In Memoriam Program

The Western Memorial Regional Hospital Foundation's In Memoriam program has been designed to assist families during their time of sorrow. Memorial tributes create a lasting memory for loved ones and help ensure the best possible medical care for others when they need it.

Planned Giving/Legacy Giving

Most people would like to be remembered for contributing to their community. It is possible to arrange your financial affairs so that you can take care of the needs of your family as well as make a lasting contribution to the Western Regional Hospital Foundation. Planned Giving is a creative approach to charitable giving that benefits you, as well as the Foundation.

Staff Deductions

All staff of Western Health is encouraged to support the Western Regional Hospital Foundation. One way that support is often given is through staff deductions. All donations are tax-deductible.

Volunteer Recruitment Program

The Volunteer Recruitment Program, started in 1995, and has been a very positive addition to the Foundation’s strategies. The establishment of volunteer committees in the smaller communities in our region has provided a method of communication with the people in those communities.

In addition, these groups coordinate fundraising activities in support of the Foundation. A prime example is the Tree of Memories Ceremony held in December. This event allows individuals to honor and remember loved ones during the important holiday season. The Tree of Memories started in Corner Brook, but has since taken off and is now being held in Corner Brook, Deer Lake, Hampden, Jackson’s Arm, Ramea, Trout River and Pasadena.
