Inspiring the power of community to drive innovation in healthcare, together we are creating a healthier future for all New Brunswickers!
The Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation is a charitable organization focused on funding healthcare initiatives outside the scope of government. Our donors make an impact by investing in capital equipment, research, education, mental health and patient comfort at our hospital and across the province.
When George Allen wanted to give to the Saint John Regional, he wanted no muss and no fuss. That’s why monthly donations were the way to go. “I’ve been giving to the Foundation for many years,” says George, whose wife Joan of was an employee of the hospital before she passed. “If it wasn’t for the Foundation, improvements wouldn’t be made.” You can join George and show your support for the thousands of healthcare professionals that serve our province by becoming a monthly donor.
Glenn and Penny were so grateful for the care Glenn received that they wanted to give back. “When I was in rehab I saw new machines coming in and was told that a donor had helped purchase them” says Glenn. “My wife Penny and I decided to make a donation, and since then we’ve become monthly donors. We also made arrangements in our will to leave a legacy gift to the Foundation to support Dr. Bewick and Dr. Toal’s work. We wanted to direct our gift to the amazing people and teams that brought me back and saved my life at least three times.”
Thanks to community minded individuals and groups, community hosted events are a huge source of fundraising and support for vital programs. The 2020 Chinese New Year Gala, hosted by The Saint John Chinese Cultural Association and Jasmine Performing Arts Group, wowed a sold-out audience at the Imperial theatre and raised over $13,000 for The GIVE: Clinic 1 Expansion! If you or your organization have the passion, we can support you. Consider partnering with us.
Eights years ago, Starr and Bill Dashwood received some difficult news. Starr was diagnosed with breast cancer. Like thousands of New Brunswickers, it meant visits and treatments and thoughts of the worst. “We really didn’t think she would make it to 50 years, our anniversary,” says Bill. It was then they decided to start an endowment. “People need a reason to give, so we looked at it and said, ‘this is fitting.’” The Dashwoods celebrated 50 years of marriage this past year and a legacy of giving, inspired by the commitment they made to each other back in 1969.
For the past decade, Canaport LNG has been a committed community supporter. As the $100,000 matching donor for our 2019 Love Your Hospital Radio-thon, their total donations to the hospital add up to more than $200,000. “It’s very important to us to support the community in which we operate,” says Courtney Jones Canaport LNG’s General Manager. “We want to be a good neighbour and we want to be able to support the organizations and activities that are important to the people who live here.”
