Get Involved

All programs and services offered by BFO Cornwall are free of charge! BFO Cornwall is funded by the generosity of our community, in the form of donations and at the Annual Gala Dinner Fundraiser. BFO Cornwall receives no government funding. We are seeking your support and generosity in order to continue delivering valuable programs and services to our community. A tax receipt will be issued for donations of $10 or more.

Ways to Give

In-Kind Donations are always welcome and greatly appreciated. Below is a list of items that we can always use:

  • Toilet paper and kleenex
  • Coffee and tea
  • Cookies/snacks for support groups
  • Office supplies, etc.

We also welcome donations of new or used bereavement books and are always pleased to place a memorial inscription in each book donated.

Charitable Registration Number: 86361-0358-RR0001

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity towards Bereaved Families of Ontario-Cornwall and the people receiving support from our support groups.

Though donations are always welcome, they lack what Bereaved Families of Ontario-Cornwall is always seeking to promote and establish in the community; Relationships.

Through sponsoring, we can form an ongoing partnership that contributes in the development and use of programs we offer to the community. Sponsorship is not just limited to financial contributions, there are several ways we can partner; we are always looking for resources such as books, locations to hold events, and so on.

Volunteers are the heart of this organization and our greatest asset. Without their dedication and many hours of support to the bereaved of our community, the programs and services we offer would not be possible. Each volunteer at Bereaved Families of Ontario-Cornwall is a bereaved themselves and has participated in a recognized training program from our Provincial Quality Assurance programs.

Bereavement Facilitator Training is offered as the need arises (mandatory for all volunteers who deal with clients) and for interested community professionals at a minimal cost.
