5. Monthly Gifts

Monthly Giving is another way of maximizing your contributions to Hospice Peterborough while providing us with a dependable cash flow to fund programs and services and commit to future projects. Your regular monthly gift can be made using a void cheque (withdrawn monthly from your account), post-dated cheques, VISA, AMEX or MasterCard.

6. Planned Giving

As the name implies, planning ahead to leave a bequest in your will is one the most thoughtful ways to help others while leaving a lasting gift to our community. There are many kinds of planned gifts such as a bequest, estate plan, annuity, charitable trust, pooled income, real estate and life insurance.

A planned gift is a special legacy for the future, which provides a source of financial support for Hospice Peterborough while also providing personal tax benefits. These gifts are arranged in the present, usually through an individual’s estate or financial planner and actualized at a later date.

7. Gifts In-kind

Hospice Peterborough appreciates gifts of in-kind items such as auction items, art work, prizes, services, furniture as well as some food and beverage items. If you would like to donate in-kind gifts to Hospice Peterborough please give us a call at 705.742.4042. As a registered charity, Hospice Peterborough can issue tax receipts for the fair market value of some in-kind gifts.

8. Endowment Fund

Contributing to Hospice Peterborough’s Endowment fund helps to ensure the future of Hospice programs. Your donation will be added to the existing capital of the fund and it will be preserved there while generating a perpetual source of income. Tax receipts are provided for all contributions.

Please consult a professional financial advisor if you have any questions or concerns.

9. Donations in Lieu of Gifts

Many families choose to honour a special event like a birthday, anniversary or wedding by suggesting their guests make a donation to Hospice Peterborough in lieu of gifts. We will prepare special cards for you to include with your invitations and your friends will receive an income tax receipt and acknowledgement of their gift. You will receive notice of all of the gifts we receive.

Thank You
