Ways To Give

Monthly giving

Are you a committed supporter of RVH?
Do you make frequent donations to the Foundation?
Would you like to see your donations go farther?
Monthly giving could be for you!

This convenient and affordable option to make your donation fit your budget lowers administration costs, which allows your dollar to be best spent on equipment, programs and general needs. Your regular donation allows the hospital to plan more effectively and efficiently, and you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are supporting a valuable and critical community asset, so it will be ready when you or your loved ones need it.

How it works:

  • Choose the amount you want to give
  • Choose the method: post-dated cheques, automatic debit, credit card payments or payroll deduction for RVH staff
  • Contact the foundation
  • Monthly amounts can be altered at any time

Commemorative garden stones

Garden stones offer a new way to show your support

Every true gardener knows that winter's snowfalls cannot stand in the way of the next big landscaping project. They just provide the quiet time necessary to plan and prepare.

Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation has created a commemorative walk leading up to the hospital's front door. Engraved garden stones mark the path, and can be purchased for a donation of $500 to the Foundation.

Inscriptions in the stone will recognize your contribution and pay tribute to anyone you would like to honour.

This is an extension of the very successful brick campaign that provides a permanent indoor display of RVH supporters.

"We've had a number of people ask to buy a brick and we just don't have the room," explains RVH Foundation Director of Development Barb Desilets. "We thought this would be a very nice extension to that concept."

Anyone interested in purchasing a garden stone or would like more information can contact the Foundation office at 613-432-4851 ext. 263 or desiletsb@renfrewhosp.com

You can support the work of the hospital, fulfil your charitable goals and achieve the best tax savings possible by making a planned gift.

Helpful tips to think about when planning an event

Come and Meet Us
Arrange to meet with the foundation to discuss your ideas or details of your event.

Form an Event Planning Committee
Successful events result from planning and organizing by enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. If your planning committee has enough members to share tasks and a variety of skills experience, you have the right formula for a winning event.

Identify Your Audience
You will be successful by understanding who will support and attend your event. Identify your target audience by considering who's most likely to attend.

Set the Date
Schedule your event for a time and location convenient for your audience.

Event Logistics
Attention to detail is essential to the success of every event. The Foundation would be happy to review the logistics of your event. We can provide you with a checklist to help you run your event smoothly.

Promotion and Publicity
Eye-catching flyers, tickets and other promotional materials will help make your event a success. We would be proud to have your event materials display our logo and name. It can be confusing as to how to use the Foundation’s name correctly, therefore we ask that all promotional and publicity material be approved by the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation. Please allow one week for approval.

Donation and Collection of Funds
The foundation staff will work with you on the collections of funds; arranging photos and recogonition as well as receipting.

Thank you!
Please say "thank you" and acknowledge everyone who participated or supported your event.
This is the most important step. Let those who attended and helped know how much you appreciate their support. They will be delighted to hear how much money they helped raise and how it contributes to the improvement of patient care and finding cures for diseases. It also makes it easier when you start planning your next event.

We would love to welcome you back year after year!

Thank You!
