulate a fixed number of dollars or a percentage (Example: $5,000 or 5%). Once a new will is prepared, any wills written previously are void. It is best to do this with a professional advisor, such as a notary that you trust.
Amend Your Existing Will – Through a codicil, you can change a will that is already made. We again advise that you work with a trusted legal expert to amend any existing will.
Insurance Policy: By taking out a small insurance policy and making St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Homes Foundation the beneficiary, you can donate through your estate without affecting the amount left for friends and family. Talk to a trusted insurance advisor to find out more.
Matching “In Memoriam”: Matching “In Memoriam” donations received from friends and family following your death can be a thoughtful way to show how much you support a specific charity. You can ask that in lieu of flowers, donations are made to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Homes Foundation. (Example: $1000 is collected and your estate matches that with a $1000 donation, for a generous $2000 total donation.)
