Welcome Message

Tracy Gustafson and Susan CrowleyPhilanthropy is derived from a word that means the “love of humanity”, and philanthropic work is meant to nurture, develop and strengthen what it is to be human. We are so pleased to celebrate a year that truly demonstrates your commitment to positively transforming paediatric health care with generosity, kindness and compassion. As friends, ambassadors and partners of Children’s Health Foundation, you are raising awareness and funds to support the emotional, physical and psychological well-being of our young people. 

Each and every day, we witness the passion of our donors, volunteers, Board and staff team as they work diligently, think creatively, and invest strategically to support excellence in paediatric care, rehabilitation and research. Throughout the year, our families experience the compassion and care extended to their children, as our supporters work together to fund the purchase of specialized equipment, value added programs, life-enhancing research and services that enhance their health care journeys. We see firsthand the overwhelming love and gratitude of patient family ambassadors as they celebrate community giving that continues to save and improve our kids’ lives.

Thank you for empowering Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre to deliver patient- and family-centred care, for supporting Thames Valley Children’s Centre to rehabilitate their young clients to reach their full potential, and for enhancing the capacity of Children’s Health Research Institute scientists to address the causes and develop cures for paediatric health care challenges and complex diseases. The positive impact of your support extends throughout Southwestern Ontario and parts of Northern Ontario, across our country, and around the globe.

Thank you for being champions of philanthropy and for continuously prioritizing your love of children, family and community to make our world a healthier place to be.
