Support care, advocacy, services and connections for seniors.
Risks for serious complications or death from COVID-19 increase with age. In Canada, we’ve lost far too many seniors already — our parents, friends, partners, grandparents, and neighbours. Nearly 97 per cent of COVID-19 deaths have been people over the age of 60 and deaths in long-term care in Canada are double those of other countries. Thankfully, non-profit care homes across the country have provided significantly safer environments for residents than for-profit homes.
The risk to older people is not just death, but isolation, depression, and lost time with loved ones. As COVID-19 drags into a new year, the charities across Canada providing critical services and care to seniors need your support.
Your gift can help ensure Canadian seniors are well cared for and not alone during this time. The charities in this fund provide high-quality long-term care, meal-delivery services, physical and mental health services, virtual recreation programs, affordable housing, companionship and networking, education, personal support, advocacy, and more.
Your donation will be pooled with gifts of others to help achieve wide-reaching effects and make a real impact. Donate today and help those in need. Plus, get an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits!

What makes up the COVID-19 Seniors Care Fund?
The COVID-19 Seniors Care Fund includes more than 300 registered charities whose work is primarily focused on supporting seniors in Canada.
The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account.
To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity.
