Donations & Bequests

Donations and bequests can be made to the Eyre Peninsula Old Folks Home. The Eyre Peninsula Old Folks Home is a non profit organisation and therefore relies heavily on public support through donations and bequests to help maintain the high standard of care for which we are known.

How can you make a difference?

Generous donations and bequests in the past have helped finance significant developments at the facility including Bishop Lodge (our 23 bed unit specifically designed to cater for cognitively challenged residents) and have therefore allowed us to produce an even greater number of services for the community.

You can make a donation in lieu of flowers. This type of donation is an ongoing tribute to the memory of your loved one and have made significant impacts on the lives of residents over many years.

If you wish to make a gift in this way, please call Reception on (08) 8682 1868.
