Through monthly giving, you have the opportunity to make a lasting commitment to the GWM site of the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital through a manageable monthly donation which adds up to a significant contribution over the year!  Your monthly contributions let us know in advance what support we can count on throughout the year, and are important to helping us plan and budget for future funding needs.  Best of all, it’s easy and convenient!  There are two payment options:  you can use your credit card or set up withdrawals from your chequing account for monthly donations.  Please join our monthly giving club.

10. Why do you need to fund raise? Doesn’t the government pay for health care?
While the government provides most of the day-to-day costs of running the hospital, there are never enough funds available for equipment.  Last year, almost 1/3 of the equipment purchased by the Hospital was funded through donations.

It is only through the combination of public funds and community donations that our hospital will continue to be well-equipped to serve you, your family and your friends when you need it most.
