Please make your cheque payable to William Osler Health System Foundation.
A fee of 2%, to a maximum of $5, can be added to your donation to offset administration fees, so more funds can go directly to our hospitals.
The admin fee helps offset costs associated with fundraising, such as resources required to process donations or issue tax receipts, communications, reporting and all other costs that support Osler Foundation’s fundraising efforts. Choosing to add a nominal amount to your donation helps offset administration fees so more can go directly to the cause.
Thank you for choosing to donate to Osler. If your donation is made online your tax receipt will be provided right away. If you choose to make a donation over the phone or by mail, your tax receipt will be mailed to you.
You can choose to direct your gift to any of our three hospitals, or to the area of greatest need. Please contact us at 905.863.2440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your wishes for your gift.
The hospital’s most urgent needs change on a day to day basis. Monetary donations allow Osler the most flexibility to purchase needed equipment. While monetary donations are preferred, in some cases Osler may be able to accept products. Please contact Mary Watson at email@example.com for more information.
Osler is incredibly grateful for support from the community, including monetary donations, PPE and food for Osler’s staff and physicians. Due to the complexity of safe distribution across the entire organization, meal donations are no longer accepted. If you’d like to support our Health Care Heroes with meals or snacks, you can make a financial donation online and allocate your gift to “Food for Health Care Heroes.”
We are grateful that you are considering a gift to Osler Foundation in your will. Please inform us of your wishes by calling 905.863.2440 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome the opportunity to thank you for your generosity and to discuss how you would like your gift to be used. We promise to protect your privacy and confidentiality. If you don’t wish to share this information with us, however, we respect that this is a personal decision, and you may still make the bequest without informing us.
Many people don’t realize that 100% of equipment in a hospital must be funded by community support. Additionally, 10% of construction costs for any upgrades or expansions must be paid through community donations.
We do not send representatives door to door to solicit funds. People are encouraged to call the local police if they are approached for donations by someone claiming to be from Osler Foundation.
To make a gift, please donate online or call us at 905.863.2440. Thank you for your support.
