London Health Sciences Foundation is in the midst of a campaign to raise funds for the current and future needs of our hospital. In the fiscal year ending March 2016, more than $24.4 million was raised towards our $200 million goal from donations and bequests from across our region, as well as through community-organized events, foundation signature events, Dream Lottery and investments.
Almost 10,000 of those who gave were new donors, which is important for the sustainability of this philanthropic funding. Donors also committed an additional $4.8 million in pledges that will help us sustain revenue flow in the future.
You can see more results from last year in our 2016 Report to the Community.
We cannot thank each and every one of our amazing donors, volunteers, lottery supporters, event organizers and event participants enough. You have done - and continue to do - so much. It is your generosity which enables doctors, researchers and staff at London Health Sciences Centre to provide innovative and compassionate care to all they serve.
We hope that you will join with us this year as we increase the public profile of our campaign, encouraging communities from across our region to help keep LHSC at the forefront of health care - for the benefit of all the patients and families it serves across Southwestern Ontario and beyond.
