The Lady Minto Hospital Foundation’s donor recognition program provides meaningful recognition of donations and identifies levels of giving. The donor recognition system applies to all gifts including bequests, memorial gifts, annual campaign gifts and events and all other miscellaneous gifts. Small businesses, corporations, service clubs and foundations will be recognized in the same way as individuals. Cumulative gift totals will be used when determining the appropriate donor gift level.
The following levels of giving are recognized:
Donors less than $250
Supporters $250 – $999
Patrons $1,000 – $4,999
Benefactors $5,000 – $9,999
President’s Circle $10,000 – $24,999
Building Partners $25,000 – $99,999
DONOR RECOGNITION WALL
Be sure to visit our donor recognition wall in the main lobby of the hospital. The glass work was commissioned by local Salt Spring Island artist, Gerry Ringrose.
The Donor recognition wall includes the following categories of gifts:
In Memoriam Gifts
Names of the deceased will appear on the “in memoriam” display panel.
Donors of bequests will be listed on the “Bequests” display panel.
Annual Donor Display Panel
The annual donor display panel will include names of donors who have given an accumulated amount of $250 or more during the previous fiscal year. The annual donor display panel will be updated each year in September.
Friends of Lady Minto Perpetual Panel
The Friends of Lady Minto panel is a perpetual listing of donors who have given a cumulative total of $5,000. The Friends of Lady Minto panel will be updated each year in September.
The names of individual donors under the age of 18 and youth groups will be recognized for their gifts on the Young Philanthropists panel.
The anonymity of donors will be respected.
DONOR RECOGNITION AND THE PRIVATE ACT
As part of our donor recognition policy, the Foundation publishes a list of annual donors of $250 and up in the Annual Report. The report is distributed each fall to our donors from the previous two fiscal years. If you do not wish your name to appear on this list, please contact our office at 250-538-4845, or email us at LadyMinto.Foundation@viha.ca
