President & CEO
North York General Foundation

At the halfway point of 2017, it is time to take a moment and reflect on what a wonderful year it has been to date. Thanks to our generous community, North York General Foundation achieved a historic high, as our fiscal year 2016/17 closed with an incredible $17.8M raised through fundraising and investment revenues.

To share this success and more, this year’s Report to the Community features the work of the Foundation through some of the Women of North York who have helped to shape North York General Hospital. Though many, many women deserved to be in this publication, we could only share 10 stories to represent the numerous ways women are transforming our hospital.  We look forward to sharing the inspiring stories of supporters that have made North York General the hospital it is today in the months ahead.

Make sure to check out our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for the launch of an exciting behind-the-scenes video, featured profiles and highlights. 

We are encouraged by a successful first half of the year, but at the Foundation there is never time to rest on our laurels. Together with our community, we have raised an incredible $129M toward our historic $150M Campaign for North York General goal. As we approach the hospital’s 50th year in 2018, we will have much to celebrate with you. 

With warm wishes for a safe and relaxing summer,

Terry Pursell
