How to give

Donate Now

This totally secure online platform lets you allocate the area you want to support: HUSTLE at HIM, Totally Outright, Counselling and Coaching, Health Centres, Research, etc. You can also provide general financial support and we’ll choose the area in the most need.

In Memoriam giving

Honour the memory of a loved one by making a financial contribution in their name.

Plan a third-party benefit event

We love to support fundraising events that benefit HIM. It could be a golf tournament, pub night, bake sale, or anything-a-thon. Be creative! Contact HIM for guidelines. Just a note: although we appreciate the desire to help, we don’t wish to compete for funds with other organizations in our community, and we enter into fundraising carefully.

Legacy giving

Support the things you care about most, now and after you’re gone. For many donors, legacy giving is an important part of estate planning. Including charitable gifts in your estate planning could also eliminate, or significantly reduce, any taxes payable upon your death. You decide what happens with your legacy gift: the funds can be for our immediate use, or they can be marked for a future date. There are a few ways legacy donations can be arranged:

  • wills and bequests
  • life insurance
  • RRSPs and RRIFs
  • charitable trusts
  • property
  • endowments
  • securities


For more information on how your donations can make a difference in the health and well-being of gay men, or if you are thinking of making a significant contribution, please email us at or phone (604) 488-1001.

Health Initiative for Men respectfully acknowledges that we are privileged to be working within the ceded and unceded, ancestral, traditional, and shared territories of the Coast Salish people.
