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!

Annual Appeal

Each year Hospice Orillia reaches out to donors to ask for support of our Annual Appeal. The funds generated through the Annual Appeal go towards helping those in need of practical, emotional and spiritual support while coping with advanced illness, death and bereavement. While Hospice Orillia receives partial funding, we are responsible for raising the balance of the funds required in order to continue to offer the programs free of charge to those in need.  To review this years Annual Appeal please click on the image.

Please feel free to share with your friends or family; the sharing of our Annual Appeal helps to increase its success!

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.
