At Osler, we are privileged to be part of a community that is rich with kindness, generosity, and passion for exceptional health care.
Our fantastic staff, as well as the patients and families in the community, get to see, use and experience this wealth of community spirit each and every day. The generosity of our donors makes it possible for us to buy innovative equipment like AccuVein, which helps to locate veins in patients where they may be difficult to find.
Thanks to our generous donors who enthusiastically support Osler Foundation, we have the technology, facilities and educational opportunities we need to provide patient-inspired care to the community we serve.
Last month, we hosted three special receptions to honour our outstanding leadership-level donors. Every year, donors who have pledged or made a $10,000 gift or more to one of our three hospitals are celebrated by having their names engraved on that hospital’s Circle of Champions donor wall.
At the celebration, donors got to experience how their gifts have impacted the care at our hospitals. We couldn’t do what we do without them!
Our staff also got in the giving spirit at the launch of our annual I ♥ My Hospital Employee Giving campaign. This year’s celebration was called OslerFest, and featured a week of fun activities, events and prizes. From a pumpkin carving contest to a fall carnival to mascot design contests, the Osler family came out to show their support of our Foundation. Your enthusiasm and generosity helped us reach our goal of $160,000! We also have 150 new donors this year – a 155 per cent increase over last year.
