Recognizing our Donors

The Port Perry Hospital Foundation honours those who donate to the hospital in two special ways.

The Arbour

In the front lobby of Lakeridge Health Port Perry three tall glass pillars form the Arbour where supporters of the Hospital are recognized.

Each time you give a charitable donation to the Foundation, with the exception of Garden of Memories gifts, it is added to your previous donations. When the total reaches a specific level the person, business or organization that has been so generous will have their name etched onto a glass plate that is installed on the Arbour. As your gifts continue to accumulate, you will eventually reach the amount required for recognition at the next level, and we then install a new plate to reflect that category.

A gift in any of these categories entitles the donor to recognition on the Arbour.

  • Builder – $5,000 to $9,999
  • Fellow – $10,000 to $24,999
  • Benefactor – $25,000 to $49,999
  • Patron – $50,000 to $99,999
  • Visionary – $100,000 to $499,999
  • Founder – $500,000 or more

The Garden Wall

The Garden of Memories is a growing commemorative project. Located outside the main hospital entrance, the Garden is a retreat where patients and their families may enjoy the outdoors. A handcrafted dragonfly, representing courage and strength, adorns the Garden Wall and is the common thread that weaves this website together.

When you make a one-time donation of $2,500 to the Garden of Memories program, your gift helps support the ongoing costs of maintaining the Garden. An etched glass plate is attached to the Garden Wall in the vestibule area of the main lobby to acknowledge your generosity. A gift to the Garden of Memories program can be made in memory of someone, to celebrate a special occasion, or to support the program.

The Port Perry Hospital Foundation holds a private recognition ceremony periodically, (depending on the number of plates to be installed), in honour of supporters that have been added to the Arbour or the Garden Wall.
