Losing someone you love is always difficult --
A very special way to pay tribute to a family member, friend, or co-worker is through a memorial donation to MDSC.
A tribute fund, arranged through the funeral director, will enable others to support your wish to help the MDSC. When we receive your memorial donation:
- a condolence card will be sent to the family
- all donors will receive a letter of thanks along with a tax-receipt acknowledging their support
- you will also receive a list of donors (amounts remain confidential) that will allow you to send your own thank you note in addition to our recognition
Donations can be made anonymously - or we can speak with you about how we could make an appropriate public tribute to the deceased.
If you would like to support the work we do, you can donate in three ways:
Online: If you would like to provide a general donation to MDSC online, simply click on the CanadaHelps image below and follow the instructions carefully.
Cheque: If you prefer to send a cheque, address it to:
The Mood Disorders Society of Canada
Suite 736, 3-304 Stone Road West
Guelph, ON, N1G 4W4
Feel free to call us at 1 519 824-5565 for further information.
The Mood Disorders Society of Canada is a member of Imagine Canada and voluntarily conforms to the Ethical Financial and Reporting Code to ensure that you will have complete confidence in MDSC’s management and reporting of our donations program.
