Memoriam and Special Occaision Gifts
Give in Memory

Make a memorial or special occasion donation today by clicking HERE

You may make a direct memorial donation by mailing a cheque with the name of your loved one on the memo line or by including a note with your loved one's name along with your cash donation. You may also bring your donation in person to the Foundation office.
Donations to the WDH Foundation in memory of a loved one may also be made by attending a visitation or service at any funeral home. Below you will find links to our local funeral homes.

Give in Honour of Celebrations and Special Occaisions
Are you or someone you love celebrating a special occaision? Mark the event through a donation. Have your guests make a donation in your honour instead of bringing gifts, or make a donation in honour of your loved one's special celebrations. The person who is being honoured will be notified that a thoughtful donation has been made in recognition of their special occaision. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned.
You can also make a donation on behalf of your loved one. They will receive any recognition for the donation and the tax deductible receipt. Your name will no longer be associated with the donation, and the recipient will know the amount of the donation. If you wish to make a gift in this way, please make it very clear on your cheque and/or note that the donation is being made on behalf of another person (include name and address) and not simply in honour of an event.

Birthdays and Anniversaries
Having guests make donations to a charity rather than bringing gifts to a birthday party or anniversary party is a great idea. If you would like guests to donate to the WDH Foundation, please inform the Foundation office of your intentions so that we can prepare to receive donations from your event.

Ensure that guests who donate via cheque identify your event on the memo line, and that guests who donate cash include their name and address, as well as the event name with their donations.

Would you like to make a donation to the WDH Foundation in lieu of wedding favours? Please contact the Foundation office to inform us of your intentions. We will send you personalized cards to inform your guests of your gift.

Please contact the office at 519-357-3711 x 5278 with any questions regarding memoriam and honourary gifts or to make arrangements.
