Foundation Funded Projects

We're doing great things

Since its beginnings in 1992, Saint Luke’s Place Foundation has provided invaluable support for the care and services provided by Saint Luke’s Place to its residents and tenants. 

The strength of the Foundation come from its many loyal and compassionate donors.  Private individuals, members of the Saint Luke’s Place community, family members, Saint Luke’s Place Auxiliary, the Royal Canadian Legions, corporate sponsors, and our many other friends in the local community help to support the excellent work done by Saint Luke’s Place through philanthropic gifts to Saint Luke’s Place Foundation.   Over the years, the Foundation’s fundraising efforts have included:

  • Point of Care computerized charting system to ensure timely and accurate recording of resident care
