An ambitious, decade-long fundraising program from William Osler Health Centre Foundation has surpassed its goal of $100 million.
The You Have The Power campaign wrapped up this week with a total of $109M raised to support health care needs of the community.
“Thanks to 34,000 donors, we were able to surpass our ambitious fundraising goal,” said Ken Mayhew, president and CEO, Osler Foundation. “We are so grateful to our community, our champions and to every single person who contributed to the campaign. From local fundraisers to multi‐million dollar gifts, this was truly a community effort.”
Over the years, the money has been used for a wide variety of Osler projects, from the building and equipping of Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness to a new patient tower at Etobicoke General Hospital to cutting-edge equipment for Brampton Civic Hospital.
“Exceptional patient care calls for exceptional and innovative health care facilities and equipment,” said Dr. Naveed Mohammad, President & CEO, William Osler Health System. “This campaign has made it possible for Osler staff and physicians to continuously meet the needs of our community, especially over the past year.”
While the You Have The Power campaign has officially closed, Osler Foundation continues to fundraise to help support Osler and its teams. For more than a year, Osler’s staff, physicians and volunteers have been on the frontlines of the COVID‐19 pandemic, providing compassionate care for some of the hardest‐hit communities in Ontario. Donations to the Osler Foundation Compassion Fund will help support the most urgent needs, including resources needed to ensure their emotional and mental well‐being.
