Ways to Give

The Olde Forge is funded in part by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network and the City of Ottawa but we must also fundraise to cover our operating expenses. We depend on the generosity of individuals and local businesses and organizations to continue to provide quality services.

The Many Ways to Give

Individual Donations

Individual giving is always welcome and very much appreciated! What better reason to give than “just because we love what you do!”

Tribute Donations

Making a donation to honour a loved one or for a special occasion (birthdays, anniversaries, retirements etc.) is a meaningful way to show your support. If you would like for us to send a special note acknowledging the occasion, please indicate the intent of the donation and any other pertinent information.

Memorial Donations

A donation to honour the memory of a loved one can be a special gift to celebrate someone’s life. If you would like for us to send a special note acknowledging the gift, please indicate any instructions or pertinent information (such as a special message, name of recipient and mailing address) that you would like us to include.

Become a Monthly Donor

When you sign up to be a monthly donor, your gift goes to support the many programs and services provided by the Olde Forge. Your ongoing support when becoming a monthly donor has an impact year-round helping to ensure the Olde Forge is able to support those that might need our services the most.

Legacy Giving

Your gift, no matter the size, will help us continue to provide support services and programs for seniors and adults with disabilities empowering them to maintain their independence and age with choice. Legacy gifts can be made in the form of a lump-sum amount, a percentage of your estate or a special item of property.
