Your Donation Makes a Difference
What Would You Do Without Medical Care?
Imagine not having access to medical care for yourself or someone you love.
The fear and uncertainty of not getting well is debilitating.
And yet, that’s what many African’s face every day.
But you can help.
Donations Bring Hope and Healing
Direct Medical Services
Costs to run our fully functioning hospital ships are increasing. Gifts from donors help keep us providing medical services and our vessels running safely, so we can continue to treat people in great need of health care.
We serve to bring medical care to people in great need. Our ships are fully equipped with state-of-the-art medical facilities. This means all of our medical equipment must meet the highest standards.
Medical Capacity Building
To make medical care accessible for all, we partner with local healthcare workers to provide training and educational opportunities. Strengthening local healthcare systems and infrastructure is a vital part of our work.
Ways To Donate
One Time Donation
Become a Mercy Ships partner and donate monthly. Financially partnering with us regularly comes with a few benefits.
- Easier to budget – avoid last-minute charitable giving.
- Receive one consolidated official donation receipt for the entire calendar year.
Gifts of Securities
The Canada Revenue Agency has eliminated taxes payable by Canadians who donate appreciated securities (including stocks, bonds and mutual funds) directly to a registered charity.
If you own publicly-traded securities that have increased in value and decide to transfer them, none of the capital gains are taxable. You will receive an official donation receipt for the value of the shares at the close of business on the date the transfer is received into the brokerage account of Mercy Ships Canada.
Leave a lasting legacy. There are several ways you can include Mercy Ships into your planned giving.
- Wills and Estates
- Donor-Advised Funds
Create shared value through Corporate Partnerships. Social responsibility is a long-term investment that serves to strengthen company’s operations and competitiveness in the marketplace. It has been proven to attract and engage talented employees, and enhance reputations.
