Message from LHSF's President & CEO
Over its 20-year history, London Health Sciences Foundation has enjoyed donor support from the London community and surrounding region. Thank you.
In a time of increasing medical discovery and health research, keeping our hospital at the forefront of health care and responsive to the unique needs of our region will continue to require resources beyond that which tax-based funding can provide.
That is why our foundation committed in 2011 to raising $200 million for the current and future needs of London Health Sciences Centre - for advanced equipment and technology, research, education, and innovative patient care. To date, this fundraising campaign has surpassed $180 million in revenue and pledges.
While campaign efforts initially focused on support from donors with the capacity to make large contributions, donors at all levels have continued to make an amazing difference. In the coming months, the appeal will become more evident as we increasingly reach out publicly to encourage support. Please join us to ensure that LHSC has the optimal resources needed to provide the very best of care to patients and families who turn to our hospital at some of the most vulnerable times in their lives.
John H. MacFarlane
President & CEO
