The 'Old Ladies Home', established in 1919, was the residence of many Saint John women. When it closed its doors in 1977, an application was made to the courts on behalf of the Home to transfer all remaining assets to The Community Foundation and create an endowment fund. The Old Ladies Home Fund became the first Fund placed under the trusteeship of the Foundation. The stated purpose of the Fund is to support Seniors throughout Greater Saint John.

 In 2019, we are holding a special granting cycle… Funding will range from $5,000 to $30,000 per project.
