DONATING TO RNFOO
RNFOO depends on donations to enable us to offer our various Awards and Scholarship Programs. Contributions can be made by calling our office (number below), by mailing a cheque (address below) or on-line through the "Canada Helps" link below, or elsewhere on this website. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations.
The RNFOO TRIBUTE FUND
Honorific Donations: RNFOO gratefully receives donations given to honour an individual on a special occasion such as retirement, graduation, or other achievement. We are happy to facilitate this kind of donation by providing information and/or materials that can be made available for gatherings, published in newsletters, or distributed with invitations. Honorific donations are collected in the Tribute Fund, which funds the RNFOO Tribute Scholarship described below.
Memorial Donations: Many donations are made in memory of individuals who have had significant connection to the nursing profession. We are happy to facilitate this kind of donation by providing information and/or materials that can be made available through funeral homes, and/or circulated among friends and family of the deceased. Memorial donations are collected in the Tribute Fund, which funds the RNFOO Tribute Scholarship described below.
The RNFOO TRIBUTE SCHOLARSHIP
The RNFOO Tribute Scholarship is made available through donations received to honour or in memory of individuals over the prior year. The Scholarship is open to nursing students (PN and BScN programs) who have completed at least 50% of the program in which they are registered, who demonstrate excellence in clinical nursing care, and who describe a strong commitment to their future professional goals.
Any kind of special donation can be made by credit card through the ‘Donate now’ link on this website. Organizers of these special collections should contact the RNFOO office so that the designation can be listed for all donors to see.
Alternatively, cheques can be sent to the RNFOO office (address below), or donors can call the office during regular business hours to process credit card donations by phone. Income tax receipts will be issued for all donations received, and wherever possible, the person being honored, or the family of the person being remembered, will be notified of the gift.
Those honoured through these tribute gifts will be listed in our Recognition Gallery.
