At the Reception Desk at the Chemainus Health Care Centre. Please leave your donation with the receptionist who will issue a tax receipt as appropriate.
- In Memoriam
An In memoriam donation is an extremely important source of funds for the Foundation. Please consider this as a way of supporting the community while honouring the memory of someone special.
Other important ways to support a healthy community include, naming the Foundation as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy, transferring qualifying securities, and bequests given through a Will. Bequests are common option chosen by many and are a valued source of funds for the Foundation.
