Memorial giving

A celebration of life means honouring the way someone lived.

Memorial donations are a meaningful way to pay tribute to a relative, friend or colleague who has passed. When you make a memorial donation to the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor Foundation you honour a special life by helping to improve the lives of children and their families in the community we serve.

Making a memorial donation is easy

Donate online or mail your donation to:

AGH/FVM Foundation
75 Spring Street
Almonte, ON K0A 1A0

How to direct donations in memory of your loved one

Your funeral director can help you with this. The AGH/FVM Foundation has relationships with funeral homes in the area and we work together to support you during this difficult time.

All you need to do is inform your funeral home that you wish to have donations to the AGH/FVM Foundation in lieu of flowers and they will do the rest.

How to inform guests to donate to the AGH/FVM Foundation in lieu of flowers

Your funeral director can guide you on this but most commonly people write in the funeral notice:
“In lieu of flowers a donation in memory of (name of loved one) to the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor Foundation would be appreciated.”

How will you know who donated in lieu of flowers

After donations have been made in lieu of flowers, you will receive an acknowledgement letter with a summary of the thoughtful gifts of others.

Thank you for choosing to honour the memory of your loved one by supporting Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor.
