    We greatly appreciate donations and philanthropic gifts – no matter how large or small – so that we can continue to provide services for older people and their carers in South Australia.

    Any revenue we generate is directed to the work we do, not distributed elsewhere or to other causes.


    We welcome your support

    If you would like to support us to continue our important work, you can donate in many ways. You may choose to donate to a specific program or service, make a general donation, or make a bequest or legacy in your Will.

    Donations to Resthaven are used in a variety of ways – for enhancing lifestyle programs, purchasing special equipment to benefit residents and clients, enhancing the built environment, and more.

    If you do not have a specific purpose for your donation, gift or bequest, rest assured that Resthaven’s reason for being is to support older people and their carers, and it will be used for this purpose.

    Resthaven is financially independent of the Uniting Church.
