Donate to Gilda's Club
No one should have to face cancer alone
And thanks to Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka, no one has to.
Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka is an independent and locally-funded affiliate of the worldwide Cancer Support Community and we provide support, education, hope and healing to everyone currently impacted by cancer.
What’s more, all our services are free of charge.
Free support is a critical component of the Gilda’s Club philosophy. We know that the last thing anyone dealing with cancer needs is another expense.
We need a community of donors and volunteers to ensure that this valuable, life-enhancing program is available for those who need it. Help us ensure that community is stronger than cancer.
Any donation, big or small, will help provide information, education, and emotional support to people living with the impact of cancer in our community.
Become a Gilda’s Givers and see how powerful an investment of monthly donations make in our Cancer Support Program. A small donation will make a big difference over time.
A donation in memory of a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away creates a legacy of caring. We will send a card acknowledging your donation to the family.
