Since 1987, Providence Healthcare Foundation has been working with our generous donors and the community-at-large to raise essential funds for Providence Healthcare. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our friends for your outstanding dedication to the Foundation. All of our supporters – donors, ambassadors, and volunteers – have truly made a lasting difference through their generous spirits and unwavering commitment to Providence Healthcare.
The Foundation Board of Directors approves all fundraising priorities by deliberating on the fundraising strength of projects requested by the Providence, St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s Healthcare Network Board. This ensures our annual fundraising objectives are clearly defined, but, more importantly, it ensures donor dollars are directed to the areas of greatest need as defined by Providence Healthcare.
In the fiscal year 2018/19, the Foundation’s goal is to raise $3,654,000 (net) to directly support the most urgent needs of Providence Healthcare. We will achieve this goal through various fundraising initiatives which include: active major gift and planned giving programs, our three special events, bi-annual direct mail appeals, third-party events, tribute program, family fundraising campaign and staff campaign. In fact, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are already well on our way to meeting our target!
Providence Healthcare Foundation became one of the few Canadian charities to achieve prestigious accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standards Program on October 31, 2017.
The Standards Program awards accreditation to Canadian charities and nonprofits that demonstrate excellence in five areas of operations: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
With over 85,000 charities in Canada, fewer than 3% have been recognized with this gold standard for operational excellence.
