You can create a Giving Page for any occasion such as a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, memorial, sporting event, or even no event at all.
Once you have created your GivingPage, email your friends, family and supporters a link to your page asking them to donate.

Memorial Donations

A memorial donation to the GADA is a thoughtful way to remember the loss of a friend or family member. GADA will acknowledge your gift by sending a card to the person you designate as well as listing the donation in the next issue of our Newslink. Another way of giving is by ordering a quantity of specifically designed cards to be placed in the funeral home.

Honorarium Donations

An honorarium donation is a great way to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, marriage, anniversary, or simply to say thank you to someone for a special act. Honor someone special today and we will let them know of your gift by having a card sent to him or her.

Corporate Support

There are several opportunities for companies to support the GADA. Companies can sponsor our Annual Conferences or fundraisers, donate to the Annual Christmas Campaign, match employee donations through a Matching Gift Program therefore doubling the donation to the GADA, or become a Corporate Member. Ask your employer if they would like to designate GADA Canada as their Charity of Choice.  We will show our appreciation by adding the companies name and logo in our Newslinks and on our website.
