GEF Seniors Housing is a Registered Charity
GEF Seniors Housing is a Registered Charity with the Canada Revenue Agency, and we gladly welcome financial donations.
Every day, GEF Seniors Housing focuses on providing quality, accessible and affordable housing and services for close to 4,000 low-to-moderate income seniors in Edmonton.
The need for safe, affordable and friendly housing and services for seniors in our city continues to grow.
At GEF, our focus is on much more than basic shelter: we are also firmly committed to positively contribute to the quality of life of each senior who makes a GEF community their home.
We have affirmed this commitment in our Quality of Life Philosophy:
“To provide seniors with accessible, affordable, and safe housing in comfortable and supportive environments that promote opportunities for them to successfully age in place.”
But we can’t do it alone. We need your help.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, every year we have raised an average of more than $100,000*
With these donations, we can improve our seniors’ quality of life, including activities and wellness and community services.
When you donate to GEF Seniors Housing, you can choose between one of two funds:
Quality of Life Fund:
- Supports expansion of activities and wellness programming.
- Helps connect GEF seniors with supports and services in their building or in the broader community.
Building for Life Fund:
- Supports new communities, like our current Lauderdale Terrace redevelopment project.
*GEF Seniors Housing is hoping to raise an estimated $35,000 this year from its virtual Building for Life donation efforts. There will be no additional cost to GEF to raise this. For more information, please contact:

Help us build for the future
The number of seniors in Alberta continues to grow and, in the next 15 years, that number will be nearly one million.
There is a significant future need for affordable seniors’ housing, and it is for this reason that GEF Seniors Housing started the Building for Life Fund. All contributions to this Fund go directly to finance new GEF capital building projects in Edmonton.
In just the past five years, the Fund has contributed to two major building projects: Sakaw Terrace in southeast Edmonton’s Mill Woods community in 2018 and Ottewell Terrace, in southeast Edmonton’s Ottewell community in 2016.
Your contributions to this Fund will help us build more affordable seniors housing in Edmonton.View Video
