Your Donation Matters Here — that's our promise to you. It's a commitment to the highest standards of ethical fundraising practices and financial accountability to serve you better. St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation was among the first wave of organizations to earn Accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standards Program. With this achievement, we have joined a growing number of nonprofit organizations and charities dedicated to operational excellence.
The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and nonprofits designed to strengthen practices in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
