Why is monthly giving beneficial?
We just launched our monthly giving program at Huron Shores Hospice and this seems like the perfect time to talk about the benefits of monthly giving.
Benefit for the Donor
As a monthly donor you get to make smaller, more manageable reoccurring gifts, which have a huge impact over time. Monthly giving is convenient. Once set up, monthly credit card payments will continue until you decide to upgrade or downgrade your donation. You can choose a level of donation that makes sense for you. Canada Helps sends you one tax receipt at the end of the year for your monthly donations.
Benefit for Huron Shores Hospice
Your monthly gift will allow us to count on regular dollars coming in, making it easier for us to plan programs, create budgets and expand our services. If the last year has taught us anything it is that we need to diversify our income stream. We learned not to reply so heavily on fundraisers, because well – a pandemic can happen and your fundraising events all have to change dynamically.
Having a steady, predictable source of income through monthly giving will put us on solid ground to sustain the hospice. We will have more time to spend on person-centred care for our residents and their families, when we can avoid the peaks and valleys of revenue.
Different levels of giving offered in our donation form
We can make sure we are creating moments that matter for our residents with your monthly gift. Here is how your dollars could help:
$5 buys much loved snacks and beverages for our resident.
$15 buys Netflix entertainment for our resident and her or his family.
$25 buys one hour of compassionate and professional overnight care for the resident, allowing family to sleep.
$55 buys one full day of care in each year. You can pick a significant day for you – birthday, anniversary or special day in memory of a loved one. We will dedicate that day of care to you or your loved one by posting a notice on the hospice suite door. ‘This day of excellent care is dedicated to (your name or your loved one’s name.) We thank (name) for their wonderful support of our community hospice.’
Or you can pick a monthly gift that makes sense to you and your budget!
