Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why Give? I work here. Doesn't that count as giving?

A: Your work is critical to the ongoing success of Windsor Regional Hospital, but we all know that health care costs are escalating faster than funding. The only way to guarantee that we continue to offer the most advanced, innovative and prgressive care, is with fundraising initiatives. And this is the donation that gives back every time someone needs our hospital.

Q: What is the deadline for making a gift?

A: You can contribute any time of the year, however to be included in the campaign total and be eligible for prizes your gift must be received by December 4, 2015.

Q: Where does my donation go?

A: The money stays here at Windsor Regional Hospital to benefit your hospital in your community.

Q: Is this the same as the United Way campaign?

A: No, they are separate. The United Way raises money for thousands of non-profit organizations worldwide, whereas the Windsor Regional Hospital Family campaign specifically funds programs and services for the hospital.

Q: How does payroll deduction work?

A: Funds are taken from your paycheque during the course of the year. If you give just $5.77 per pay (only 41 cents/day) your total gift for the year accumulates to $150. In addition your gift is tax-deductible. You can stop or change your deduction any time. Changes are implemented the month following your request.

Q: I can't afford to give much.

A: Every single donation is important, no matter how large or small. Every dollar raised will support the hospital.
