Our goal is to provide a warm, human caring home for everyone who lives at Porteous Lodge and Stensrud Lodge. While medical care and basic support are important, they do not combat feelings of loneliness, helplessness and boredom.
At Jubilee Residences we want to provide a nurturing atmosphere so we must raise money to cover costs for things not funded by the government.
Your contributions allow the Jubilee Residences Foundation to enhance the atmosphere in our homes. Provincial government funding does not cover the cost of most equipment, furnishings or enhancements to the living environment. In fact, government funding has been cut back over the past number of years and barely covers basic services.

Where does the money go?
There are always more needs to be met than what our foundation is able to fund—most needs have a direct impact on our residents’ quality of life. Every donation, whatever size, helps enrich the lives of the older adults who live in our lodges.
Funds raised help to replace broken or out-of-date equipment and furnishings, as well as redevelop and upgrade space based on what will have the most impact on the quality of life for residents.
Donations can be directed for use to where there is the greatest need or to specific projects or lodges. Funding for all projects is based on recommendations made by the Quality of Life Committee of the Jubilee Residences Board and approved by the Jubilee Residences Foundation Board.
Ways to Donate
There are many ways in which you can invest in the Jubilee Residences Foundation's efforts and make a difference in the day-to-day lives of current residents as well as future residents. Each gift is as valuable as the next because it comes from those who care about our residents, about Porteous Lodge and Stensrud Lodge and the work we do. We would like you to know that the Jubilee Residences Foundation has a priority need for unrestricted gifts—this means that you allow Jubilee Residences to use your gift to help move one of its priority projects forward.
