Donations from people like you directly improve the wellbeing and happiness of the people we are privileged to care for. Your donations help us provide enhanced programs and services, so all who come through our doors can live as fully as possible, with joy and purpose.
Why give to Broadmead Care?
Our goal is to create a homelike environment for people and their families, with experiences and activities that honour their life history, support their strengths and challenges, and maintain their dignity. Your donations help us purchase equipment and fund programs for residents and clients that help them enjoy a sense of belonging, respect, and acceptance, and that helps provide opportunities for all to live life as fully as possible.
How to Donate
You can direct your donation to any of our Care Homes – Beckley Farm Lodge, Harriet House, Nigel House, Rest Haven Lodge, Veterans Health Centre, or Veterans Memorial Lodge – and please let us know if you would like it allocated to a specific program or fundraising campaign, such as renovations, gym equipment, or staff education, or for our Feels Like Home or Nigel House campaigns. Whichever way you choose to help, your gift will be greatly appreciated and recognized according to your wishes.
Thank you. Your generosity allows us to do so much more, and we are deeply grateful for your contribution.

Memorial Tribute Gifts
Memorial and tribute donations are a way to thank staff for the care provided to loved ones. Your donation helps purchase equipment or funds renovations that enhance the lives of those who live with us, and also make work easier for our staff. They also can be directed to any of our programs, such as Music and Memories, creative arts, or spiritual care. At your request, we will notify the next-of-kin that you have remembered their loved one – your donation amount is not shared. With the permission of the next-of-kin, the name of the person in whose memory you have made your donation will be recorded in the memorial section of our Donor Recognition Book located in the main lobby at Veterans Memorial Lodge.
Gifts of Stock & Securities
Donating gifts of appreciated publicly listed securities such as stocks, bonds, or mutual fund units is a simple and tax-effective way of giving. The capital gains on appreciated securities are exempt from tax when securities are donated ‘as is’ to Broadmead Care. (If you sell appreciated securities, 50 percent of the capital gain is taxable.) Additionally, you get a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities at the closing price on the day they are received into Broadmead Care’s brokerage account.
Donating stock is easy. Simply instruct your broker to transfer the shares ‘as is’ directly to the Broadmead Care brokerage account. This can be done as an electronic transfer or in the form of a share certificate in your name delivered to Broadmead Care. We will work with your advisor to ensure the transfer goes well and will deliver your tax receipt to you.

Grateful Family Program
Families and residents often ask us how they can say ‘thank you’ for the outstanding compassion and care provided at Broadmead Care. Some express their appreciation with a hug, handshake or a note, but feel they want to do something more.
The Grateful Family Program is a meaningful way for you to show thanks through a gift, to honour a particular staff member, volunteer, or department as a whole who made a difference for you, and to celebrate the care received.
