    Any charities for this would be local. We don't even know where you or your mother live (country, province, state, etc.). You don't say why she must have a stair lift. Many people with disabilities have to live only on their first floor, even a hospital bed in the living room. If there is not bathroom, a bedside commode may have to be used. You might find a used chair lift on eBay, but it won't be free. Sorry.

    Our local Lions Chapter has a wheelchair and other equipment for loan outs or give aways. They may have one. I know ours gets equipment like that all the time. Even the higher end power chairs that are like new.

    if you have a local Elk lodge maybe give them a try, they helped me out with a powerchair when I was first injured.

    What state is she from?
    check out Craigslist. They have lift for cheap.

    I found my lift on eBay. Luckily, the guy was 35 minutes away. He had it buy it now for $900. When we went to pick it up he was nice enough and gave us back $300.
