Nurse talking to patient

Accountability Matters Here

Your donations mean we can invest in the health care needs of our community.

Because of your generosity, St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation received $6.5M in donations in 2018–2019 to put toward care and research initiatives that would otherwise not have been possible.

Thanks to your support, the Foundation was able to contribute $1.1M to the refurbished Palliative Care Unit and $730,159 to endowed chairs, which provide St. Joseph’s with the resources needed to do outstanding work in medical research, patient care and teaching. Donations enabled 112 grants to various projects and $4.1M allocated across St. Joseph’s.

This past year, charities across Canada were impacted by several environmental factors that occurred near year end. This included a volatile investment market that impacted donor giving and a postal strike. And yet, for every $1 of cost expended by the Foundation, $1.86 in value was realized for St. Joseph’s – a value that would otherwise not have been available to the hospital for its care and research efforts.

We encourage you to read more about donor impact and view all the initiatives you helped make possible in the complete 2018–2019 listing of grants.
