Fund Development

Your gift is more than a donation.

It’s a commitment to the future of hospice palliative care in our community.

Each year, 50 percent of Victoria Hospice Society's operating funds are raised from a variety of sources, including private donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorship and fundraising events. Annual funding priorities are determined by the Victoria Hospice Society.

The Society is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors and is a registered charity (Charitable Registration #11928-4230-RR0001) by the Canada Revenue Agency under the Income Tax Act. Charitable tax receipts for donations to Victoria Hospice are issued for the full amount allowable under Canada Revenue Agency regulations.

The Society aspires to meet the standards set by Imagine Canada and individual members of our fund development team subscribe to the Association of Fundraising Professionals' Code of Ethical Standards.

Our promise to you.

Victoria Hospice's Fund Development Staff work to meet current needs and create a stable financial future for Hospice. We are grateful to every donor for helping Victoria Hospice provide exceptional care for our families, friends and neighbours. We respect your privacy. We do not lend or sell any of your personal information. You have our word.
