On Tuesday, your gift makes all the difference.


This December 1, Baycrest will be part of the Giving Tuesday movement – a globally recognized day dedicated to giving back to your community.

A counterpoint to the shopping and spending of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a globally recognized charitable day of giving when organizations, institutions and donors rally for meaningful causes and take action. After treating yourself, you can join together with donors around the world and support a cause that’s meaningful to you.

This year, Baycrest wants to make sure you double your impact! For every dollar you give, Baycrest will receive two – thanks to matching fund donors Garry and Joanne Foster.1

Please join our giving Tuesday cause and support Baycrest’s goal to raise $20,000 to fund the purchase of three (3) new automated external defibrillators (AEDs), as well as other crucial emergency equipment.

Joanne and I encourage the community to get involved with Giving Tuesday in support of Baycrest and for this vital equipment.
~ Garry Foster, President and CEO of Baycrest Foundation

A portable automated external defibrillator (AED) monitors the heart’s rhythm and can be used on-site to send an electric shock to restart it in case of heart failure. With your help, we can use the $20,000 to purchase these AEDs and other essential medical equipment that can save lives during emergencies.

Make a donation to Baycrest today or any time until the end of Giving Tuesday on December 1, and watch your donation double. 2

Your Giving Tuesday gift – combined with Garry and Joanne’s matching donation – will help us all live longer, healthier lives.

Please donate today and help make sure this holiday season is about both giving and giving back!

1. A total of $10,000 in donations will be matched.
2. A minimum $10 donation is required to be entered into the draw and receive a tax receipt.
