Twin Baby Brothers Making a World of Difference

ISSUE 18 | NOV 2013

A Message from
the Foundation President

The weeks are passing quickly and at the North York General Foundation, we are preparing for the holiday giving season. December is a terrifically busy time of year for everyone but it is important to find personal moments for reflection, joy and gratitude.

Our community is so fortunate to have a hospital of the calibre of North York General as a health care resource that can be relied upon all year long. In order to improve our patient experience and respond to changing and emerging health care needs, we rely on donor dollars to help us serve you, and more than 500,000 others in our community. 

Please consider North York General in your holiday or year-end giving plans by giving a gift in any number of ways – eCards, the Say Thanks Program, our Giving Catalogue – or simply through a regular donation online, by phone or by mail. You can also make gifts of stocks or mutual funds to receive maximum tax benefits.  No matter how you choose to give, you will be supporting an improved patient experience and the Campaign for North York General, which has reached $87 million of our $150 million goal.

In a community that is uniquely North York, you know that every gift makes a world of difference to our patients and their families.

With my warmest regards,

Terry Purse;;

Twin baby brothers Tommy and Mason spent their first few weeks of life in North York General’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). They received life-saving care that inspired their mother, Jody, to raise funds for critical equipment at our Hospital. “They see so many babies and they treat each one with love.”

Help Secure our Future - Make a Gift of Securities

Gifts of securities not only benefit the patients and families we serve, but can also be a tax-efficient method of charitable giving. When you donate stocks or mutual funds to the Foundation, you’ll reduce your tax bill and make a significant gift at the same time.
