Thank you for considering a gift to support Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in honour of your friend or loved one.

The death of a friend or family member can be a difficult time emotionally, and we want to assure you that our team is committed to ensuring that your gifts are used to support the area of care that would most honour the memory of this special person. Memorial gifts are a meaningful way to honour the passing of a loved one. These gifts help to advance health care services for the patients and families of our region, while at the same time, helping to create a legacy for our friends and family that have passed away.

Most families want to know who has made a gift in honour of their loved one. This allows a family the opportunity to thank those donors that have helped to create a legacy through their giving.

Our team is happy to share the names and mailing addresses of memorial donors with a family, however we never share the amount of the gift that has been made. The ability to give a gift is different with each person, and we respect that all gifts made to honour someone’s memory are special.

If you would prefer that your name and mailing address not be shared with a family, please mark your gift as anonymous at the time of giving.

Many families request that memorial gifts be designated to a specific area of Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. The family may have a special connection to a specific area of health care, received care from a specific program, or a family may recognize a specific need and want to help. If gifts are undesignated, our team will ensure that your loved one is honoured by designating the gift to the Area of Greatest Need. Some areas that a family might wish to consider include:

  • Moments Matter Campaign
  • Advanced Cardiac Care
  • Child and Youth Mental Health
  • Compassionate Care Fund
  • Dialysis
  • Emergency Department
  • Equipment & Technology
  • Teaching and Research
  • Mental Health & Addictions
  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
  • Paediatrics
  • Rotary Lodge
  • Volunteer Services
  • Surgical Services
  • Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre
