Nelson & Joan Leeder

Regular donors since moving to the area many years ago, Nels and Joan Leeder made the decision to look at their investments as a way of future planning for additional support for the Hospital they both valued.

“Nels and I made conscious decision years ago to ensure that we did pre-planning of our assets.We sat down and asked ourselves….what charities are important for us to appreciate and who should benefit from our support?” Their wish to see St. Francis Memorial continue to be strong and sustainable made their decision to leave a gift of securities an easy one. “We recognized the future of this community having a Hospital, close to home. I know Nels would be pleased to know that the support we planned to leave is making a difference. For me, end of life grief was easier to bear knowing that because of our gift, life would be better for others.”


Star of Love

The following message was written by a patient of St. Francis Memorial Hospital. In honour of all who work, volunteer, visit, and have stayed as patients at SFMH, he has registered a star which he calls Star of Love. 

Name of Star: Star of Love

From The Star Registry to allat SFMH.

This star that was purchased, a star that can be seen in the night sky is for a very special Hospital. It is for all who work, visit, volunteer, or had a brief or long stay. It is also to the ones who were not so fortunate but will be remembered in the hearts and minds of those who were either family or friends.

This star is to all the staff that have made many peoples lives both better and their stay memorable and a happy one, including mine.

To the people at SFMH, may you always continue to shine bright for those in need and with just a friendly smile.

P.S. I hope you have a very bright star available so all can see it.


Mercedes the iPad Whiz

The St Francis Memorial Hospital is pleased to offer complimentary online/Wi-Fi access for patients and their families, helping them keep connected to friends, family and community news. Check out patient Mercedes Conway, who is 96 years young and a whiz with her iPad! Way to go Mercedes!!

As the Christmas season approaches, so does what has become an annual tradition in the Madawaska Valley, the Tree of Lights Campaign and Celebration.

This Campaign is always a very meaningful because it gives us the opportunity to honour someone special or remember a loved one by purchasing a bulb in their name, and at the same time, give the precious gift of health.

Your support this year will make an impact on the precious lives of many patients who depend on the St Francis Memorial Hospital to be there for them or their loved ones when it comes to heart health.

Whether you are a year round or seasonal resident, there are few of us that have not been touched by the St Francis Memorial Hospital in some way. Having 24 hour access to Emergency and Medical services eliminates the one hour plus drive to the next hospital, which can be stressful and literally life threatening, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Precious patient lives have been saved at St Francis, and keeping it well equipped helps us to continue to save many more.

Did you know that in Renfrew County the number of interventions as a result of heart disease is almost 20% higher than the provincial average? Furthermore, it is also quite alarming that heart disease and stroke are one of the leading causes of death for Canadian Women!

Tips for Event Success

  1. Choose an event
  2. Pick a date and time for your event
  3. Get to know the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. People are more likely to donate when you can clearly articulate why a cause is important and why you need their support. Visit our website to learn more about us.
  4. Form a volunteer event planning committee. If your planning committee has enough members to share tasks and a variety of skills & experience, you will have the right formula for a winning event.
  5. Create a work plan (and budget if necessary – an organized event is a successful event). Be sure to research whether your event will require any special permit, licenses, and/or insurance.
  6. Promote your event
  7. Have a back-up plan. Make sure you have a ‘plan B’, especially if your event is dependent on factors like the weather.

Support from the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation

  • Publicity and promotion via St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation’s social media pages including Facebook, our website, & display monitor (see below for more details)
  • Recognition- We are pleased to make arrangements with local newspapers to cover the event and/or if possible be present for cheque presentations.

Donations/Tax Receipt Guidelines

  • Please contact the Foundation if you have any questions regarding tax receipts. 

Publicity and Promotion

  • Eye-catching flyers, tickets, & other promotional materials will help make your event a success. The correct usage of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation’s name or logo is very important to us. Foundation staff will be available to work with you to approve the use of the name and logo prior to the event or distribution of materials. All promotional materials should make clear, where applicable, that the funds are being raised in support of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation rather than by the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation.

Thank you for your interest in hosting your own fundraising event on behalf of the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation. Every little bit counts and we appreciate your efforts to help us raise money to support local healthcare in your community.

Once you have an idea for the type of event you would like to host, please contact us at

How can an ordinary person be part of ensuring an extraordinary gift by making a donation in their will?  It's simple! Creating a gift in your Will for local healthcare is the simplest way to create a legacy of everlasting care. Legacy gifts provide vital, stable support for the work of our healthcare teams and whether your estate is large or small, you can make a difference for so many patients and families in our communities, and provide quality care for years to come.   

Even a gift in your Will of 1% of your estate can make a difference. 
In some ways, leaving a gift in your Will might also allow you to leave a larger gift than might have been possible during your lifetime.
You can leave a gift in your Will just the same as you would for a person. It can consist of:
- a personal assest (such as property or valuables like artwork, jewlery etc.)
- a specific amount of money
- a percentage or portion of your estate
- the money that remains after all of your wishes have been carried out to care for your family

Our community healthcare legacy has been built with the help of gifts made years ago by forward thinking individuals who included SFVH in their estate plans.  You can part of this legacy team by considering making a gift in your Will for the future.  

We would be very pleased to know if you have named the SFVH Foundation in your estate plans so that we can express our personal gratitude and ensure you receive the recognition you deserve.  We will hold the information in confidence should you wish to keep the gift confidential.

How to leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a future gift to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation is easy!
Simply:
1. Tell your family that you would like to make a gift to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation in support of local healthcare.
2. Instruct your family or lawyer to help you revise your Will to include a written statement like the one below:

Sample Statement to add to your Will
"I direct my trustee(s) to pay the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation, Barry's Bay, ON the sum of $___ (or ___% of my estate or the gift of ___) to be applied as determined by the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation's Board of Directors."

Legal Name: St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation 
Charitable Number: 89453 4817 RR0001
Address: 7 St. Francis Memorial Dr., PO Box 129 Barry's Bay, ON K0J 1B0

There is no treatment or medicine for aging and nothing can “fix” this. It cannot be avoided or controlled, no matter who we are or what we may have.

Perhaps the only thing we can control is what quality of life we want to have as we age.

Since opening its doors in 1978, the Valley Manor has provided compassionate care and quality of life to 90 residents, giving them a home away from home and helping to support family members who are no longer able to care for their love ones.

Having a long term care facility like the Manor in our backyards is crucial so that we can continue to serve our large senior population, and keep them in them in their home town where they are familiar and family can continue to be a big part of their lives.

We are all excited about the current plans to redevelop the Valley Manor at a new and mo0re accessible location right beside the St Francis Memorial Hospital and Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care Program .

Contact the Valley Manor (613-756-2643) for more information or call us at the Foundation about our upcoming plans to support this very important project.

Our very active registered charity has been raising funds in support of the equipment needs of the St Francis Memorial Hospital (Rainbow Valley Community Health Centre in Killaloe) since 2001.

Recently, the Foundation has enhanced its scope to include fundraising for all of the non profit healthcare organizations, including the MV Hospice Palliative Care program and the Valley Manor Nursing Home.

Our goal is to create an opportunity for the donors of the Madawaska Valley and area to advance healthcare by ensuring support for equipment and facility needs through the efforts of one fundraising organization. The SFVH Foundation will work in partnership with the three organizations to inclusively fundraise based on long term plans for the healthcare needs of the community.

The Foundation is closely connected with our community and receives strong support from individuals and organizations throughout our healthcare catchment area.
