Give in Memory

There is no better way to honour a life, than to give a gift that helps others.

A donation to remember loved ones in lieu of flowers is a meaningful way and thoughtful gesture to celebrate your memories or express your sympathy to them. 

When you give in memory, we send the family a beautiful card to notify them of your gift. The amount is kept confidential. You will receive a tax receipt for your donation.

Would you like to encourage others to give a gift in lieu of flowers? 

Many people contact us after the death of their loved-one to ask how they can encourage others to donate to Richmond Hospital Foundation instead of sending flowers. 

Our staff are pleased to provide support to recognize a loved-one during this difficult time. We can:

  • Suggest wording for the obituary (ie; "In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Richmond Hospital Foundation in honour of their care for our community.")
  • Provide you with brochures for your memorial service
  • Discuss opportunities for recognition, such as a plaque or listing on our permanent donor walls.

For more information, please contact us at 604.244.5252 or email us to let us know how we can help. You can also donate now online.
