The Giving Time of Year

The holiday season is a wonderful time for taking stock of our blessings. As we celebrate with family, spend time with friends, shop for the perfect gift or prepare special holiday treats, we can reflect on all the people and things we are thankful for.

It is especially during this giving time of the year that Westminster Canterbury Foundation is particularly grateful for the inspiring generosity of so many. You ensure the best life possible for our residents and employees, along with everyone associated with our organization. Since our very beginnings, we have provided support for seniors-in-need through our Fellowship Program, which provides security, dignity and peace of mind to more than 110 of your deserving neighbors. Your gifts to the Fellowship program provide housing, meals, comprehensive medical care and a culturally rich and fulfilling environment for neighbors-in-need.

A recipient of Fellowship assistance shared these thoughts about your inspiring generosity:

“Westminster Canterbury Foundation’s Fellowship Program means everything to me. Before moving to Westminster Canterbury Richmond, I spent decades caring for my wife. She had multiple chronic illnesses. Thankfully, we had many wonderful years together. By the time she passed away, we were left with very little. Our pastor encouraged us to apply to the Fellowship Program. Because of generous donors like you, I now call Westminster Canterbury home.  Imagine for a moment what living here means to me.  I now have a safe and caring place to live. I receive all of my meals. My medical needs are met through excellent life care.  For the first time in years, I have security and peace of mind. The Fellowship Program is a gift from God! Being a part of this program has proven hours of love and security beyond measure. I am so grateful!”

We greatly appreciate and need your generosity this season. We invite you to support Westminster Canterbury Foundation’s Fellowship Program at or call (804) 264-6204 for more information. Thank you!
