We are proud of the support we receive from the staff of the Yarmouth Regional Hospital. They are an integral part of our connection to the community and we value their support. If you are a hospital employee, volunteer or physician interested in supporting the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation, here are the opportunities available to you:
Monthly giving to the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is easy and secure with Canada Helps. Each month Canada Helps will automatically process your donation on the day of the month you’ve selected.

Staff have the option of giving to the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation through bi-weekly payroll deductions.

A record of your payroll deduction donations will appear on your T-4 slip for income tax purposes. No other receipt will be issued.
