M.Patricia Krukowski Memorial Fund and Nursing Award
& Toyota Nursing Award

With generous donations made by Toyota Canada and by friends and family in memory of M. Patricia Krukowski, two awards have recently been established to support  registered nurses (RNs) at St. Joseph’s in their certification through the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA). The M. Patricia Krukowski Memorial Fund and Nursing Award and the Toyota Nursing Award will support nurses through annual grants of $500 to obtain their initial CNA Certification. 

Application forms will be available annually in advance of the CNA Certification Exam. For 2014/15, the application deadline for funding the April 2015 CNA Certification Exam was December 31, 2014. A similar timeline will be followed in subsequent years.

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation is grateful to the M. Patricia Krukowski Memorial Fund and Toyota Canada for their support of nurses at St. Joseph’s and patient care for our entire community.

For more information about the M. Patricia Krukowski Memorial Fund and Nursing Award and the Toyota Nursing Award, please contact Cheryl Evans, Nursing Professional Practice & Policy Advisor at ext. 35090 or

Payday Payouts Lottery

You can win BIG by playing St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation’s Payday Payouts 50/50 lottery!
A new lottery season begins in April, with more tickets available than ever before.

If you're a new staff member at St. Joe’s or if you’ve been waiting to play Payday Payouts, now is your chance. 
Click here to download the enrollment form, then return it to Liz Marck in the Payroll Department.

Tickets are (as always!) $3 per ticket per pay period with a maximum of six tickets per player. Your ticket amount will be automatically deducted from your paycheque, which will ensure your chance to win the bi-weekly draw which averages about $6,000!

50% of all ticket revenue creates the prize amount, while the other 50% supports the Hospital's greatest needs … so everybody wins! Tickets tend to sell out quickly, so sign-up early to guarantee your chance to win the Payday Payouts Lottery!

Please note:
Players already enrolled in the lottery will automatically receive new tickets, unless you inform the Payroll Department that you would like to opt out. Players already enrolled can order more tickets, up to a maximum of six tickets per player.

As of April 12, 2013, and due to new lottery procedures, the Payday Payouts draws will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Payday Fridays (instead of Thursdays) in the lobby of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation located at 224 James Street South, at the corner of James Street & Charlton Avenue.

All ticket holders are invited to the lobby of the Foundation to witness the draw.
