Yes. Named endowment funds can be established during a donor’s lifetime and can be funded in part or completely through future giving. These endowments are considered gifts in perpetuity, and it’s possible for your family to continue contributing to, and receiving updates about, these funds. SickKids acknowledges cumulative lifetime and future gifts for the recognition, which can include naming, an inscription on our Donor Wall, and other forms of recognition.
Gifts in kind to SickKids Foundation can help to raise funds through prize draws, live and silent auctions, SickKids auctions on eBay, and in many other ways. Beneficial items for fundraising purposes include electronics, new teddy bears, toys and games, sporting event or concert tickets, gift certificates, and SickKids-branded materials. Read our Gift in kind Guidelines for more information.
