You told us in our Vital Signs outreach that Good Health and Well-Being is our number one priority and now you can help us do something about it!
In our region of the world, we are fortunate to live in a country whose provinces deliver a well-developed healthcare system plus a wide array of agencies that address and promote well-being. Despite our best efforts, gaps and needs persist. We have residents who find it difficult to get listed with a family physician, we face persistent challenges in trying to reduce the incidence of non-communicable diseases – cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, and we have community members who face mental health and addiction issues. We also have a population that is aging. By 2041 it is possible that 34 of every 100 residents of the region of Lennox and Addington will be over the age of 65.
The Community Foundation for Lennox & Addington has created this permanent endowment fund in order to create sustainable funding in perpetuity for charitable groups that promote good health and well-being in the region of Lennox and Addington.
Please help us to improve health & well-being today, tomorrow and forever. In fact when you donate this fund, you will be providing funding to good health & well-being projects in our community every year in perpetuity.
The Good Health & Well-Being 180° Fund Campaign is one of our three 180° Campaigns in which we aim to reverse troubling trends in: the Environment, Poverty, and Health and Well-Being. We are asking supporters of our our 180° Campaigns to donate $180.00, on a timetable that fits their passion and budget. Pledges through this form can be made one-time or monthly. Of course donations of any size are welcome and meaningful because when you give a little, the community gains a lot!
The Community Foundation for Lennox & Addington would like to thank and acknowledge Shannon McCaffrey and Team McCaffrey of McCaffrey Realty Inc. for providing the seed money donation to set this fund in motion.
