Donating at Tabor Village
Providing Lasting Benefits
Benefiting the residents of Tabor Village
In partnership with the Abbotsford Foundation, the Society may accept a legacy donation that respects your wishes and desires to give back to Tabor Home in the years ahead. Because it is a legacy only the interest is used. Therefore, it will continue to benefit the residents of Tabor Home forever. You can decide to contribute to a special project of your choice or leave it to the discretion of the Board of the Tabor Home Society to use the funds for important resident services.
Please call our Executive Director to discuss how you may participate.
"My God in turn will supply your needs fully, in a way worthy of his magnificent riches in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:19
