How will my donation be used?
By default, your donation supports the area of greatest need at Humber River Health. If you want to designate your gift to a particular Program of Care, just let us know when you make your donation! We are very happy to help you give back to the area of care that is closest to you.
When I give to recognize a caregiver, will they be notified?
Absolutely! Honorees are given a special silver lapel pin to wear proudly. Your words of thanks are shared with them in a personalized card. If you make your donation in the Foundation Office (Level 1, across from the Central Elevators) you will be given the option to handwrite your card. If you make your donation online or over the phone we will print your message for you.
Is there a minimum to give to recognize my caregiver?
There is no minimum or maximum donation amount. We gladly accept any donation amounts to recognize our staff in honour of their outstanding care. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of over $20.
