Sacred Heart Mission is grateful for the opportunity to honour individuals through memorial gifts. For family and friends, these gifts can be an especially meaningful way to commemorate a loved one, while also sharing in Sacred Heart Mission’s vision of an inclusive, fair and compassionate community and making a lasting impact.

Upon receipt of a memorial gift, Sacred Heart Mission sends the donor a note of appreciation and tax receipt. Sacred Heart Mission is able to report the names and addresses of all donors to a designated family member or friend, should that individual wish also to acknowledge gifts that have been received.
