Meet Our Donors

Thank You

Each and every gift is gratefully received and acknowledged. The Foundation recognizes that your donation is made only after careful consideration. We are committed to act as responsible stewards of your gift and to ensure the appropriate level of recognition of your generosity.

Donor Recognition Wall

Both a work of art in its own right, and a unique, made-in-Almonte tribute to our most generous supporters, the Donor Wall permanently lists in the front lobby of Almonte General Hospital all donors who have contributed a total of $2,500 or more.

Our donor recognition system was created by renowned glass artist and Almonte resident Stephen Brathwaite, and sculptor Dale Dunning.
