A Letter from the President
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and learn more about how your support of St. Joseph’s can truly help to create a healthier community. This past year, thanks to the generous support of our grateful patients, donors, hospital staff, friends and volunteers, we raised the most funds since our Foundation’s establishment in 1970. More than $12.9 million in new gifts was secured during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. When added to the $52 million in gifts and pledges we announced at our Timeless Care, Tomorrow’s Discoveries Campaign launch event in June 2011, we are proud to say that the largest campaign in the 122-year history of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton is making great strides towards its $75 million goal.
Since the early phases of the Timeless Care, Tomorrow’s Discoveries Campaign, our Foundation Board and Campaign Cabinet have worked with individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations to raise nearly $65 million towards our $75 million goal. The donations we are securing are helping St. Joseph’s to construct a new mental health and medical care centre on our West 5th Campus, to bring the future of surgical care to our Hospital, and to supercharge our healthcare research enterprise.
Having cared for the community for well over a century, we are blessed to have so many supporters and grateful patients living in our region. Donations of all sizes, when collectively brought together, make a tremendous difference in the lives of the patients we are honoured to serve. Our philosophy as a foundation is that every gift matters, and every dollar counts.
Please continue to browse through our website to learn more about our campaign, its vital fundraising priorities, and just how powerful sharing your story, or pledging your support can be.
For us, the stories we profile on this website are a constant reminder of the ways in which the work we are privileged to do impacts the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients who are cared for by St. Joe’s every year. Please support our Campaign for a healthier tomorrow for us all.
