The Foundation turned to Lori Duffy, Chair of our Planned Giving Advisory Committee and a Partner with WeirFoulds LLP in estate law, to ask her about appointing an estate trustee: what you need to know, think about, and consider when asking someone to handle a job of such importance. In addition to the information posted here, you can hear much more about appointing estate trustees by listening to our “podcast” online.
On June 9, 2016, we had a unique opportunity as WIPP donors to come together and hear the stories of other inspiring women. We were moved by our dear friend, Patsy Badali, a long-time WIPP donor and volunteer, as she shared her first-hand experiences of Providence’s compassionate care in action with her family. We were also inspired and enlightened by Greta Hodgkinson as she shared her personal journey and passion for the Canadian arts and dance.
We enjoyed an impressive accomplishment at last night’s Annual Voting Meeting, granting a total contribution of $50,000 to a most worthy need at Providence Healthcare, as voted by you! The evening was such a resounding success! With your support, we also raised $7,600 in our raffle and hockey memorabilia live auction! We also welcomed 6 new MAPP donors who signed up at the event.
I was at a crossroad, with only ‘hope’ remaining for a miracle to happen. To my extraordinary good fortune, it did! It set me on a course that led me to Providence Healthcare.
On March 31, 2016, we witnessed a truly wonderful evening of camaraderie that showcased the great power of collective giving! Together, we all gathered for a special first glimpse of the beautiful WIPP-funded revitalization of Seasons Café, with the redesigned space looking simply stunning!

What a “MARVEL”lous event… Truly a Deadpoolian evening! On February 17, 2016, it was a superhero experience at the Private Movie Screening of Deadpool for the men of MAPP.
On December 2nd 2015, over 60 WIPP ladies and their guests gathered together in festive Yorkville to celebrate the holiday season in style. The ladies of WIPP enjoyed a cozy pre-reception at the Bloor Street Diner, and then laughed, and maybe shed some tears together, watching the movie Brooklyn.
