As a non-profit organization, Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg relies on its Foundation to raise funds to support its residents and programs. Our volunteer Board of Directors seeks to cultivate a culture of philanthropy and stewardship that empowers donors to make transformative gifts that represent their passions to support our mission.
The Westminster Canterbury of Lynchburg Foundation is a 509(a)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Gifts made by people like you come to us by check, credit card, stock transfer, IRA designation, or through estate plans. All contributions make a difference to our residents and the services and programs we provide.
Fellowship Endowment Fund
Our Fellowship Endowment Fund is the core focus of the Foundation’s activities. Donations to Fellowship provide confidential, monthly assistance to residents who may find themselves in financial difficulty through no fault of their own. Thanks to the generosity of friends and neighbors, our residents are secure in the knowledge that they will always be able to live on our campus.
This important safety net is designed to preserve the dignity of the resident by affording them a lifestyle in keeping with the essence of the Westminster community. The identity of residents who receive Fellowship support is strictly confidential.
Your gift to the Fellowship Fund will help us keep our promise of support and provide peace of mind for current and future residents.
