  Cove Guest Home Foundation

The Cove Guest Home Foundation was formed in 1996, sparked by a $1,000,000 capital campaign for new equipment and seed money for an Assisted Living complex. The Foundation's mandate is to raise funds for new Cove projects, equipment and programs for seniors. The foundation does not provide funding for the day-to-day operations of the Cove.

Since the beginning, the Cove Foundation has established a number of exciting ways to assist the building fund.

Along with the capital campaign, there is the Annual Appeal and special events such as the Cove Annual Dinner & Gala and the Festival of Lights.

Festival of Lights 2017

Thank you, for contributing to the Cove Guest Home Foundation’s Festival of Lights 2017. The Memorial Book will be on display in the Cove lobby for the entire year. Take a glance through it next time you’re visiting. 

The Foundation's mandate is to raise funds for new Cove projects, equipment and programs for seniors. The foundation does not provide funding for the day-to-day operations of the Cove. This year profits from the event are funding a new sound and theatre system for the residents to enjoy.

Support made easy online through CanadaGives.org - Give NOW

In the years ahead, philanthropy will continue to play an indispensable role in helping to maintain the quality of our resident care services and programs. The financial climate for the Cove Guest Home has never been more challenging, and the need for private support never greater than it is today.

The Directors of the Cove Guest Home Foundation welcome the opportunity to keep our friends in the community informed about how planned charitable giving can benefit our long term care facility - today and for years to come.

Gifts received by the Foundation are used to:

fund the purchase of new and essential equipment
preserve core resident programs
assure necessary funds for future development

Your continued support will enable the Cove Guest Home to achieve its mission of providing high quality long term care to the citizens of Cape Breton.

You Can Help By:

Giving regularly to the Cove Guest Home Foundation (Pledge)
Arranging a bequest to the Foundation in your Will.
Gifting a Life Insurance policy or naming the Foundation as a beneficiary.

An official charitable receipt, suitable for income tax purposes will be issued for all gifts, as allowed by law.

If you would like more information about how your planned gift can benefit the residents of Cove Guest Home, please contact:
