An Update from NESA and Your Donations
Update as of July 1, 2023
NESA has relocated from the Northgate building likely until the Spring of 2024 as the facility undergoes some infrastructural renovations. As NESA navigates through these new and uncertain times, not only will this recreation community experience changes to its programming, operations and schedules, it is expected that it will be incurring some additional costs due to the required relocation expenses. If you are interested and able to provide NESA a donation at this time, we kindly ask you to consider donating to either the Sustainability Fund or the General Donation Fund so that we can utilize your donation in the area(s) needed most during this temporary relocation transition. Thank you for your ongoing support!
What does my donation do?
The North Edmonton Seniors Association strives to create fun, meaningful, and quality experiences for all of its members and friends within the community. It has been through the generous and kind donations from community partners and individual donors that our organization is able to grow and thrive like it has for over 40 years. Within our organization we have created several fundraising initiatives targeted at helping individuals and our senior community get connected to the quality resources, supports, and programs they are aspire to have. To ensure NESA can continue to excel at being a leader in senior recreation and be a permanent and reliable provider for both recreation and community supports, all monetary contributions will help with achieving this goal.

The Building Fund may be used only for structural changes or additions to the Northgate Lions Senior Recreation Centre building. The Building Fund is made up entirely of donations and income earned by the fund.
If you simply enjoy your time at NESA enough to want to donate, our general donations are used for very specific purposes, outside of operational and programming activities.
Supporting Our Seniors
Not everyone can make it to NESA to enjoy the company of others and Supporting our Seniors has supports available that can assist seniors overcome isolation and loneliness, or short term crisis. Those we help aren’t necessarily members of NESA but members in our communities. Funds donated to this area may go towards emergency situations where a senior may need such support to have their basics needs met. Additionally, funds may be used towards covering the costs of seniors in need of transportation to/from their community-based programs.
This fund was established by a very generous contribution from the estate of a former member, Therese Landry, who wanted NESA to remain accessible for all seniors to enjoy. The principal of the Sustainability Fund is protected and grows through donations and a portion of the income which the fund generates. A portion of the income from this fund is used to fund such programs as the Landry Leisure Pass and special projects approved by the NESA Board.
Thank you in advance for your generous support that allows us to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and their families each year.
