Party favours and gifts in-kind

Party favours

Thank you for sharing your special day with us. Special occasions like weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries can be marked by a donation to NEO Kids Foundation through donations in lieu of party favours, requests for donations instead of gifts, and thank you gifts for your wedding guests.

To recognize your support, we provide customized acknowledgment cards to let your guests know that a gift has been made in their honour to NEO Kids Foundation.

Gifts in-kind

Thank you for your interest in making a donation of a gift in-kind to NEO Kids Foundation for the benefit of children and their families.

Health Sciences North is a place of healing and hope that thrives and depends on the generosity of people like you. At NEO Kids Foundation, we try our best to help the patients and families of Health Sciences North’s NEO Kids & Family programs feel as welcome and comfortable as they would at home.

Donations of brand new toys, electronics, crafts, books, and games help us bring joy and comfort to children throughout their hospital stay or appointment.

Donations may be used in any one of our playrooms, as rewards after completing a test or undergoing a scary procedure, and/or as gifts for a patient’s birthday or other special milestones.

For the health and safety of our patients, we must be very careful about the types of gifts we accept as donations. Before making your donation, please read our Donation Guidelines or contact our Events and Community Outreach Coordinator at 705-523-7100 ext. 1229 or

Thank you for understanding and supporting our donation guidelines. In doing so, you are joining us in creating a safe, positive environment where we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve.
