Almost $3.8 million raised so far for new seniors’ care complex

Tabor Village in Abbotsford sets $11 million fundraising goal

Tabor Village seniors care complex in Abbotsford has announced that they have already received $3.8 million in personal commitments from donors as they launched the “Transforming Tabor Village Campaign” on Saturday night.

The campaign hopes to raise $11 million towards the construction of a new Tabor Village “Centre for Living” complex-care facility.

More than 300 invited guests attended the campaign celebration earlier this month..

Tabor board chair Vic Marten and CEO Dan Levitt were joined by Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun to mark the start of the campaign.

Braun spoke about the progressive and innovative mindset for seniors’ living that has been a hallmark of Tabor Village for almost 50 years at their Clearbrook Road location.

The evening also featured performances by the MEI student choir – led by Dean Wedel – and concert violinist Calvin Dyck.

“This was an outstanding launch to our campaign, and we are excited for the future of Tabor Village and the importance of keeping Christian care at the forefront of seniors’ care in our community,” said campaign coordinator Andrea Critchley.

The first major component of the Transforming Tabor Campaign is the construction of a new complex-care facility that will bring with it a new model of care for seniors suffering from dementia-related conditions.

It will replace the oldest care facility on the Tabor “campus of care” and also provide more care spaces for seniors.

Tabor Village is a non-profit society governed by 11 participating Mennonite Brethren churches in the Fraser Valley.
