Accomplishments Made Possible by Donors!
Donors accomplish amazing things at Westminster Canterbury Richmond!
In 2016, gifts to Westminster Canterbury Foundation totaled more than $3 million dollars. Donors support a wide variety of programming and needs, but what they truly accomplish is ensuring the best life possible to our residents.
Donors to Westminster Canterbury Foundation for the Fellowship Program provide life care for seniors-in-need – housing, meals, medical expenses and vital living. They also provide peace of mind for all residents and their family members by assuring that no Westminster Canterbury resident will be asked to leave due to an inability to pay through no fault of their own. In 2016, 109 residents received Fellowship support.
Donors also provided generous support for the programs that they are passionate about – Performing Arts, Memory Support, Healthcare Excellence, the Child Development Center, Fitness, and many others. Their gifts to Westminster Canterbury Foundation in support of these areas provide for live, high-quality arts and educational performances, innovative and holistic approaches to care for those experiencing dementia, advanced training for nursing staff not common in the long-term care setting and many, many more accomplishments.
Many donors choose to give undesignated gifts to Westminster Canterbury Foundation, putting their trust and faith in our committed staff to direct their generosity to the area of greatest need. These inspiring donors provide the resources to make Innovation Grants to various departments at Westminster Canterbury. These funds are allowing us to implement a new comprehensive, multidisciplinary curriculum for our Child Development Center; increase recreational, wellness and fitness opportunities for all residents, especially those in the Mary Morton Parsons Health Center and assisted living; develop a printed art catalogue of our permanent art collection for all residents and guests to enjoy and much more.
