Together, we can make excellent health care truly extraordinary.
We are fortunate to live in a province and country where government funding finances the daily operation and administration of hospitals. However, it is our donors who take us to the next, advanced level of care, a level of care well beyond what might be achieved solely through government funding.
Donor dollars enable world-class research, provide specialized equipment and facilities, and support the continuing education and training of our medical professionals, all of which serve to distinguish London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) as a local, national and international leader in health care. Donor dollars do not fund the day-to-day operational costs of our Hospital, like administrative salaries and severances.
Donors to London Health Sciences Foundation (LHSF) can support our Hospital and local health care by giving to a specific program or by supporting the highest-priority needs of LHSC. Either way, donations advance the standard of care and assist in the development of critical initiatives which would not otherwise be funded, leading to innovative treatments and breakthrough discoveries.
London Health Sciences Foundation is committed to ethical and transparent fundraising:
Donations fund innovative equipment, research, education and enhanced patient care.
Patient Care: Donations in support of patient care fund projects that directly impact a patient's experience, including new construction and renovations as well as patient assistance programs.
Equipment: Donations in support of equipment fund state-of-the-art technology that gives Hospital staff access to the latest medical advancements to better care for patients.
Research: Donations in support of research assist projects that would not otherwise occur - and which lead to discoveries that advance health care for the people of Southwestern Ontario and beyond.
Education: Donations in support of education fund learning opportunities such as fellowships, advanced training for health care professionals and educational programs for Hospital patients and community.
