Making a Donation (with COVID precautions in place)

We encourage donors to make a donation using a credit card through our website or over the phone by calling 519-354-3113 ext. 2403.
You can also mail a cheque (payable to Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation) to: 34 Wellington Street East, Chatham, Ontario, N7M 3N7
We are accepting donations at Chatham-Kent Hospice 7 days a week between 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. We ask that you put your donation in an envelope with your name, address and phone number on it. When you arrive at Hospice, the reception volunteer would be happy to take your donation. If you would like to speak directly with Foundation staff, please ask the volunteer to give us a call.

Your Donations Make a Difference

Between April 1st, 2021 and March 30th, 2022.


Family time in the Hospice courtyard gilled with sun and peace

"It started with being able to park our cars near the entrance to the hospice without a parking meter or time limitation in site. Upon entry, we were warmly greeted by a  receptionist who completed our  COVID-19 testing in the gentlest of ways. She also encouraged us to try a bowl of homemade soup made fresh every day by volunteers and at no cost to visitors. As we stepped further into the building, we were awed by its beauty. It was light-filled with a central courtyard and a feeling of being more a home than any type of care facility."


What Your Donations Are Used For:

The chart below gives you an idea of the other expenses we must cover from fundraising revenue.

  • Compassionate Care

    Resident care is our top priority. Your donation will help cover the cost of things like personal care products, medical equipment and supplies.

  • Connected and Comfortable

    Your donation will help keep our residents and their families comfortable and connected by covering the cost of utilities such as natural gas, electricity, water, cable and telephone.

  • Home-like hospitality
    Making our residents and their families feel at home is a top priority. Your donation will help pay for groceries as well as kitchen equipment and supplies.
  • Education and Awareness
    Ongoing education and awareness will ensure the sustainability of our residential hospice. Your donation will support ongoing staff & volunteer education and training, community education and efficient donation management.
  • Business as usual
    Although we want our hospice to feel like home to our residents, we must operate as a business. Your donation will cover costs associated with running a business such as accounting, human resources, purchasing, office equipment and supplies and insurance.
  • Keeping House
    Like your home, we want to keep a safe and tidy home. Your donation will help us do that by covering costs for laundry & housekeeping, ongoing maintenance, safety and security.
