Cancer is a struggle in so many ways—emotionally, mentally, physically, financially. By donating, you help ease some of these challenges. In the house, women often find comfort, camaraderie and inner strength during a time they need it more than ever. Be part of that journey: support in a way that suits you.
Unexpected kindness—it’s one of the most powerful tools we have. Supporting a woman battling cancer can be quite literally life-changing. Here’s how you can give.
A monthly gift provides a steady source of funding for the Compassion House Foundation, so we can more easily forecast much-needed initiatives over the year. Your consistent generosity gives us an advantage of planning, putting money into the house costs, as well as for the support systems we have in place for women once they go back home.
No matter how big or small, your one-time gift is directly channeled into supporting the women we serve. The form is simple and secure, and if you donate $25 or more, you’ll receive a tax receipt.
Gift in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, describe when goods themselves are given. These gifts can stock the house, help our workshops and programs, and include service donations too. If you’re interested in how you can donate in-kind, please let us know.
For several years now, we have been thrilled and honoured to offer Compassion House Foundation merchandise. Each item has been thoughtfully crafted by our stand-up retail partners, and the best part is that you’re supporting a unique yet essential cause with every purchase. Wear our wares – you’ll be supporting many Albertan women battling cancer when you do.
A house becomes a home when it has a pantry stocked with care. You can help us fulfill that mission by donating specific grocery items, all for the women who stay with us. We accept most dry goods and packaged items, but for our specific needs at the moment, please call or email.
Sorrentino’s Compassion House is more than just a house. It is a haven for women who must leave their homes and communities for cancer care.
With Support a Stay you can ease the stress of the cancer journey, helping women concentrate on what is most important – their healing, and getting back to a life they deserve.
While monetary assistance certainly makes our mission much more possible, it truly is the gift of time that we, and the women we help, remember.
Depending on what works with your schedule and your comfort level of commitment, there are multiple ways for you to volunteer your time and effort.
Consider having fun with friends while raising funds to support Compassion House Foundation. Hosting a fundraiser is a memorable way to do some good, and we are right here to help. From budgets to themes to setting up giving opportunities, we can offer guidance for your special fundraising event.
