Partial funding from the government covers only about 55% of our annual operating budget. This goes towards medical costs, which include the clinical staff in the residence. The rest is raised through the generous support of our community.

Donations will be acknowledged with a thank you letter, and a receipt will be issued to the donor for income tax purposes. Should a donor ask that their gift remain anonymous, the request will be respected.

Hospice is committed to fundraising best practices to ensure the transparent and responsible management of all donated funds. Ongoing fundraising initiatives encourage the community’s philanthropic culture to support present and future hospice palliative care services within the region.

THANK YOU

Gifts of Securities

By donating a gift of securities directly to Hospice, you will not be taxed on capital gains. By contrast, if you sell the stock and donate the cash proceeds, you will pay tax on capital gains. If you are interested in making a gift of a qualified security, please contact our Director of Fund Development.

A Lasting Legacy

Planned giving offers a unique opportunity to ensure support in the future for a cause you care about deeply. By designating a future gift, such as a bequest, securities, or life insurance policy, you will help provide palliative care for generations to come. We encourage donors who are considering a planned gift to speak first with their financial advisor or lawyer and family before contacting our Director of Fund Development.
