Other Ways to Give

Our vision is to inspire giving in support of the highest quality health care and with your generous support we can achieve this. All gifts, big and small, have a tremendous impact on the health care services that are provided and as a donor you have the choice of how you would like to give.


We appreciate any financial investment that you can make to help support health care on the North Shore via the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. Donate now

Monthly Giving Program

Monthly giving allows you to continue your support easily and make a difference year round. Here are a few of the many benefits of giving monthly:

  • Convenience: you only need to sign up once and can spread your donations out over the year, receiving one consolidated tax receipt in January;
  • Flexibility: you are able to change or cancel your payments at any time; and
  • Cost Savings: your ongoing donations reduce our administration and processing costs allowing us to put more of your donation towards improving health care at LGH.

Your monthly gifts also provide us with stable funding, allowing us to plan projects and campaigns with the comfort of knowing that we have a reliable flow of donations. Even modest donations of $5 or $10 a month add up and help make a significant impact. Did you know that while a monthly gift of $10 equates to just $120 per year, a daily coffee can cost $700 annually? Donate now!

Publicly Traded Securities

Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, and bonds.  By donating appreciated securities, donors pay no tax on the capital gains, receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities, and reduce their taxes. Through a gift of securities, you can help us to bring leading-edge health care to the North Shore. To learn more, click here.

Vendors’ Corner to Conclude Dec. 31st, 2015

Lions Gate Hospital’s aging atrium area is slated to undergo an exciting physical transformation. Like most major renovation projects, this one will involve significant change – change that will no longer allow us to accommodate our long-serving family of community vendors. This being the case, we will be concluding our Vendor’s Corner program at the end of 2015.

If you have any questions please email info@lghfoundation.com.
