Becoming a monthly donor to me means that the organization will be able to count on those funds and plan for the future. When it comes to project planning, I know the benefits of having guaranteed money coming in. - Linda Thornback, SJRH Foundation Monthly Donor
Tech Savvy Donors Inspired by Innovation in Health Care
For Linda Thornback, the decision to become a monthly donor was simple because the Foundation's mandate aligned with her passion for technology.
Linda and her husband own a technology company. When they moved to Saint John, she decided to research where they could make an impact.
“I was impressed with how the health care system in New Brunswick is moving to modernize,” she says. “I was thinking what we could do, and the answer was to donate.”
That’s when they decided to become monthly donors to the Foundation to help support innovation and technology within health care.
“For me personally, once I’ve been impressed with something, like what the Foundation is doing, I’m ready to make a commitment and to let them know I want this to be an ongoing long-term relationship.”
She encourages anyone thinking about becoming a monthly donor to do so, no matter the amount, as every little bit helps.
“In my eyes, becoming a monthly donor to the Foundation means you are making a commitment to an organization and to a group of people who are boldly trying to solve problems.”
