Three times per week, and sometimes for years, patients with chronic kidney disease spend hours hooked up to a lifesaving dialysis machine. While Grand River offers hemodialysis at the hospital, our comprehensive renal program also provides patients with a range of clinics and care options that can fit into their existing lifestyle and help keep them at home.

More than 3,000 people rely on Grand River’s renal clinics. Every person begins their journey with education about their kidneys as the body’s filtration system. Kidneys remove waste, salt and extra water; control the levels of chemicals like sodium and potassium; help make red blood cells and control blood pressure.  When the kidneys begin to fail—whether from physical injury or diseases like diabetes—the body needs help. Dialysis cleans the body by removing potentially harmful waste, water and chemicals.

Once you have selected your donation amount and clicked donate, it will take you to a shopping cart experience. From there you can review your total and then click complete payment at the bottom of the screen before being taken to a secure payment information page.


Tax receipts are automatically sent once you have completed your payment information and checked out. If you do not see an email come through with your tax receipt, please check your junk or spam email folders. The email subject line is Grand River Hospital Foundation Donation Receipt.

If you still cannot find it, please contact Jesse Borden, Fulfillment Manager & Donor Advocate at 226-750-2074 or for support. 

When donating, any information entered in the billing address fields on the payment screen will be used to generate an automatic tax receipt. If a company name is added here, the tax receipt will be issued to the company.

If your donation is in honour of a friend or loved one, you can email them a digital e-card upon making a donation.

E-cards are available for donations made in memory and in celebration of someone, and each e-card allows you to customize the message being sent. In order to send an e-card, you will need to know the recipient's email address.

When you reach the completed payment screen, you will see the available e-card options, or you can click this link to send an e-card and message directly.

The Foundation will only notify individuals upon request. You can use the cart note function to provide a message and contact details for the recipient.
