Ways of Giving

Thank you!

Without prevention, hearing loss will have an increasing impact on the health and well-being of Canadians of all ages, putting a burden on our health care system and significantly affecting individual quality of life.

Through your donation, you are working towards reversing that trend, and ensuring healthy hearing for all Canadians.

We are living in a noisy world, but you are part of the solution.

Host an Event

Help provide much needed support for medical research in the auditory sciences and educating the Canadian public about hearing loss and prevention by hosting an event to raise funds for THFC! Develop your own fundraising event – it’s easy to do!

You create the event. It can be anything – a sporting event, a dance or entertainment night, a bowling or golf tournament, even a dinner for your friends and family!

Over the years, many generous groups, businesses, and people make THFC the recipient of funds collected at their event. These funds can be partial or whole proceeds from ticket sales, donation jars, coat checks, raffles, or any number of creative ideas!

It is important that you let us know what you are planning. We can help you with ideas too. Once you have decided on the event, we will promote your event on our social media: Facebook and Twitter!

Proceeds from your event can be mailed in or delivered to THFC offices during office hours (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 4p.m E.S.T)

If you have any questions about submitting the proceeds from your event, please contact Lindsay Thibault or call 416-364-4060.

Stocks & Securities

A donation of publicly traded securities is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support THFC. Under rules set out in the 2006 federal budget, you may give stocks, bonds, futures and options, as well as shares in mutual funds and you will pay no tax on the capital gain. This greatly reduces the out-of-pocket expense of making such a donation.
