We’re All In This Together.
Together we can make a difference.
The Westminster-Canterbury Foundation was created to ensure the fulfillment of our mission: “Bringing Joy to Life.” It is a mission that we take to our community with a variety of programs.
The programs include:
If you would like to direct your donation to the area of greatest need, this is the correct fund to select. The Opportunity Fund is an unrestricted fund that allows the Westminster-Canterbury Foundation to apply your donation where it can make the biggest impact today.Close
The Fellowship Fund:
Of all the Continuing Care Retirement Communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia, ours is one of only three to offer need-based financial support to residents at admission. Peace of mind is easier with lifelong financial security, especially for those who feel there’s a possibility they will outlive their assets through no fault of their own.Close
Employee Assistance Funds:
Our community is great because our employees are great. If a staff member experiences an unforeseen financial setback, or is striving to achieve advanced certification in their field, we offer whatever assistance we can. Still others may be seeking tuition assistance to help support the broader educational goals of their families. In such cases, the Foundation is committed to help to the extent possible, because our employees help us fulfill our mission every day.Close
Edge of Excellence Funds:
Gifts to the Edge of Excellence Funds provide support to programs and activities that preserve and enhance the preeminence of Westminster-Canterbury. Our Edge of Excellence Funds also help sustain the Library, Chapel, Tuttle Courtyard, Meditation Garden, Audio Books, and other amenities that enrich community life, building upon our sense of community and social engagement.
