Donors help save lives and fund new ideas that lead to better outcomes for patients and families.
London Health Sciences Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that raises funds on behalf of London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC).
Significant provincial funding constraints and rising demands in patient care needs have stretched our hospital beyond its capacity and yet LHSC has remained steadfast in its goal to lead positive change that continually improves patient care.
Our passionate donors and volunteers want to be part of that change and know that every gift matters. Donors help reunite patients with their loved ones sooner. Their support helps safely deliver babies into the world. They help inspire ground-breaking research and fund programs in the community that put arms around people who need help to get back on their feet. They purchase life-saving technology and equipment. Most importantly, the generous support of donors through LHSF helps save lives.
Donors give in many ways. People from communities across Southwestern Ontario – as well as physicians and staff from LHSC – give thousands of volunteer hours, buy Dream Lottery tickets, organize and attend Community Events, and join us for the Country Classic Auction and Tastings. They also give donations of all sizes, make monthly pledges, give through their place of business, or make a Legacy Gift through their Will.
There’s still so much more to do. There are research breakthroughs waiting to happen, better and more modern equipment being made available to improve patient outcomes, and front-line staff in need of resources that can only be made possible by donor gifts.
