All resources through Oasis, Centre of Bereavement and Healing are free to everyone who requires bereavement support.  All funds are generated through our community, by donations, monthly giving, special events and third party events. 

Empty Chair Auction

The Empty Chair Auction is a major fundraiser for Oasis. Everyone – every single person, at some point in their lives, will face an empty chair. When a loved one has died, there is a space that is left in our lives that we need to figure out. Oasis will support every member of our community who faces that empty chair and we will walk with them as they begin to find beauty, purpose and meaning in that empty chair.

Ideas for Third Party Events

Oasis, Centre of Bereavement and Healing are grateful that you are interested in supporting their mission.

Third party events are a wonderful way to raise not only much needed funds for a worthy cause, but also an awareness of this valuable resource. It doesn’t hurt that at the same time planning and executing an event, will bring fun for friends, families and colleagues. Your support enables us to reach the bereaved community of York Region, offering access to supports that can help through this difficult time.

Whether you are at school or in the workforce there are many different ways you can support your community.


  • Sporting events
  • Golf tournaments
  • BBQ’s
  • Car Wash
  • Bake Sales
  • Lemonade stand
  • Hot Chocolate stand

Why not consider celebrating your birthday, or anniversary, by asking your family and friends, that in lieu of gifts make a donation in your honour to Oasis, Centre of Bereavement and Healing.

Also remember high school students need volunteer hours, by organising and raising funds for a charity counts towards your hours. It’s time to be creative!
