A Message from our  President

North York General is making a world of difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve, through the excellence of our staff, physicians and volunteers. Each one of our donors and supporters have also impacted patient care by funding key clinical priorities through the Campaign. We have shared more about our Hospital’s achievements and this year’s milestones in the 2012-2013 Foundation Annual Report.

North York General Foundation recorded a historic fiscal year in 2012-13, granting $5.5 million to our Hospital to provide the resources needed for NYGH to remain a centre for exceptional care and teaching. Thanks to our donors and the work of our volunteers, $81.9 million has been raised as of this month toward our Campaign goal of $150 million.

I am also proud to share with you our refreshed Campaign brand, designed to align seamlessly with the new North York General visual identity. As our donors have played a key role in helping our Hospital reach many milestones this year, we know that every gift truly makes a world of difference and we will continue to advocate for North York General as a destination for philanthropy in the GTA.
