Your donation is convenient, automatic and cost effective. Foundation mailing and administration costs are reduced, which helps more funds to be directed to the Hospital.

You may make your pre-authorized donations with a credit card, pre-authorized payments or through post-dated cheques. You may discontinue your gifts at any time by providing written notice to the Foundation.

Matching Gifts

Some employers match the charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, contact your employer or the Foundation office.

In Memory

A memorial gift can be made to remember a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. Your gift also demonstrates your commitment to improving the quality of life for those in our community.

Gifts of Securities

Personally donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds) is a terrific gift. You receive a full value tax receipt and do not pay tax on the appreciation, effectively reducing the cost of giving!

Do you want to help Norfolk General Hospital Foundation but don’t have the cash readily available? Donating securities directly to Norfolk General is a way to give that won’t affect your cash flow and also gives you a tremendous tax break immediately.

When shares of a listed company are transferred directly to our Foundation, the donor pays no tax on any capital gains, compared to the usual 50% taxability. A donation receipt is issued for the full value of the shares transferred, which will eliminate the capital gains tax and can be used to reduce other income taxes.

Step by step:
1. Meet with your financial advisor to select the appropriate security to transfer.
2. Download the securities transfer form to complete the transfer electronically.
3. Once the shares are received by the Foundation, a receipt will be issued for the market value on the day of the transfer.

A gift of appreciated securities is a highly tax-effective gift option, whether given today or in the future through a charitable bequest in your will.
