Tribute Program

Often people come into our lives who touch us deeply, either through their courage, positive disposition, or friendship.
The Tribute Program allows you to honour these special people with a commemorative card. For a donation of $10 or more to Providence Healthcare Foundation, we will send a tribute card on your behalf.

Honour Someone Special

Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or baptisms: these are the perfect times to honour someone special with a Tribute Card while showing your support for Providence Healthcare. Many people also choose to thank a special caregiver at Providence Healthcare for outstanding care using our Tribute Program.


In Memory of Someone You Loved

Has someone special in your life passed away or do you know someone who has lost a family member or friend? The “In Memory” card is a thoughtful way to let your friends and family know that you are thinking about them in their time of sorrow.

If you wish to send a Tribute Card, please contact the donor hotline at 416-285-3630 or email at foundation@providence.on.ca.

Gifts of Public Securities

Providence Healthcare Foundation accepts donations of publicly listed securities that can be traded on a recognized stock exchange, e.g. TSE, NYSE. A charitable tax receipt will be issued by Providence Healthcare Foundation for the value of the shares based on the end-of-day trading price on the day the securities are transferred. Your donation of securities can be applied towards a tax credit when filing your income tax return. Please click HERE to access the Foundation’s authorization form. If you wish to make a donation of public securities, please contact Emily Dawson at 416-285-3666, ext 4032 or email at edawson@providence.on.ca.


Donated gifts-in-kind can be used as an important fundraising vehicle and for our various special events. Tax receipts can be issued if the gift is accompanied by an official appraisal or business receipt. In some cases, an independent appraisal verifying the value of the gift is required in order for a tax receipt to be issued. The Canada Revenue Agency rules are very specific with respect to appraised values. The Foundation will work with you to ensure an appropriate receipt is issued where possible.

If you wish to donate a gift-in-kind, please contact Brianna Szarka at 416-285-3666, ext. 5025 or email at bszarka@providence.on.ca.
