What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a global movement rooted in generosity and philanthropy. Across the world, individuals and businesses rally together to make a meaningful impact on countless charities and the invaluable work they do. This year, giving Tuesday is on Tuesday November 30th.
How does YOUR Gift Make a Difference?
Each donation received by the Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre goes directly to improving the programs and services offered to those affected by cancer within our community. The financial report we receive helps us to offer individual and group programming, educational resources, assistance with certain treatment-related costs, and maintaining our Home for Hope, where all those affected by cancer in our community can have a place to feel welcome, supported, and understood.
Did You Know… a recurring donation of as little as $50 each month can help us to provide up to a full year of some of our group support programs?
Your gift is worth more than you may realize!
Some of our programs carry materials costs to ensure our facilitators and members have what they need to receive all of the therapeutic benefits of taking part. In many cases, one of the outcomes of these programs is the creation of beautiful handmade items, which are later sold by businesses in our community for additional fundraising revenue for the centre. In the end, your donation is an investment with us that continues to grow and provide further resources in the future.
How can you contribute to local cancer support?
Your contribution means the world to our community. Cancer does not discriminate. It has the ability to derail life plans, impact relationships, take away the ability to maintain employment, and take away an individual’s financial independence. Services in rural communities such as ours are limited in comparison to larger cities, and we believe someone with cancer should not have to choose between living in the beautiful Georgian Bay area and receiving the support they need during their cancer journey.
Your one-time, or recurring gift ensures that we can continue to provide local support to those affected by cancer in the Southern Georgian Bay area.
Each one-time gift we receive plays an important part in offering local cancer support!
Your recurring weekly or monthly gift helps us to provide consistent, ongoing, and predictable support to those who need it
