Ways To Give

Ways To Give

Your donation, no matter how big or how small, impacts every interaction with every patient, and resonates through every department on every floor of our Hospital. Your generosity empowers and encourages our doctors, nurses, staff, researchers and volunteers to strive for excellence, every day.

It is always the right time to make a difference.

Make your donation go the extra mile with just a few dollars each month. It only takes an easy click of a button to set up monthly deductions from your credit card.  Did you know that a donation of $21 a month will grant you the status of Ambassador of the St. Mary’s Society? Click here for more information.  In January you will receive an income tax receipt for the total amount you have given in the prior year.

Make a donation in honour of the memory of a family member, friend or colleague. Often families will choose to have donations made to St. Mary’s in memory of a loved one in lieu of sending flowers. The Foundation will notify the family of your kind gesture.

Show your appreciation by making a donation in honour of a doctor, nurse or volunteer who made a difference in your experience at St. Mary’s. You may also pay tribute to a loved one by making a donation in their honour for their birthday, anniversary or any special occasion.
