St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation


About St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation

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 Impact

Last year the Foundation granted over $7 million to St. Joseph’s Health Hamilton thanks to generous contributions from more than 10,000 donors.  This support helps to construct and renew the very best patient care spaces and places, fund vital equipment purchases, build upon our expertise in robotic surgery innovation, and to expand world-renowned research programs. This year our Hospital is celebrating 130 years of caring for our community, and with your support, St. Joe’s will continue providing the very best care to you and those you love for centuries more to come.

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.
