Camp Trillium

     Every year over 400 children in Ontario are diagnosed with cancer. Going to camp can seem like a remote possibility for children living with cancer. Camp Trillium was established in 1984 with this purpose in mind: to provide a camp environment for children affected by cancer and their families where they can relax and enjoy life again.

Educational Foundation (3 Different Scholarships Available)

     The Educational Foundation of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows began its operation on September 20, 1927. The purpose of the Foundation is to operate a revolving loan fund for students dependent in part, or wholly, on their own efforts for an education. It is supported by donations to a trust fund and no part of the trust fund can be used for operating expenses. (for more information on this program … click here)

IOOF Seniors Home

It was the very best design when it was opened in 1984. Since the rebuilt Home opened almost 20 years ago, the type of care has changed dramatically. Once, residents usually walked in the door. Now, most arrive by ambulance or in wheelchairs. The average age of residents is 89. Most are women. (for more information on this program … click here)
