About the FGGH
Donors help fund every piece of patient care equipment at our Hospital.
The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital was established in 1987 to help meet the patient care needs at Guelph General Hospital.
Patient care equipment is not covered by government funding within the province of Ontario. Equipment as essential as IV pumps, surgical scopes and diagnostic scanners are available at Guelph General Hospital only because of generous financial gifts from within the community.
Since the Foundation’s inception almost 30 years ago, our community has responded generously with $50 million in kind and caring donations. Today, our community of donors collectively gives $3 million dollars each year to help support the Hospital.
Donors are an essential part of our Hospital’s healthcare team. They give our caregivers the tools they need to heal, comfort, and care for patients at Guelph General Hospital.
We are grateful to be situated in such a generous community. As our community grows, so too do the patient care needs at our Hospital as well as our appreciation for each and every gift we receive.
