General Donations

Each year, Lighthouse supports over 300 children, youth and their families as they navigate their grief after the life-altering loss of a parent or sibling. Your donation will fund our free grief support groups that will allow our participants to hope for a brighter future.  

Memorial Donation

Your gift in memory of a loved one or to honour someone special, is also making a significant impact on the lives of children, youth and their families who look to Lighthouse for support. 

Gift of Securities

Donating publicly traded stocks and securities is a tax-smart way to support Lighthouse. Donating securities directly avoids tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.  

You will also receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stocks or securities, and the transfer is fast and easy. 

To submit your gift, please fill out the following form. We will send you confirmation of your donation when the transfer is complete. 

Legacy Giving

Your legacy is one of the most impactful decisions in your lifetime, a chance to ensure your values are carried into the future. Your legacy gift is a planned donation where your generosity benefits generations to come and may provide you with substantial tax and estate planning benefits. It can be made through your will or any other form of designation of various assets to create hope for children and youth for a brighter future. 

Ways to create your legacy:

  • Include a legacy gift in your Will
  • Name ‘The Lighthouse for Grieving Children’ as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF, Pension or TSA
  • Name ‘The Lighthouse for Grieving Children’ as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy


Note: Always seek professional legal and tax advice when drafting or revising your Will.

If you have any questions or would like to talk about options for giving a gift, please reach out to Anne Smith at  

If you have already made a legacy gift, please let us know. We would like to thank you and show our deep appreciation for your generosity.
