We are honoured that many individuals, organizations and companies would choose to make a donation of cash, gift card(s) or in-kind items to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. In order to serve the children in the hospital in the best way possible, we have provided a list of REQUESTED items from all wards and departments we serve.
PLEASE NOTE: Only new, unwrapped gifts for children will be accepted. Toys must follow the guidelines the Foundation and the Children’s Hospital have implemented.
How do I make a toy donation?
Please review the requested toy list and select the items as you may want to donate to us. Once you have purchased your gifts please BOOK A DROP OFF APPOINTMENT with our staff by calling 204-787-4000. For security purposes, a scheduled drop off must occur.
I want my toy donation for a specific ward.
Please contact our staff to discuss a specific ward wish list.
Can I get a tax receipt for my in-kind donation?
Yes. Providing that you supply the Foundation with a receipt upon delivery of the items you can receive a receipt for the value BEFORE taxes.
I want to personally delivery toys to kids in the Hospital.
We appreciate your generosity, however, due to reasons, including protecting patient privacy and health; we cannot accommodate your request.
Can I donate money to buy toys?
