You can also request a gift in memory in your loved one’s obituary or at the Funeral Home, by stating “A gift in memory has been requested. Please support the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation in lieu of flowers. Online donations can be made at www.erhf.ca/how-to-give.

Sure! When you send your gift, include the name, department and reason for honouring that person. We will send an acknowledgement of your donation to your special person, without revealing the amount. You will also receive an official tax receipt.

Can I designate my gift to a particular purpose?

Of course! You can direct your gift to a piece of equipment on our Capital Equipment Priority List, a hospital department, Eagle Ridge Manor or you can state “Greatest Needs”.

Making a monthly donation is more convenient for me - how do I set this up?

Our Monthly Giving Program is easy and convenient. You can contribute monthly by filling out our online form or calling the Foundation to make arrangements, at 604-469-3128.

You can set up your monthly donation using VISA, Mastercard or a pre-authorized payment from your bank account. Your pre-authorized monthly payment can be processed on either the 1st or the 15th of the month and you change the amount or timing anytime. We will also send you a tax receipt at the end of the year for your total monthly gifts.

Can I leave a gift to Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation in my will?

An estate gift is a wonderful way to support the hospital. You can leave a specific gift, such as a designated amount of money. You also have the option of leaving a residual gift that is a percentage of the amount left over after your debts have been paid and your specified gifts have been made.

Please discuss your will with your financial advisor, accountant, lawyer or notary before making a commitment.

What should my will say?

Here are language examples you could use:

“I give to Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation in Port Moody, BC the sum of __________.”

“I give to Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation in Port Moody, BC 500 shares of XYZ Corporation (or, my oil well in Fort McMurray or, my 1963 Chev Belaire convertible).”

For a residual gift, “I give Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation of Port Moody, BC __________% (for example 50%) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.”

What are some other types of giving?

See How to Give or ask for Eleanor Ryrie, Director of Annual and Planned Giving at 604-469-3128.

There are several different ways to make future gifts, including life insurance, gifts of retirement fund accumulations, gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and gifts of residual interest. Please consult your financial advisor to make sure a future gift is right for you.

The Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation is a non-granting fundraising organization. All gifts donated to the foundation support the hospital’s priority needs.
