Your Giving Helps

Your Giving is an important part of ensuring that Elim continues to provide quality living options to our Seniors for future generations.

 

2 Corinthians 8:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

The Collection for the Lord’s People

And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.

ONE-TIME GIFTS

Your one-time gift to Elim Society is welcomed and appreciated. Any donation will make a difference in the lives of our residents.

MONTHLY

For only a few dollars per day, you can make an impact. Monthly donations are a convenient way to provide regular support to seniors living in our communities.

INVEST in our Communities

We value our investor program as a large percentage of Elim’s development has been funded through private investments.Typically, our investments carry a 3 or 5-year term and interest is paid on an annual basis.

WE CURRENTLY OFFER:
Promissory Notes at very competitive rates.

Feel free to call to discuss available options that might better complement your particular financial situation. IF you are interested in investments options, please contact Mary Hendricks at 403-942-2672 or email admin@elimlethbridge.org

 

MEMORIAL/HONOUR

Donations can be made in memory of loved ones who have passed away or in honour of the achievements of those still with us. Celebrate the life of someone who has personally touched you and ensure their legacy has a positive impact on the lives of others.

 

EVENTS

Proceeds from fundraising events can be used to directly support our communities of care. There are many types of events you can host including garage sales, walk-a-thons, barbecues, car washes and more. Corporate fundraisers or seasonal celebrations are also great ways to create support for our mission. We are happy to brainstorm ideas that help you to raise funds and awareness for Elim Lethbridge.

LEGACY & ESTATE PLANNING

Making a planned gift in your will is a meaningful way to leave a legacy to your own life and show support for what you cared about during your lifetime. Charitable bequests help us ensure optimal care for future generations.

It is Elim’s hope to receive future estate gifts in order to secure the future financial viability of the Elim Society.

Memorial Landmarks – These are currently available in the form of common areas memorials. Elim is open to discussions regarding more significant gifts to support larger projects such as gardens, public areas and equipment and buildings.

DONATING SECURITIES

Do you own securities or mutual funds that have increased in value since you bought them? Then making a direct donation of those shares is the more tax-efficient way to support your favourite charities.

A direct donation of your securities or mutual fund shares adds up to a larger donation to the charities you support. That’s really good news for them. It’s also good news for you because a larger donation means a larger charitable tax receipt and that makes a difference on your own tax return at the end of the year.
