Make a Donation

Ways to Give

We are dependent on the generosity of the community and fundraising for the majority of our operation revenue. Carpenter Hospice needs to raise over $1.4 million each year, which provides us with the capacity to offer all of our services and programs at no cost to the end users.

Every dollar makes a difference in allowing the hospice to provide the highest quality of care for our residents and program participants.

All cheques can be made payable to Carpenter Hospice. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for eligible donations of $20 or greater if the name, full mailing address and donation amounts are tracked at the time of the donation.

Charitable Status Number: 86312 1125 RR0001

Memorial Donations 

Honour someone special by making a donation in their memory. 

By choosing to celebrate the life of a loved one through a memorial donation, you enable Carpenter Hospice to provide support for our future families.

The family of the person memorialized or honoured will be notified of your generous gift but no amount will be named. Please download a copy of our In Memoriam Donation Form here.

When a person becomes a resident of Carpenter Hospice we are given a family contact name. The designated contact person becomes the link for any written correspondence with the family, and will also receive the notifications for all donations made in memory of their loved one.

As we often receive multiple in-memoriam donations, we send the notifications to family approximately every 4-6 weeks in order to provide a full list of all those who have completed this significant act. When donors make a donation we let them know that we will be sending a donor list to the family contact. The listing contains only names and addresses. Individual donation amounts are kept confidential.
