Not-for-Profit vs For-Profit Difference

When searching for a senior living community, there are a few key features to consider. One characteristic that is important to look into is whether the company is a Not-for-Profit or a For-Profit organization.

What makes up the Not-for-Profit Difference?


Not-for-Profit Communities have a promise in their board. Their board of volunteers promises to hold the company accountable, without any compensation. The board always acts in the best interest of the community, as they are not stakeholders and do not have anything to lose.



Not-for-Profit communities are committed to you, and their company. For profit communities can be frequently bought and sold. Not-for-Profit communities have often been in operation for many years, withstanding the test of time, as the organization seeks out the long-term benefit of their work.



The mission is at the center of it all for Not-for-Profit communities. It is the lens through which we consider for everything that we do. At MRC The Langford, we are driven by our ICARE values of Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence.



Not-for-Profit communities reinvest their revenue right back into the community, in ways that support the organization’s mission.Bottom line, there are no share-holders to demand profits which leaves all of the revenues available to improve the lives of the residents.
