How to make a donation

There are two options:

  • You can make a donation to the challenge as a whole to support the HGH Foundation’s There’s No Place Like Home campaign; or
  • You can support a participant by making a donation; your contribution will still go towards the Foundation’s fundraising campaign, but you will also help that participant have a chance of winning a prize and encourage them in their endeavor to complete the challenge.

To donate to the challenge as a whole, simply visit the official challenge website. Then click on the Make a donation towards the Holiday Challenge button.

To donate to a participant, visit that participant’s profile on the official challenge website, under Challenge Participants, and click on the Support this participant button. If you prefer, you can also give your contact information and your cash or cheque donation directly to the participant, and they can enter it in the platform.

All donations will go directly to support the HGH Foundation, and you will get a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation.

How will this challenge help my hospital?

The profits will be directed towards the HGH Foundation’s current campaign, There’s No Place Like Home. Your support towards this campaign will help bring new programs and continue to help expand services at HGH. The campaign’s focus is on enhancing services in orthopedic surgery, urology, ophthalmology, endoscopy, and advanced mammography. This will enable access to more specialty care, closer to home. Your support will help ensure that new medical equipment is available to meet the healthcare needs of our growing region and make the most of the recent redevelopment and expansion at HGH.
