A program of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation of Canada

About GIVE65

GIVE65, a program of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation of Canada, is the first and only crowd-fundraising platform exclusively devoted to helping registered charities raise money online for programs and services that create hope for seniors.

A Catalyst for Social Change

It can be challenging to raise funds for programs and services that help seniors in need. In the philanthropic world, seniors are often overlooked and registered charities are underfunded. At Home Instead Senior Care Foundation of Canada, we believe we can inspire greater charitable giving in support of seniors when we work together with charities who share this common mission. By working together, we can increase social awareness and the capacity of charitable organisations to care for the growing senior population - ultimately helping even more seniors in need.

The need is great. I think GIVE65 is a rallying cry for all of us - the public and private sectors - to come together and create hope for our seniors in need.

-Lori Hogan, Co-founder of Home Instead Senior Care
