Ways to Give
The annual Bedpan Trophy Relay supports both the QEH and PCH Foundations. The event takes teams of 12 from each hospital running predetermined legs over a 60 km route through the Confederation Trail handing off the baton at the end of each leg between Charlottetown and Summerside. The team to reach the finish line first wins! Team members collect pledges with the proceeds supporting the purchase of medical equipment at both facilities.
This year the Bedpan Relay will take place on June 3rd, beginning in Summerside and ending in Charlottetown.
Fundraise for PCH
Your time and effort will benefit thousands of Islanders cared for at Prince County Hospital each year. No matter how large or small, your contribution will make a difference and we thank you. Prince County Hospital Foundation appreciates the support of groups and businesses in the community that sponsor events to raise funds for the Hospital.
All event applications must be approved prior to promoting or executing any third party event by our Managing Director. Please submit your event proposal form at least one month before the event date.
Please complete the proposal form and submit to the Foundation office for consideration.
Lights for Life
Lights for Life is your opportunity to remember someone you love each holiday season. The skies will light up over Prince County Hospital on the first Wednesday each December. Each year, light displays are dedicated in memory and honour of loved ones, with all proceeds going toward equipment for the hospital.
The lighting ceremony is choreographed to music and is preceded by a performance from the PCH staff choir, along with hot chocolate, cider and cookies for spectators. Presented by the Credit Unions of Prince County, Lights for Life has raised close to $2 Million for the hospital foundation since its inception.
Gifts can be made at the PCH Foundation office in the hospital, by calling 432-2547, or using our Online Form
A contribution to the Prince County Hospital Foundation ensures that the memory of your loved one lives on, because it is used to purchase medical equipment at Prince County Hospital.
When you make a memorial gift to the hospital foundation, we send a note to the family informing them of your thoughtfulness. It lists your name as the donor, but not the amount of your gift.
Vital Signs – Greatest Needs
One of the many ways we continue to improve PCH is through the Vital Signs Annual Equipment Campaign which provides funds for the purchase of priority medical equipment for this hospital. The Vital Signs Campaign is the umbrella initiative under which all other fundraising efforts fall. The goal of this campaign encompasses all pieces of equipment needed in a given year. Equipment needs vary each year; however each item holds an important role in patient care. A large part of this campaign is mail-out appeal that is sent to thousands of Islanders.
At the Prince County Hospital Foundation we aim to make it as easy as possible for you to make a gift.
In these trying economic times, it may be difficult to make a gift as large as you would like all at once. The convenience of monthly giving allows you to make you contribution to the PCH Foundation over the course of the year. While it might seem like a small amount now, at the end of the year you’ve really made a difference in the lives of patients and staff at PCH.
How Can I Pledge Through Monthly Giving?
Gifts may be made monthly by pre-authorized debit from your bank account or by credit card. If you set a defined period for your giving (eg. – 12 months, 24 months) we will contact you for your wishes at the end of that period. Alternatively, you can establish a “recurring” gift wherein you will make monthly gifts until you tell us to stop.
Simply contact Lisa at the Foundation office for more information – to receive a monthly giving form. You may of course change or cancel this arrangement at any time.
Special Occasion Giving
What do you give someone who has everything, and needs nothing? A gift to the hospital, in their honour, is a thoughtful choice. It will make a difference to the patients and staff at PCH, and it will be a valuable way to mark a birthday, anniversary, retirement, graduation, new baby, or even a special day, such as Christmas.
Special Occasion gifts can be made online or in person at the PCH Foundation office.
The Foundation has Special Occasion Gift cards available for you to fill out, and mail back in a stamped, self-addressed envelope. We will send the person that you are honouring a lovely card detailing that a gift was made to the hospital. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed, but there is room for a personal note if you wish to add it.
