Our endowment funds
Actionmarguerite encourages you to give to our numerous projects, programs and initiatives at any of our long-term care facilities. Make a lasting impact by opting to dedicate your gift to any of our designated funds.
Actionmarguerite Foundation’s General Fund accepts donations in support of the organization’s overall mission as well as donations in memory of loved ones (in memoriam). Proceeds specifically enhance the quality of life of residents at our St. Vital and St. Boniface sites, allocating resources to the development of priority projects.
The Ghislaine-Lacerte Fund finances activities and programming in french at Actionmarguerite St. Vital. Proceeds help address the ever growing need to engage and entertain residents in their first language and culture which is critical to their well-being.
The Compassion Fund was created by the Ursuline Sisters of Tildonk in order to support residents living on fixed income and to offer compassion-focused training to staff. True to its core values, the fund promotes initiatives that inspire caring and empathy within the entire Actionmarguerite community.
The Enhanced Dementia Learning Fund benefits from proceeds generated by the annual First General Services golf tournament as well as other donations. Funds raised provide the means to offer specialized educational programs to staff and caregivers who support long-term care residents with special needs due to dementia.
Friends of St. Joseph’s Residence
The Spiritual Care Fund was established by the Sisters of St. Benedictine and other donors over many years. The fund promotes the pastoral programs offered at Actionmarguerite St. Joseph. Designed to reach out to residents’ spiritual needs, the fund facilitates the delivery of varied programming while recognizing each individuals’ needs, faith and spiritual traditions.
The Friends of St. Joseph’s Residence General Fund supports projects that improve the standard of living of residents. Focusing on the elderly and their well-being, the fund has helped finance a multitude of enhancements while fulfilling the organization’s mission as a provider of care and services.
Please note that for safety reasons, we cannot accept donations of used furniture, clothing and equipment.
