Make Your Birthday Count

Rita and Peter Premich established the Rita and Peter Premich Birthday Fund in 2019 to share their joy of giving with young people who share their love of helping others.

Rita and Peter have seen a lot of birthdays in their 58 years of marriage and are inspired by the youth in our community who donate their birthday money to support patient care at RVH. The Rita and Peter Premich Birthday Fund will match 100 percent of the donations received from young philanthropists; doubling their impact to patient care! Up to a total of $10,000.

For more information please contact Amber in the RVH Foundation office at (705) 728-9090 ext. 41517 or

Thank you to the following young philanthropists for generously donating their birthday money to patient care at RVH!

Special Occasion & Tribute Opportunities


Celebrate your special day by making a donation to RVH in lieu of wedding favours. A donation to RVH is a unique way to thank your guests for joining you on your wedding day, while helping to make a difference in your community.

We will work with you to create a custom certificate, coordinating with your theme to display proudly; in addition to providing a tax receipt for your gift.


Plagued with frustration while you seek to find the perfect gift in celebration of a birthday? Think outside the gift box by making a donation to RVH in honour of a colleague, friend or loved one.


Ask your family and friends to make a donation to mark your special occasion instead of buying you a present. In return, they will receive a tax receipt, our grateful thanks and the knowledge that they have finally found the perfect gift!

Little Wonders

The birth of a new child is a special moment, and we are so happy to have the opportunity to honour this moment with you! Celebrate your newest addition by gifting a flower tribute on the Little Wonders Wall.

A flower makes a lovely memento of your baby’s special day and is an ideal gift from parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends.
