Donating to NYGH In Celebration of a wedding, birthday, anniversary, festive occasion is a wonderful way to add meaning to a special day. By asking your family and friends to donate instead of buying a present is truly a gift that keeps on giving. 

In Celebration donations can also be made to the Foundation in lieu of host gifts or traditional gifts such as a birthday and holiday presents. We can provide you with a note card as a way of acknowledging your generous contribution on behalf of your friends or family to NYGH. 

Please contact Kristina Cundari at: 416-756-6802 or Kristina.Cundari@nygh.on.ca to learn more of our In Celebration opportunities to give a gift that will go beyond care.
