changes everything.

One-time & Monthly Giving

Make a one-time gift or become a monthly donor online, by mail, phone, or in person at the Foundation office. You can give monthly in any amount of your choosing, and you may adjust or cancel your donation at any time. As a monthly donor, you will receive one consolidated tax receipt following the end of each calendar year for your total year’s contribution.


Tribute & Memorial Giving

Honour a family member or friend, mark a special occasion, remember a loved one, or thank a Health Care Hero for exceptional care with a tribute gift. South Muskoka Hospital Foundation will convey your warm wishes with a custom card to the recipient. *NEW* Our Health Care Heroes will receive a special treat to recognize their dedication to exceptional care.


Planned Giving

Planned Giving is the process of designing charitable gifts enabling the donor to realize philanthropic objectives while maximizing tax and other financial objectives. Some of the more popular gift planning options include Bequests, Gift Annuities, Residual Interest Gifts, Charitable Remainder Trusts and Gifts of Life Insurance.


Gift of Securities

The federal budget tabled May 2, 2006, eliminated the capital gains tax on donations of publicly listed securities to charities. Therefore, you will not pay any income tax on the capital gain that is triggered by your donation to the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation. For example, if a donor donates stock that was originally purchased for $400 and now has a fair market value of $1,000, the donor will receive a tax receipt from South Muskoka Hospital Foundation for $1,000 and will not have to pay any tax on the gain.
