Ways to Give

A gift to your Foundation is the best investment that you can make for your community with the benefits compounding for years to come. There are many ways in which you can support your Foundation.

Cash Donations

Include the Foundation on your list of regular charitable giving. We welcome gifts of cash, personal cheques, money orders, Visa, MasterCard or American Express. Please print out the donation sheet for full details on how to donate to the Foundation.

Give Every Month (Be a GEM)

You may contribute to the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation donation through monthly bank withdrawals or credit card payments. Please follow these simple steps:

  • Visit imagem.ca and complete the information requested
  • You will receive an annual official donation receipt at the end of the taxation year.
Online Donations:

You can contribute to the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation online. An official tax receipt will be sent directly to you by email.

Annual Receipts:

We issue tax receipts at the end of January after each calendar year. These receipts will be for the cumulative total of gifts given throughout the previous tax year. Should you wish an individual receipt, please notify our office. Note that all online donations receive a tax receipt immediately. Thank you!

Memorial Giving:

This is a thoughtful way to help. More often, people are giving to charity in lieu of flowers at the time of the passing of a loved one. Families and individuals indicate their wish to provide memorial gifts to Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation to the Funeral Director or in the obituary. If done through the Funeral Home, they will advise the family of gifts received in your loved one's memory. We will also send out a notification to let the family know about each gift. The donor will receive recognition as well as an official tax receipt. Cumulative gifts in memory of a loved one that total more than $2,500 will also be recognized on the Donor Wall in the Saugeen Memorial Hospital.

Clubs and Organizations:

Through their many contributions to the Foundation, Clubs and Organizations play an important role. We are always pleased to present a program at any Club meeting or to work with a local Organization in raising funds to support our local Hospital.

Special Events/Campaigns:

From time to time, the Foundation may sponsor community events or undertake special appeals. Your support of these activities will ensure their success.

Corporate Giving:

Communities grow with the support of Corporate philanthropy. Work with your employer to support your Foundation through payroll deductions, organize or sponsor a special event, or simply give annually.

Volunteer your time:

Nothing is more priceless than how you spend your free time. Give back to your community by donating your time and skills to the Hospital or Foundation. Find out more about volunteering with us.

Planned Giving:

Planned giving broadens the options for donors to the Foundation in that the gift may be made out of your assets rather than income.

Here are a few of the choices available:

a. Bequests by Will
b. Gifts of Publicly Listed Securities
c. Gifts to the Ensuring Care Endowment Fund

Should you have an interest, we recommend that you discuss the idea with your personal, legal or financial advisors. We would be pleased to meet with you to provide assistance. For more information on long term gift planning, please see Planned Giving.
