By choosing to remember someone close to you with a gift to RVH, you are honouring their memory in the most meaningful way. It is an opportunity to accomplish two very significant goals at once. You are able to recognize the life of your loved one while making an investment in the future health of our community. Your donation will help us expand our space, improve our technology and offer leading-edge treatments for more patients. Their memory lives on in the lives of those we are able to help.

Our team is committed to ensuring that your giving experience is as easy and convenient as possible. 

Memorial donations can be made in a number of ways:

  • Online using a credit card, direct debit or PayPal by clicking the “Donate Now” button at the top of the page. Once you reach the donation page, you will see an option to “Dedicate your donation”. 
  •  In person by visiting the RVH Foundation office located just inside the RVH Main Entrance at 201 Georgian Drive, Barrie. Cash, Cheque, Credit Card and Debit are accepted.
  • Over the phone by calling 705.739.5600
  • At a local funeral home. Please note that donations made at funeral homes may experience a delay in processing, due to the time it takes these gifts to be transferred to the RVH Foundation.

We are able to provide you with memorial donation cards for your Celebration of Life event. These cards each come with a postage paid envelope to make the giving process as stress-free as possible. Call the Foundation to request memorial donation cards at 705.739-5600.

Most families want to know who has made a gift in honour of their loved one. This allows them the opportunity to thank those who have contributed to commemorating their family member with a donation. 

Our team is happy to share the names and mailing addresses of memorial donors with a family; however, we never share the amount of the gift. We respect that all gifts made to honour someone’s memory are special. If you would prefer that your name and mailing address not be shared with a family, please mark your gift as anonymous at the time of giving.
