Foundation of Guelph General Hospital Program Hub

The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital was established in 1987 to raise and steward funds to enhance Guelph General Hospital’s provision for much of the day-to-day costs of running the hospital. Although government funding does cover some of the costs associated with healthcare in the hospital, it does not cover most costs associated with patient care equipment.

The hospital relies on the support of our community, through The Foundation, to provide funds for this equipment. If you or a loved one has ever needed an MRI scan, a ventilator, or lab work at the hospital they have benefited from the generosity of our donors.

Program details

Monthly Giving

Sign up for monthly giving and know that your donation is helping fund some of the highest priority patient care equipment across the hospital. Monthly gifts are billed on the 15th of every month and can be made at any amount.

Funding consistency from monthly donors allows Guelph General to plan and budget more effectively, knowing that a certain amount will be coming in regularly. While individual one-time donations are valuable, monthly contributions can add up to a larger cumulative impact over time. Even small monthly donations can result in a significant contribution by the end of the year.

Planned Giving

Planned giving refers to several types of gifts that are arranged, or planned, in the present to be allocated at a future date. These gifts are usually made through a will or trust.

Planned giving donors become part of our Heritage Society meeting once annually for a recognition luncheon with a special speaker from the hospital. Members of the society are also able to attend hospital tours and educational seminars.

Once a planned gift is confirmed, members, with their permission, are recognized in Foundation publications. These extraordinary gifts are also recognized on our Donor Wall and all requests for anonymity will be respected.
