A Small Donation Makes a Huge Difference

As a registered charity, RNFOO depends on donations to enable us to provide support to nurses and nursing students, and to manage the programs that allow us to distribute the awards fairly and in keeping with the wishes of the donors.

NEW: Family, friends and colleagues are invited to support the Dr. Vanessa Burkoski award, established in her honour. During the last weeks of her life, Vanessa‚Äôs family and representatives from RNAO determined that a scholarship would be established through RNFOO to remember Vanessa and her contributions to the nursing in Ontario. 

Other ways to donate

Donations may also be made by funds transfer directed to finance@RNFOO.org, or by mailing a cheque to RNFOO, 4261 Highway 7 East, Suite A14-364, Markham, ON L3R 9W6.

Leaving a Bequest

Donating through your Will, often means a donor can make a donation far more substantial than they ever could during their lifetime. RNFOO can be designated to receive a specific donation from your estate, or you can name RNFOO as a benefactor of a portion of the residue of your Estate (what remains after taxes, administrative expenses and distribution of specific gifts). 

Donating Securities

RNFOO is able to receive donations of securities. Contact the office for information on how to process this type of donation.

Sponsoring a Scholarship

Donors wishing to fund a named scholarship, perhaps in memory of someone, or to draw attention to a specific area of nursing, are encouraged to contact the Foundation office to review possibilities.
