Community Events

Community events are fundraising events that are put on by individuals or organizations in support of our Hospital.

Community events are a significant revenue source, raising about $50,000 or more each year and helping to make patient care better at Guelph General Hospital by funding essential patient care equipment.

If you’re interested in organizing your own event, please visit the Lead Your Own Fundraising Event page on our website.
