The Grace Village Advancement (Capital) Fund

The Vision

Aging infrastructure and extensive building code changes effective in 2018 required the Board of Directors of the Massawippi Retirement Communities in 2014 to develop a new facility strategy and business plan.

With significant input from our Eastern Townships community, a combined management and volunteer project team developed a sweeping Vision for Renewal that resulted in a new state-of-the-art 120 room Care Pavilion offering an expanded continuum of care model for our seniors, celebrated with a grand opening in July 2017!

Grace Village Today

The move in July 2017 and the transition of our residents from the old buildings to the new Grace Village Care Pavilion was a massive undertaking.  However the accommodations, environment and opportunities for service for our residents (now at full capacity of 120), staff (120 full and part time) and volunteers (100+), have met and surpassed expectations. 

Relaxing in the beautiful & secure interior courtyard gardens, enjoying a residence-wide special event or weekly bingo and carpet bowling with family and friends in the Grand Hall, or even popping by our Bistro for a coffee, a muffin and a chat - everyone has benefited from and enjoyed the revitalized community the new Grace Village has enabled.

Grace Village - Tomorrow!

The success of Phase 1 - the new Grace Village Care Pavilion - and the generosity of our donors in making it possible through the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation Capital Campaign has been nothing short of a miracle.

However there is still a substantial financial requirement for 2018 and through 2020! 

As a private not-for-profit organization with no government funding, our Grace Village Advancement Fund (Capital Campaign) still has several million dollars to raise to meet financial commitments over the next two years. In order to meet our final 2018 Phase 1 commitment and fund the next phases we need support from a broader base of Townshippers and former Townshippers (do we ever really become former Townshippers?!) who are concerned for the welfare of the seniors who helped build our communities.

Looking ahead, as donation funding allows, plans and permits are in place for the next 2 phases shown in this rendition image -  11 additional semi-detached Independent Living bungalows (22 living units) and a 43-unit apartment complex for Independent Living where closer access to medical and living support from the current main Care Pavilion (figure 8 building at the left) is needed.

Campaign FAQ


The original Capital Campaign financial objective was $14,000,000 in donations and pledges spread over 5 years. There is still a need for approximately $4 million in donations and pledges by 2020 to meet this goal.


Yes. Donors may spread their contribution to the remaining Phase 1 requirements over 2 years and to Phase 2 expansion over up to 5 years, allowing Grace Village and the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation to meet the obligations of both current and future development and renewal projects.



The Grace Village & Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation’s boards of directors, committee members and staff have all contributed, and we are seeking the support of friends, local businesses, private foundations, families as well as any Townshipper who wants to support the seniors who built the Townships that we grew up in.
