Your gift improves residents' lives.
When you donate to Silvera, you give seniors the opportunity to live their best lives. With your support, we can ensure those who are most vulnerable have safe housing and services. Your kindness counts – now, more than ever.
Becoming a Friend of Silvera means you are a monthly donor. You choose where your gift goes. All donations help Silvera offer meaningful experiences and basic comforts to the 1,400 residents who choose to make their homes with us.

The Comfort Closets program is a simple and effective way to meet the unplanned, short-term needs of some residents.
Comfort Closets provide hygiene products (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.) and basic supplies (like laundry soap).

Consider an investment in our new Research Program. It’s designed to provide Silvera with evidence-based direction for resident programming. Ultimately, we want to improve residents’ and employees’ lives by moving this research into action.
We’re evaluating our programs to ensure they are the best they can be. We’re also partnering with numerous post-secondary institutions to investigate new and innovative ways to provide interesting opportunities for our residents.

The need for seniors’ housing and services continues to grow. Silvera is determined to ensure all older Calgarians have safe homes and needed services. We do this by advancing and then leveraging capital growth.
In 2022, we’ll open three additional communities. Each will feature rents geared to low and moderate incomes. One of these is another addition to Silvera’s Glamorgan Campus.
We are also making more efficient use of existing government-owned, Silvera-operated communities by leveraging capital.
We’re adapting swiftly to strengthen our financial position and continue to meet ever-growing demand for homes and services for older Calgarians. We are actively seeking donors and partners to support this capital growth.
When you give a legacy gift to Silvera, you provide residents – current and future ones – opportunities and a sense of home they may not otherwise have.
Planned gifts may be through a bequest, a life insurance policy or other planned giving options. A well-planned legacy gift can provide you or your estate with substantial tax savings and financial benefits.
Learn more about the program. We’d be happy to speak with you or your trusted advisors about how your legacy will ensure older Calgarians live their best lives with Silvera.
