GIVE65 is a program of Home Instead Senior Care Foundation of Canada.
The aging landscape in Canada is changing dramatically. According to StatsCanada, the percentage of seniors (16.9 per cent) now exceeds the share of children (16.6 per cent). This pattern indicates that in the year 2061, there could be 12 million seniors living in Canada and only 8 million children. Furthermore, one in nine seniors is living in poverty and every day 1,000 people are turning 65 years old in Canada. As seniors are leaving the work force, drawing a pension and using more health care, the smaller workforce is unable to contribute enough to the income tax to increase these services for the growing population. This is where the philanthropic sector has the opportunity to step up and help seniors age with dignity and respect. There is a tremendous need to increase the capacity of charitable programs and services that create hope for seniors.
In 2017, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation of Canada was approved by the Canadian Revenue Association and we are proud to present GIVE65, in collaboration with generous sponsors sharing our mission, to help seniors in need.
Since its founding in 2003, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation has been helping less fortunate and vulnerable aging adults. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $3 million to charitable organizations serving seniors in the United States and Canada. The mission of the Foundation is to enhance the lives of aging adults and those who care for them.
Paul and I started the Foundation to help those seniors who could not afford the services of the Home Instead Senior Care network. Over the years, we have had the great honor to learn about many nonprofit programs throughout North America that are providing services essential to quality of life. The need is great. I think GIVE65 is a rallying cry for all of us - the public and private sector - to come together and create hope for our seniors in need."
