Frequently Asked Questions
When and how will my monthly donations come out?
Your monthly donation will be processed on or around the 15th of each month.
As a monthly donor, you will receive one consolidated charitable tax receipt at year-end for your years’ total, helping us save on administration and postage.

Where are the funds allocated?
Lakeridge requests our Foundation’s help for medical equipment large and small, as well as compassion care and patient and staff safety aids for Lakeridge Port Perry each year. With donations such as those given through monthly contributions, we can say yes to helping with these high priorities that ensure best care at Port Perry.
What types of equipment are needed?
The type of equipment needed varies year over year. Recently we’ve been able to support a state-of-the-art portable Sonosite Ultrasound Machine for both the surgical program and the emergency department, new baby bassinets for the New Life Center, an updated piece of eye care equipment for Emergency, among other items. With support like yours, important equipment like this is available, helping our medical team when caring for patients every day.
How does the Foundation determine what is the highest priority and which pieces of equipment are to be purchased?
We work closely with Lakeridge Health through an exhaustive process to confirm which equipment at Port Perry is the highest priority, much of which is possible only with Foundation support. On occasion, medical items and projects come up outside of this process that the hospital needs our help with. Monthly donations also help to ensure we have available funds for those urgent requests.
Why give monthly?
It is an easy, effective way to donate. Our monthly donors tell us that by building it into their monthly budget, they can give more generously than if they gave once per year. They feel a strong connection and pride in being a monthly supporter of their hospital, knowing the difference they make.
