The Better Living Charitable Foundation focuses solely on providing support to the programs and services offered by Better Living Health and Community Services and Better Living at Thompson House. In order for Better Living Health and Community Services to provide the array of programs and services to individuals and families in the Don Mills and surrounding community, and to maintain the high quality of service that we provide, we rely on the generous support of individuals and corporations in our community.
In Ontario, it is projected that by the year 2021, our province will be home to close to three million seniors. This is a substantial increase from 1.45 million seniors in 1998. At this rate, there is a critical need for the Better Living Charitable Foundation to invest into the kinds of strategies and approaches needed to serve this imminent boom in the senior population and to improve the quality of lives of our seniors in a number of practical and beneficial ways.
Your donations assist Better Living in providing high-quality programs and services for members, clients and residents. Past support has helped fund the following areas of Better Living Health and Community Services:
- Pastoral Care Services
- Accessibility devices

Your donations are used directly for client services and every dollar that we raise goes directly to the programs and services that Better Living Health and Community Services provide.

The Better Living Charitable Foundation relies on the generosity of our community in order to provide the programs and services for our Seniors. Hike for Seniors and the Better Living Golf Classic are our two signature events but please contact us directly if you have ideas to help raise much needed critical funds. The Charitable Foundation works closely with dedicated volunteers, generous sponsors, supporters and donors to ensure the best possible success in the most responsible and accountable manner.
Better Living Golf Classic
The annual Fall golf classic tournament has a noon tee-off to get our golfers home early. Before warming up that sweet golfer’s swing on the driving range, golfers enjoy a wonderful brunch and refreshing commemorative beverage. While playing on the beautiful greens and friendly fairway, golfers will be sure to like the “party-in-a-cart” – cold beverages and tasty treats. The tournament closes with a courtesy beverage at the “19th Hole Mix & Mingle” followed by a delicious plated dinner, tournament and hole-in-one prizes, and brief program hosted by a CTV News personality.
