Thanks to generous donations from our community and the hard work of our volunteers, the Ladysmith Healthcare Auxiliary is able to donate each year to health care related causes that benefit members of our community. In 2019 the Ladysmith Healthcare Auxiliary donated and pledged over $270,000 in medical equipment and support to health related non-profit societies.

Organizations who wish to apply for funding from the Ladysmith Healthcare Auxiliary are asked to do so on a once per year basis. If your organization has various departments, please ensure they collaborate in making one funding request per year.
