Cash is the easiest, fastest way to give. We will gratefully accept your donation in person, by mail or email, or via the phone with a credit card. A tax receipt will automatically be issued by mail for gifts of $20 or more and by request for lesser amounts. Contact us or donate now.
Pledge & Monthly Recurring Gifts
Make your donation on an installment plan and choose your own payment schedule - monthly, quarterly or annually. You may also arrange monthly donations through pre-authorised electronic funds transfers from your bank account or credit card. A tax receipt will be generated annually by mail unless you request otherwise. Complete the Monthly Giving Enrollment Form or contact us.
The milestones in our lives are often shared with those we hold dear or those who made a difference when it mattered. Making a donation to the Foundation can be a meaningful way in which to mark those milestones. Honour a loved one or a medical professional or pay tribute with a memorial gift for a friend or family member who has passed away. For memorials the Foundation will send a card to family to let them know a gift has been made in memory of their loved one. Contact us or donate now.
Island Health Employees
There are a variety of ways that Island Health employees can get involved.
Gifts in Your Will
Make a difference for future generations with a gift in your will. See Legacy Gifts for more information and to discuss how we can best acknowledge your contribution to the community.
Gifts of Securities
Making a donation by transferring ownership of a publicly traded security offers valuable tax benefits. Plus there are no capital gains tax on gifts of securities to registered charities - doubling your charitable tax benefits. See Legacy Gifts.
Note: It is the policy at the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation to sell the gifted securities as soon as possible after we have received them, unless otherwise agreed upon at the time of the gift.
Hold your own fundraising event and donate the proceeds to the Foundation. You can also participate in our events held throughout the year: Golf for Life, Learn for Life, Run for Life. Many local individuals, organizations and businesses hold events and promotions throughout the year that support us - please show them your support!
Give the gift of your time by joining the 100 plus volunteers who support the Foundation, Code Brew and Nanaimo Lifeline. Many rewarding volunteer opportunities are available.
