Donate in memorium and in honour
Memorial donations are a fitting way to honour the passing of a relative or friend and can be made through the funeral home or directly through our Society. At your request, a card can be sent to the family informing them a memorial donation has been made by you in the memory of their loved one.
Donations can also be made in the name of an individual to honour a birthday, Christmas, wedding, anniversary or any other time you need to give a gift.
Give at work
Individuals, businesses, and organizations can make one major donation a year. This can be in response to our direct mail campaign or because they have made us part of their planned annual charitable giving
Healthpartners, a group of sixteen of Canada’s most trusted health charities, offers employees and retirees the opportunity to invest in direct services, public education, health promotion and research through our unique partnership.

Matching Gift programs
Many companies encourage their employees, spouses, or retirees to contribute to charities by offering a "matching gift" program. The company donates funds to match your contribution to the same charity. Matching Gifts programs increase the value of your gift and make greater impact in your community. By taking advantage of your company's Matching Gift program, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution.
Find out if your employer has a Matching Gift program by checking with your Human Resources department.
