Overview

It takes many helping hands and significant community support to ensure that Hospice programs and services are offered free of charge and are able to touch the lives of hundreds of individuals every year. Programs are not  funded by government and each year we must raise funds to continue to offer our community this important support. The Hospice Society holds several fundraising, friend raising and public education events each year as one way to build support and awareness in the community.

Working towards a goal.
As a registered charity we rely on support from individuals, service clubs, businesses, foundations and churches to meet our annual operating budget. 100% of the funds raised by Hospice stays right here in our communities, helping your friends and neighbors during difficult and emotional times.

Honour someone through a commemorative donation.
Whenever you want to say thank you, congratulations, or I’ll never forget you, pay tribute to someone special by making a donation to hospice. It is a unique way to honour a friend’s memory, birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or other special event. We will send a card on your behalf acknowledging your donation and you will receive a tax receipt. You can use the Memorial Donation form to mail in your donation.

Give your ongoing support.
Making monthly or annual donations helps to ensure our organization has stability and strength to continue offering support to families at end of life. Secure on-line donations can be made through our partner Canada Helps, or you can print the donation form to mail in your donation.

Make a planned gift.
Leaving a gift to the charity of your choice in your will can be very significant to the receiving charity while giving your estate incredible tax savings. Other gifts that result in significant tax savings include: trusts, life insurance policies, real estate, stocks or securities. Below you will find some general information on planned giving. Talk to your financial advisor or lawyer for more information.

Donate a gift in-kind.
Do you have an item or service to donate that would benefit hospice? Perhaps you have caregiving or medical supplies, books, or items that could be auctioned at a special event. Contact the Hospice office to discuss your gift in-kind.

"With no government funding, the hospice society relies heavily on fundraisers and donations... Harrison says this change has already allowed the team to put their focus back on developing programs and services."
