Make a Tribute Gift

Making a tribute gift to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is a meaningful way to show how much you care, while also helping those touched by cancer in our community. Your gift will have an immediate and significant impact and you will have the opportunity to provide us with information to notify someone special of your thoughtful gift.

Gifts in Honour

Honour a special person, achievement or occasion by making a gift in someone’s name. By making a donation to celebrate life’s milestones, you will ensure that cancer patients in our community will get to experience their own milestones. Whether providing access to innovative research or clinical trials, or giving cancer patients and their families access to Cancer Coaching, your gift will change lives.

Gifts in Memory

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to leave a legacy in his or her name – and your gift will provide hope and support to families affected by cancer in Eastern Ontario. There is no better way to celebrate a life well lived than by making sure cancer patients in our community have access to the support they need.
