Every donation – whatever the amount – helps us Make Moments Matter for residents and families at a difficult time. Although we do receive some government funding, over 50% of our operating budget needs to be raised through the kindness of our generous donors. Your donations help ensure we can continue our compassionate end-of-life care and bereavement support in our community, and we thank you.

"When we lose someone we love, we must learn not to live without them, but with the love they leave behind.”

in memory

Your donation In Memory of a loved one who spent their final days at Lisaard House or
Innisfree House can be a one-time contribution, or done on
a monthly basis.


A gift of $2500 funds a day of care in each of our Houses, and your loved one will be
honoured on our Fund a Day Board. Please submit a picture of your loved one here.


To maintain the exceptional level of care we are known for in the Region of Waterloo, we need to raise nearly $2 million annually. All donations go directly to care for our residents and their families.
