Thank You for Changing Lives

Generous donors to Westminster Canterbury Foundation change lives at Westminster Canterbury Richmond every day.

Thanks to generous donors, the FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM provides anonymous life care support for seniors-in-need – housing, meals, medical expenses and access to all the vital living opportunities found here at Westminster Canterbury. In 2017, 113 residents benefited from the Fellowship Program. Because of your donations they are assured the best possible care, in an excellent community where the programs and experiences keep them vibrant. We, like the recipients and their families, cannot thank you enough for your generosity.

Donors who SHARE THEIR PASSION come to the Foundation with a deep conviction about what living the best life possible means. Through their support, they share their passion with others and even more get caught up in the contagiousness of giving. These donors make exciting things happen like providing $38,596 in need-based scholarship for the Child Development Center, high-quality performing arts events with a total attendance of more than 20,000 and more than 70 monthly therapy and fitness opportunities for residents in the Mary Morton Parsons Health Center.

Our employees are the drivers of innovation. They bring their best ideas for needed updates, changes and improvements, and our generous donors make it possible for some of those dreams to become a reality by supporting those Areas of Greatest Need. In 2017, these donors created opportunity for innovation by expanding our wellness offerings, transitioning to a highly successful new curriculum in the Child Development Center and supporting staff education through the Professional School of Learning.

Generous donors make so much possible. They make dreams become reality through their inspiring support. We celebrate them and join them in their passion for providing the best life possible for our residents.
