In Memoriam Gifts

For many, the most meaningful way to honour the life of a relative, friend, or colleague is through a heartfelt contribution to the place that played a special role in that person's life.

When you make a memorial donation to the Perley Rideau Foundation, you honour a special life by ensuring excellent resident care is available to the Seniors and Veterans who call the Perley Rideau home.

How to direct donations in memory of your loved one

Your funeral director can help you with this. All you need to do is inform your funeral home that you wish to have donations to the Perley Rideau Foundation in lieu of flowers and they will do the rest.
