What is the Seniors Resource Centre of Newfoundland & Labrador?
The Seniors Resource Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador ( SRC NL)is a non-profit, charitable, voluntary organization administered by a Board of Directors. We are dedicated to promoting the independence and well being of older adults in Newfoundland and Labrador through the provision of information as well as various programs and services.
The SRC NL provides invaluable services to communities around the province. The Centre relies heavily on both the devotion of volunteers and the financial generosity of individuals and corporations and funding from various levels of government. Without this partnership, our programs would not survive.

These programs and services all require funding to remain operational. All donations receive a tax receipt and a listing in our Annual Report.

You may be able to give more than you might realize while receiving substantial tax advantages during your lifetime.
