04 Feb Two boards aid in the operation of the Louis Brier
There are two boards that aid in the operation of the Louis Brier Home and Hospital. The Louis Brier Home and Hospital Board is responsible for the day to day operation of the home. The Louis Brier Jewish Aged Foundation Board is tasked with raising funds to augment the programs provided to both Louis Brier and the Weinberg Residence.
Donations to the Foundation are used to increase the level of care above and beyond standards set by Coastal Health. We are responsible for funding programs that include music therapy, chaplaincy, supporting the in-house synagogue, Kashrut and really everything that makes the Louis Brier a Jewish home.
The Foundation runs a major fundraising campaign every two years. We communicate our needs to our community of donors and find the sponsorship and funding that make the Louis Brier a much sought-after home away from home.
The Foundation Board members are active community leaders and are always looking for new people and ideas to help in our mission to raise funds in an increasingly competitive environment.
We recognize the importance and real need for a Jewish home for the aged. Donations are received through Wills and Bequests, Life Insurance, Annuities, Endowments, Stocks, Bonds and of course regular cash donations.
Most community members have had a loved one who has lived at the Louis Brier. We stress the fact that the wonderful care that our residents receive cannot come without financial support. We urge all those present and past whose loved ones have experienced our excellent care and programing, and who have directly benefitted from the generosity of those who came before them, to make the Louis Brier Jewish Aged Foundation a priority in their charitable donations.
