Memorial Gifts

Celebrate Light & Love Tree Lighting

To honour and remember your loved ones, please donate to our Celebrate Light & Love holiday campaign, and join us for our beautiful Tree Lighting Ceremony. All those remembered are honoured and their names read aloud at the Tree Lighting. Last year, this very touching event raised $160,000, with over 360 individuals honoured.

This year, our tree lighting ceremony and reception will take place on Thursday, December 13 at Bethell Hospice. To accommodate the large crowd expected, we will be gathering in the Inglewood Community Centre at 7:00 p.m. and walking down the path to Bethell Hospice for the Tree Lighting Ceremony at 7:15 p.m. Please dress for the weather, as this is an outdoor event.

Help us fill the sky with Light & Love again this year.

Light & Love gifts are accepted annually from October to early January.  At any time of year, you may also choose to make a memorial gift in one of the following ways:


In Lieu of Flowers

A donation to Bethell Hospice in memory of a family member, friend or colleague is a meaningful and lasting way to show your support. Memorial donations may be made online or by calling the Fundraising Office at 905-838-3534. Families will be notified of your gift, and you may also choose to send an eCard directly to the family. All gifts of $20 or more are fully tax receiptable.

Select a Memorial Tree

A limited number of trees already planted on the grounds of Bethell Hospice are available for memorial tributes. A tax receipt will be provided to the donor, and a tribute plaque erected by the tree of your choice. To purchase a tree, please email Jeannette Vanden Heuvel at foundation@bethellhospice.org, or call Jeannette at 905-838-3534, extension 2251.

Monthly Giving through Friends of the Foundation

Friends of the Bethell Hospice Foundation divide their yearly giving into twelve equal installments. Monthly donations ensure a steady stream of funding at all times of the year, ensuring that all programs and services are continually available at no cost to residents, program participants or their families. Monthly donors also appreciate the option of dividing gifts into twelve equal payments, minimizing impact on cash flow. Monthly gifts may be established in any denomination, may be made by credit card or pre-authorized cheques, and may be designated as a memorial tribute. One consolidated tax receipt for the total donation amount is issued at the beginning of the following calendar year. To become a monthly donor, select ‘Monthly Repeating Donation‘ or contact Barbara Van Vliet at 905-838-3534, extension 2248.
