The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital Hoping to Raise $175,000 this Holiday Season

The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital is launching its Seasonal Fundraising Campaign next week and is asking community members to respond as generously as they are able.

“Existing donors and community members who are thinking about making a donation often don’t know how much we rely on their support, ” said Suzanne Bone, CEO of the Foundation.

Lots of the equipment hospitals really need isn’t paid for by the provincial government. In fact, at Guelph General Hospital, one of every two dollars spent on hospital equipment comes from a donor.

This year’s Campaign will help the Hospital address important priorities such as vital signs monitors for every bedside, a central, cardiac monitoring system, ceiling lifts and specialized patient beds.

“The Hospital is simply not able to afford these items without the caring support of our donors,” said Bone.

The Seasonal Campaign will include a series of letters to those who have made a donation to the Foundation in the past and will ask them to consider making another donation this holiday season. Those who have not made a donation in the past can donate; online at, by phone to 519-837-6422, or by cheque payable to The Foundation of GGH mailed to 115 Delhi Street, Guelph, ON N1G 4J4.
