Memorial & Tribute Giving

Memorial/Tribute giving is an important way to honour a loved one by doing something meaningful in their honour. When you give to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital in memory of a loved one, you are strengthening healthcare for others in Cape Breton.

You can make gifts in memory in a few ways: 

In Memory

Making a gift in memory of a friend or loved one is a meaningful way to celebrate their life, while making a difference for all Cape Bretoners. You can make a donation online, by phone, cheque, by picking up a donation package at one of many funeral homes in Cape Breton or by visiting us at the Foundation office on the main floor of the Cape Breton Regional. 

When you make a memorial gift, we will send a card to their family to inform them of your gift. Memorial donation cards are available by contacting us at (902) 567-7752 or by emailing 

We can send a supply of cards to keep at home for your convenience. 

In Honour

Whether celebrating the gift of life or love, why not make a donation in-honour of a person or occasion?

Making an in-honour gift is a touching way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, holiday or wedding. With every gift you make, you impact the health of Cape Bretoners.

Sid's story of giving back 

An image"I give monthly and I do it in memory of Joan." 

Sid Hardy lost his wife, Joan Hardy, 12 years ago. A beautiful life was cut short because of cancer. 

Sid sat down to tell us about Joan and her giving spirit that lives on. "I feel her with me every day," Sid smiles with tearful eyes." She was an amazing mother and an incredible nurse." 

Joan always gave back and after she passed away Sid continued to give in her memory. "I give every month," Sid says, proud of honouring his wife. "I wanted to put a memorial in the newspaper every year to honour her, but my daughter, Jennifer, suggested we give back to the foundation instead." 

Not only does Sid give back monthly, but he honours other family and friends with gifts to the hospital foundation. "Why would I buy a sympathy card when I can make a donation and the foundation will send a card for me?" Sid points out. Instead of flowers, sympathy cards or gift baskets, Sid simply calls the Foundation and we do the rest.
