The GBGH Team Giving Circle is a year-round charitable giving program supported by a community of dedicated Georgian Bay General Hospital staff, credentialed staff, and volunteers.
Every day, hundreds of people depend on Georgian Bay General Hospital for care. Together, we strive to make a difference by giving back to the programs, people, and services at our hospital, and in our community.
Donations made through the GBGH Team Giving Circle fund the critical equipment and infrastructure that we need to provide exceptional care to our patients at Georgian Bay General Hospital.
Charitable giving happens all year long! Here are some ways to get involved:
Consider signing up for payroll deductions, or monthly giving by credit card. Small amounts on a regular basis have a big impact! For example, $5 per pay = $130 each year. $10 per pay = $260 each year. If every team member at GBGH pledged just $5/pay, we could contribute $91,000 annually!
Fill out the pledge form online and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by printing, signing and returning to the Foundation office (or drop off at GBGH reception). For Payroll deduction, please also send to GBGHemail@example.com (must come from your GBGH email address).
Together, let’s make a difference at our hospital. Join us for GBGH Team Giving Celebration Week, each year in February!
A member of the Foundation will explain to your team how they can make a difference in our Hospital through charitable giving. Simply contact Victoria Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your information session!
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What’s the difference between the GBGH Team Giving Circle & the 50/50?
While both programs support the Foundation (and can be paid using payroll deduction), you receive a charitable tax receipt when you donate through the Team Giving Circle. As a member of the Team Giving Circle, you also receive recognition in the hospital.
2. Can I be part of both the Team Giving Circle and the 50/50?
All staff of GBGH can choose to take part in both programs. At this time, the 50/50 is only available through payroll deduction, but Team Giving donations can be done by cash, cheque, credit card or pre-authorized payment (contact Victoria Evans – email@example.com for this option).
3. How do I transfer my current 50/50 deduction to the Team Giving Circle?
Simply fill out the Team Giving Circle pledge form, and indicate in the payroll deduction section that you would no longer like to be part of the 50/50 program.
4. Can I choose how my donation is designated?
You can choose to have your gift support the Impact Fund (area of greatest need), Equipment, or Education & Wellness at GBGH.
5. When I sign up for a bi-weekly or monthly pledge, how long will my deductions continue for?
Your deductions will continue until you provide notice to the Foundation that you would like to cancel your contributions.
