Hospice Orillia relies on community donations for operational support of our programs and services. Government funding covers a portion of our operating costs, but we rely on donations from our community to continue to run our programs.
We are only able to maintain our level and quality of services because of the generosity of our supporters – through their gifts and their volunteer activities. Collectively our community’s support enables us to deliver programs and services to all our clients and their families without cost.
Please see below for several opportunities to financially support the work of Hospice Orillia!
Hike for Hospice
While the Hike for Hospice takes place across the country, this year Hospice Orillia and the Mariposa House Hospice co-hosted the local hike on Sunday, May 5 at Couchiching Beach Park in Orillia. The event saw 300+ participants who raised over $30,000 all of which stayed local to help local people!!

Come show your support for Hospice Orillia at Geneva Charity Bingo (located at the Royal Canadian Legion). A group of Hospice Orillia volunteers will be on hand to sell you Bingo cards!
The funds raised from our monthly bingo sessions go directly towards our programs and make it so we are able to continue to offer them to our clients and their families at no cost.
Upcoming Bingo Dates:
Hospice Orillia is a charity recipient of the Orillia Legion Bingo events, which requires volunteers to help sell BINGO cards and tidy up at the end of the event.
The BINGO events for Hospice Orillia take place once a month, either on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday evening. Volunteers are asked to start at 5:15 p.m. and the event typically goes until 9:30 p.m.
If you are interested in becoming a Hospice Orillia fundraising volunteer or if you are hosting an event that you would like to donate the proceeds to Hospice Orillia, please contact us.
Third Party Events are fundraisers held on behalf of Hospice Orillia, but organized and run independently. We are grateful to the businesses, service clubs, organizations and families that donate the proceeds of these events to us. Third party events help to not only generate revenue for Hospice Orillia but also to raise public awareness of the role the Hospice Orillia plays in providing practical, emotional and spiritual support to those in our community coping with advanced illness, death and bereavement.
Although Hospice Orillia encourages third-party fundraising events, we require that events submit a third-party event registration form. Hospice Orillia maintains the right to decline events. This is an important safeguard in preserving the integrity of our charitable status, name and reputation as well as our commitment to our donors. When you are ready with your plan, please fill out our third party event registration form and return either via email or regular mail.
Thank you for your interest in fundraising in support of Hospice Orillia!
