How to direct donations in memory of your loved one:

Your funeral director can help you with this. The WDHF has relationships with funeral homes throughout Southern Grey Bruce Counties and we work together to support you during this difficult time. All you need to do is inform your funeral home that you wish to have donations to the WDHF in lieu of flowers and they will do the rest.

All individuals remembered in this way will be listed on our Virtual In-Memoriam Wall displayed by fiscal year for the past two years.  When donations total more than $1,000, the loved one is memorialized on our new in memory giving piece. The in memory giving piece is located in the lobby by the Foundation Office.


Memorial donations are a meaningful way to pay tribute to a loved one, friend or colleague who has passed. When you make a memorial donation to the Walkerton & District Hospital Foundation you honour a special life by helping to improve the lives of others in our communities in supporting the work of the hospital. Memorial gifts are accepted at funeral homes in Walkerton and area, online, or at the Foundation office. 

At your request, a card is promptly sent to the to the honouree’s next of kin in acknowledgement of your special gift (the amount of your donation will be kept strictly confidential). When sending a memorial donation, please include the name of the honouree, as well as the name and address of the next of kin.

Thank you for choosing to honour the memory of your loved one by supporting WDHF.
