Ways to Give

Because you give, we are able to.

To support and promote compassionate care for individuals and their loved ones who need palliative and end-of-life care.

Donations to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County are accepted in a variety of ways. Through your donations, we are able to help palliative care patients live well.

General Donation

Your donations are felt by every patient and family member who relies on the palliative care service. Whether providing a warm cup of tea to a worried daughter or soothing a patient’s mind through music therapy, we are so grateful for your generosity.


At any given time, there are more than 215 patients in the Palliative Care Service in Cape Breton County. We rely on ongoing donor support from the community to fund the unique healthcare, personal, social, emotional and spiritual needs of these patients and their families.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Making a gift in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a special milestone, like an anniversary, is a meaningful way to support the palliative care service.


Our Society will send a special card to let that person or family know that a donation was made on their behalf.


Memorial cards are available through the Hospice Palliative Care Office or at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. They are also found at all funeral homes in Cape Breton County, and can be mailed out on request.


Special Recognition Cards for birthdays, weddings, etc… are also available at the Hospice Palliative Care Society Office.
