Ways to give

St. Raphael’s is a grassroots charitable organization two-thirds of whose funding comes from private donations by companies and individuals who, like you, care about providing those living with an incurable illness with an end-of-life filled with compassion and dignity.

When the community takes charge

Palliative care is offered free of charge. Its cost is funded by both private donations and a public contribution in the form of grants and tax credits.

The Ministry of Health and Social Services not only increased its financial contribution for palliative care beds in Quebec in 2018, thus covering 33% of the annual costs of patient care, but also decided to help fund the operations of the very first palliative day centre on the Island of Montreal by making a grant of $500,000 for the first year of operations.

Although the provincial government contributes to the financing of St. Raphael’s, operation of St. Raphael’s as well as the quality and sustainability of the care and services offered are possible thanks to a significant contribution coming mainly from the community.
