We need your help to provide free of charge hospice care to individuals in need. While we receive financial support from the North Simcoe-Muskoka Local Health Integration Networks, this support amounts to approximately 50% of the total funds needed to operate our hospice. The rest of the funds come from our community, individuals like you.
Your donation will help us to continue to provide support to those people in our community living with life-limiting illness or grief. There are several ways you can donate:
• In Memoriam
When a loved one dies, you may choose to make Hospice Georgian Triangle your charity of choice. Hospice Georgian Triangle will send a card to the family to notify them of your gift and we will also send you a tax receipt.
• Community Sponsored/Third Party Events
Each year some of our community friends will host an event to benefit our Hospice. These events are an important source of funds. If you would like to host an event in our community, please call our office for more information.
• Hospice Fundraising Events
Every year Hospice holds a number of our own signature events as part of our ongoing fundraising activity. Please see the list of upcoming events in our Calendar of Events.
• Donations in lieu of Gifts
Many people will honour a special event, such as a holiday, birthday, anniversary or wedding by suggesting that their friends or family make a donation to Hospice Georgian Triangle in lieu of gifts. We can prepare a card to include with your invitation and we will issue a tax receipt and acknowledgement of the donor’s gift. You will also receive a letter outlining all of the gifts we receive.
• Gifts of Stocks/Securities
Gifts that involve a donation of securities, personal and real property in lieu of cash are accepted by Hospice Georgian Triangle. A tax receipt can be provided for the fair market value of these gifts. Please contact our Development Coordinator for more information.
Planned gifts, or bequests, are major gifts left in a will that are intended for the future without affecting the donor’s current income. There are many different tax advantages to these types of gifts. Donors considering this type of gift are encouraged to speak to their personal financial advisor and lawyer, and then contact our office to discuss any questions. Planned gifts made to the Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation are recognized as a part of our Susie Newton Society.
