Defining a




There are many ways that you can help the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation purchase medical equipment, improve facilities, support nurses’ education, and enhance patient care at our hospital. You can give now on-line or print out a donation form to fax or mail to our office with your cheque or credit card details.

Many people do not realize that it’s also possible to help Lady Minto by making a gift of securities or by planning a future gift. A future or planned gift may include a gift in your will, a gift of life insurance, a gift of an RRSP or RRIF, or a trust or gift annuity. Planned gifts are usually arranged as part of your financial and estate planning, and they enable you to set aside a portion of your assets for Lady Minto without putting a strain on your current budget.

You can also call our office at 250-538-4845 send an e-mail to to receive more information about giving to Lady Minto. More and more people are discovering the convenience of making a monthly donation. You can easily set up a monthly giving commitment using our on-line or printable donation forms.

All the ways to give to the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation

Donate online through Pay Pal by simply clicking on the “Donate” button beside the category below that you wish to donate to. On entrance to PayPal you can decide to pay by Visa, Mastercard, or Pay Pal if you have an account.

Annual Fund

Gifts to the annual fund are directed to the Lady Minto Hospital’s greatest needs, including equipment items and projects, at the discretion of the Board of Directors in consultation with the Site Manager at Lady Minto Hospital.


Extended Care Fund

Provides funding that supports activities and comforts that improve the quality of life for our Extended Care Residents and other patients.


Education Fund

This fund ensures that the health care staff at the Lady Minto Hospital have access to funds that will advance their skills and increase their knowledge of new techniques.


Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund ensures the stability of funding to support the hospital’s needs. The community has always been incredibly generous in responding to our fundraising appeals. But, as with a family, it makes sense to have a financial nest egg that grows over time and earns interest that can be used to supplement other income for the Foundation. That ‘nest egg’ is our Endowment Fund.


Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are a wonderful way to remember loved ones, and to share gifts that truly make a difference for patients and residents. We are always grateful when families name the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation for this purpose. Memorial gifts are directed to the Lady Minto Hospital’s areas of greatest need at the discretion of the Board of Directors, unless otherwise requested by the family. Please include the memorial name and the name, address and relationship of the person you wish to receive acknowledgement of your gift.
