Many organizations now provide ways for their employees to actively support their community through charitable giving programs. These opportunties come in many forms from hosting a fundraising event, offering matching gift programs and recognizing volunteer time away from the workplace.
Employee volunteer programs offer many benefits to companies, employees and the community. Imagine Canada, a national organization that promotes public and corporate giving, volunteering and support for the community, has many great tips on how you can get involved. Check out their web site here.
If you are interested in hosting an event for the Hospice, please feel free to contact a member of the Resource Development team at (416) 626-0116 for assistance and advice. You can also download a copy of our fundraising guidelines to help get you started.
The United Way is a very popular and simple way for employees to contribute to charities in their community. Although the Hospice is not a United Way agency, you can still designate your United Way contribution to the Hospice. When you make your donation, just indicate that you would like your gift to go to The Dorothy Ley Hospice and use the charity number 130193394-RR0001.
