Who We Are
St. Joseph's Healthcare Foundation is known for building lasting, mutually rewarding partnerships that enable St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, a multi-campus, teaching hospital, to provide the best in compassionate patient care and innovative medical research.
For the past 40 years, the Foundation has reached out to the community for donations, big and small, to assist with capital improvements, research funding, academic infrastructure and equipment renewals and enhancements. Since 1970, together we have raised more than $119 million for St. Joseph's, which has emerged as one of Canada's leading health science centres.
Whether you choose to support a specific program at St. Joseph's or designate your gift to the Hospital's greatest needs, every gift to the Foundation has a marked impact on the lives of thousands of patients served each year.
