When a Tribute Gift is made, is the amount of the donation disclosed?

No. The Northwood Foundation respects the privacy of donors and keeps this information confidential.

Why should I donate? I thought that Northwood was government-funded.

The government does not pay for programs and services that provide quality of life, therefore donor support is crucial. To ensure our Northwood Community remains a leader in continuing care, the Northwood Foundation raises funds for programs and services required by our Northwood Community health care providers to care for our clients throughout Nova Scotia.

Will you share my personal contact information with others?

No. The Northwood Foundation respects your privacy and is committed to the protection of your personal information in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We do not rent, sell or trade the personal information we collect including information contained in our mailing lists.

How long will it take to receive my tax receipt?

If you make an online donation, you will receive an electronic copy of your tax receipt immediately via email. If you make your donation by mail, or by phone, every effort will be made to process your receipt within 7 -10 business days, which you will receive by mail.

What’s the minimum donation required for a tax receipt?

To minimize administrative costs, paper tax receipts are issued for donations of $10 or greater. For online donations, e-tax receipts do not have a minimum donation.

Is my banking and credit card information shared with anyone?

No, all data is encrypted in a compliant environment according to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
