What does it mean to be a senior?
And to live a life fulfilled?

At The Chartwell Foundation, we believe dreams last a lifetime and hope has no expiry date. We believe we are never too old to pursue our passions. To reach for goals. And to be an example of a life well-lived.


The Chartwell Foundation is on a mission to grant the wishes of Canadian seniors and to contribute to meaningful charities with a shared purpose of making people’s lives better.

SINCE 2015

We have helped make dreams come true for more than 130 seniors across Canada. Wishes have reconnected loved ones. Celebrated lifelong passions. And paid tribute to the past.


The impact of receiving a wish is profound. Improved quality of life. Enhanced physical and mental health. A renewed sense of purpose and achievement.
