If you are celebrating a special event or milestone, consider asking your guests to make donations to VLG in lieu of gifts or you can give a donation in lieu of guest favors. We can prepare a card for each guest which includes a personalized note. Contact the Charity Office for more information.
In Honour/In Memory
Celebrate the life of a loved one or make a thoughtful gift in their name. It is a special way to show your thoughtfulness in the memory of someone you cared for, or honour someone special. You may also consider honouring a staff member that has made a difference in your loved one’s life. A card will be sent in acknowledgement of your gift which you can customize with a special message.

Gifts of Stock
VLG appreciatively accepts the donation of stocks. It is easy to transfer your shares directly to VLG from your brokerage account. VLG sells the shares immediately after receiving them and a receipt will be issued for the full market value of the shares on the day of the transfer. Your broker will need to fill out the appropriate Gift of Securities form and send it to VLG so we have the appropriate information to process the transaction and issue the receipt. Please contact the Charity Office for more information.
Workplace Matching Gift Programs or Employee Directed Giving Programs
Many companies offer matching Gift Programs or employee directed giving programs. Please check if the company you work for offers a program that could double your donation to VLG or help us with a grant to fund one of the many projects that will enhance the lives of those who call VLG home.
It is always a privilege to receive a Legacy Gift as it provides us with a great source of encouragement and continued pride in our work. A thoughtful, planned gift shows your commitment to our work and honours the residents who have made VLG their home. These gifts are precious and we would be honoured to receive a gift through your will or estate to reinvest in our home and programs.
The residence is always in need of items for our recreation program and other various things throughout the home. If you are interested in donating in-kind, Click here to view our current residential list of needs.
The Oak Leaf Legacy Wall
A Legacy Leaf is a thoughtful and permanent symbol which lovingly commemorates a life event. Whether it is a birthday, in memory, or to honour someone who has touched your life, a Legacy Leaf will provide a way to show your appreciation and contribute to a better quality of life for those at VLG.
The Oak Leaf Legacy Wall is a colourful mosaic of Legacy Leaves prominently displayed on the main floor of our residence. Each Leaf is elegantly etched with the recipient’s name and can be personalized with a few words.
Legacy Leaf recipients will receive:
- replica of the Legacy Leaf with stand.
- VLG card with a special note acknowledging your generous gift.
- A picture of the Legacy Leaf will appear on VLG’s virtual Oak Leaf Legacy Wall on the VLG website
