Since 1970, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation has worked with our community of grateful patients, supporters and friends to raise funds to support patient care, equipment and research at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. With three campuses serving a population of more than 2 million people, St. Joe’s is the regional lead in mental health and addictions care, kidney and urinary care, respiratory care, cancer surgeries and more. St. Joseph’s Healthcare is an international leader in robotic-assisted surgeries and a hub of healthcare research excellence.
Our remarkably generous community donated more than $11 million to our Foundation during the 2019-20 fiscal year, allowing us to make more than $8.4 million in grants to St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. These grants helped to renew and upgrade patient care facilities, fund vital equipment needs and healthcare research as well as support hospital programs, and training for our healthcare professionals. For a full breakdown of grant designations, please read our 2019-20 Donor Impact Report.
Planning a future gift through your Will or estate is a powerful statement about your faith and commitment to the future of healthcare in this community. A legacy gift is a way to say “thank you” for care received, to honour a care giver, or a way to ensure your loved ones, friends and neighbours will have access to exceptional patient care at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton.
How your gift will be used
St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation is pleased to work with donors to ensure their legacy or estate gift achieves their philanthropic goals. Donors may choose to support a particular program, department or area of our Hospital that has had an impact on the care they or a loved one has received at St. Joe’s. Alternatively, our Foundation can suggest some options to support the highest priority needs of our Hospital. The choice is yours and we can provide brochures, tours and access to healthcare experts to help donors come to a decision that assures them their legacy will have a lasting impact on the lives of the patients we are honoured to serve.
