The Mission 2020 Capital Campaign for Westminster Canterbury-Lynchburg is complete and we finished strong!
More than 340 people made charitable gifts to this two-year initiative which raised over $2.35 million toward the costs required to renovate our dining and wellness areas, and construct the new Drinkard Healthcare Center. We are very grateful for all the donors who have made gifts to this important effort.
This effort was successful through the leadership of the Westminster Canterbury Foundation Board members and others who gave their time and energy to help us tell the story of why this campaign was important, and the impact it would have on resident lives. Thank You!
Mission 2020 also helped bring a new concept in healthcare services to life through the design of the Drinkard Center and Westminster Canterbury’s commitment to a Person Directed Living philosophy of care. The electricity in the air was palpable when we dedicated the building on June 27, 2019. Everyone wanted to see the finished structure. It’s one thing to watch the walls go up from your window. It’s another experience entirely to enter those walls and know that you helped make it possible.
The successful conclusion of the Mission 2020 project goes beyond dollars and cents. This project is something we can all be proud of as a community.
Our Foundation will continue its work to develop philanthropic opportunities that benefit our residents, employees and programs.
