Ways to Donate Header2

Donating in honour of my doctor for the great care I received was the best way to say thanks to her.

Make a donation to the OSMH Foundation in the name of someone special in your life. These tribute and memorial gifts as well as our Gift of Thanks and Sea of Life programs are a meaningful way of honouring and recognizing those important individuals in your life, and at the same time supporting our community healthcare needs. To make a tribute or memorial gift, please:

Memorial Gifts

You may make a memorial gift in honour of a family member, friend, colleague or relative who has passed away. When you make a memorial donation you help improve the quality of healthcare in our community.

Tribute Gifts

You may make a tribute gift to recognize someone special who has touched your life, or to honour a special event such as a birthday, graduation, or anniversary.

When you make a tribute or memorial gift, your donation will be acknowledged immediately and a card will be sent to the individual or family that you are honouring. A thoughtful message on the card will let them know a special gift has been made in their name. The amount of your gift will be kept confidential. When mailing a gift, please include the name and address of the individual or family.

Gift of Thanks Grateful Patient Program

It may have been the compassionate smile of a nurse, a hug delivered to your child in the paediatric ward that erased their fears, or a helpful volunteer who treated you more like a friend than a patient.

You may choose to honour a special doctor, nurse, or an entire department that played a significant role in your care.  Your donation is a meaningful opportunity to say “thank you” and give back to those who have given to you.  At the same time, your generosity will enhance the care we are able to provide to our patients, helping us purchase much-needed equipment and technology.

When you make a gift, the individual you are honouring will receive a thank-you card with your message.

Sea of Life Baby Wall of Honour

Sea of Life Baby Wall

The birth of a child is a special moment in your life, and one that we at OSMH are proud to have shared with you and your family.

What better way to commemorate the birth of your baby than adding their name to our Sea of Life. By making a donation of your choice to the OSMH Foundation, you may honour your child with a fish inscribed with your baby’s name and birth date. Each fish will be placed in our Sea of Life Baby Wall of Honour - a whimsical scene featuring fish and other sea creatures, located just outside of our Birthing and New Family Services Unit.

The Sea of Life Baby Wall of Honour is a great way for grandparents, parents, relatives, and friends to commemorate this special occasion.
