  • Own a piece of history

This framed 13″ x 16″ item of memorabilia includes a photograph of Sir Frederick Banting, an inscribed facsimile of his signature, a photograph of the historic Hen House (with historic Banting farmhouse in background) and a slice of cedar shake taken from the siding of the Hen House once located on the Banting Homestead Heritage Park. The original Hen House, built in 1891 by Sir Frederick’s father, William, was destroyed in a fire on August 31, 1916. The replacement Hen House, being beyond repair, was demolished in 2010. The Tribute is one of a limited edition series of 300. There is also a series of 250 open recognition pieces.

Helping us to be flexible

Donors can provide the Foundation with the greatest flexibility to be responsive to existing and new priorities by making donations that are unrestricted or only broadly targeted. However, if you would like to direct your donation to a specific area or program, your contribution will be used to support the area or program of your choice.

Special Recognition Gifts

A gift can be made in the name of someone special, in memory of a deceased friend or loved one and their family or to recognize birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or any other special occasion. The Foundation will issue a notice to involved parties advising of such a gift if that is the wish of the donor. Those named ‘In Memory’ are added to our plaque and listed in a subsequent Newsletter.

Ensuring effective use of your donation

The Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation is grateful for gifts of any amount in support of the Foundation’s objectives. The Foundation Board of Directors disperses donated funds in a timely manner consistent with program priorities, the specific wishes of donors, the Foundation’s available resources and the obligation of the Foundation to prudently manage the collective portfolio of funds available.

Whatever the option you choose, we are grateful for all donations and all the forms of support we receive.
