Since Lifestyle Communities began in 2003, our mission has always been to enable working, semi-retired and retired people over 50 to live an affordable and independent life of luxury with a real sense of community. With 10 established communities and another 3 in development or planning, Lifestyle Communities are an award-winning provider of over 50s residential communities in Victoria.
One of our founding partners, Dael Perlov, was especially committed to our mission. When Dael passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2014, we established the Lifestyle Communities Foundation in his honour.
Downsize to a bigger life
Lifestyle Communities Foundation is delighted to support Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation by donating $2 on behalf of each one of our homeowners, marked simply and meaningfully by a yearly birthday card. With over 2000 happy homeowners and more joining as we grow, we’re thrilled to have established a sustainable, ever-increasing way of supporting the crucial work of Avner in pancreatic cancer research and awareness-raising.
Lifestyle Communities Foundation also supports homeowners who initiate fundraising activities for cancer-based charities by matching dollar amounts raised. We donate funding equivalent to $50 for each Lifestyle Communities home. In 2016, Lifestyle Communities Foundation donated over $57,000, while our homeowners raised a further $25,000. Out of the total amount, $18,000 was donated directly to Avner’s Foundation.
