Your support is vital to helping LutherCare Communities continue to provide excellence in care, shelter and support for current and future generations. In addition to directly helping our residents and clients, you will receive a charitable receipt that will help to reduce your taxes.
Our fundraising is carried out by LutherCare Foundation, an independent organization formed for the sole purpose of raising funds and encouraging support for LutherCare Communities. The charitable registration number for LutherCare Foundation is 89074 5995 RR0001.
The Luther Special Care Home (LSCH) Renewal Campaign is currently raising funds to support renovations to the 1st and 2nd floor units of LSCH. The centerpiece of the renovations will be the creation of open, home-like kitchens that will serve as “the heart of the home.” Renovations of the 2nd floor kitchen, dining room and lounge are now complete. Similar work will proceed on the 1st floor once sufficient funds have been raised. Click here for the Campaign Brochure.
Please see the Needs List for other needed items within the various departments of LutherCare Communities.
Ways to Give
This printable donation form gives you the option of donating by cheque, Visa or MasterCard. Your donation may be directed to a special cause within LutherCare Communities. It also may be given in memory of a person who has passed away or in honor of a living person.
Our online donations are handled by a registered charity named CanadaHelps. If you choose to give your donation this way, you will receive your charitable donation from CanadaHelps rather than from LutherCare Foundation. CanadaHelps will forward your donation to us, less a processing fee that is approximately the same as the fee we pay on our own credit card transactions.
The Memory Tree program gives you the opportunity to dedicate a leaf on one of the memory trees that have been placed in LutherCare’s various locations. Each leaf recognizes a donation of at least $100.
