HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE WILLOW FOUNDATION?
The Willow Foundation is a non-profit, registered charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Funds are raised through community initiatives as well as donations from individuals, service clubs, community organizations and businesses to further enrich the quality of life for seniors and disabled adults in the Halton Region’s three long term care homes. These include Allendale in Milton, Creek Way Village in Burlington and Post Inn Village in Oakville, as well as the Adult Day Programs in Milton and Georgetown. Through the kindness and generosity of our donors, The Willow Foundation is able to provide financial support for annual life enriching social events, education, equipment, special needs and various building projects. We offer a number of opportunities to support The Willow Foundation including:
Annual Fundraising Events
Our annual fundraising events include our Charity Golf Challenge and our Spirit of Giving Campaign during the Christmas season. We are also very thankful to benefit from third party fund raising events that take place in the community where funds raised are donated to The Willow Foundation. These events not only raise funds to assist The Willow Foundation, they also provide an opportunity to involve family members and others within the community in a meaningful way. We welcome suggestions with respect to hosting, participating in, sponsoring, or donating to an event.
Annual donations are vital to The Willow Foundation and provide the majority of our funds.
In Memorium Giving
In Memorium gifts to The Willow Foundation make a tremendous difference in the lives of many seniors and disabled adults in the Halton Region. A memorial card is sent to the next of kin to acknowledge the In Memorium gift.
We continue to expand our planned giving donor base through the generosity of those who donate on a continued basis. Planned giving allows a donor to make a substantial gift and at the same time provide valuable tax benefits. Methods of planned giving include pre-authorized giving programs and charitable bequests.
