300 for 300 Seniors Giving Challenge

We’re inviting you or seniors you know to join the 300 for 300 Seniors Giving Challenge in support of the Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa. By participating, you will be enhancing the lives of seniors living in Ottawa’s 13 not-for-profit long-term care homes. Long-term care homes in Ottawa have been deeply impacted by the pandemic, and this is your chance to help make a difference.

The Goal:

The Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa has set out to raise $90,000 in support of Ottawa’s not-for-profit long-term care homes with the 300 for 300 Seniors Giving Challenge. With your help – we can!

The Challenge:

The Federal Government will be making Covid-19 payments to seniors during the first week of July, 2020. We ask that you consider donating your $300 payment to the Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa so we can reach our goal of $90,000. If you cannot donate the full $300, please consider a smaller donation – any amount makes a huge difference! By donating your payment, our foundation will be able to supply Ottawa’s 13 not-for-profit long-term care homes with vital and much needed personal protective and sterilization equipment and other necessities.

The first 300 individuals to donate $300 will:

  • Be invited to an afternoon reception in their honour when social distancing requirements have been lifted in Ottawa.
  • Have their name listed on the Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa website (if they choose).
  • Receive a card of thanks for their generosity with details about how their donation was spent.
