National Philanthropy Day

Sunday, November 15 is National Philanthropy Day—an opportunity to thank our many philanthropic partners and the donors, sponsors and volunteers who support Alberta Health Services.

Together, our partners raise over $260 million each year for healthcare enhancements—including equipment, programs and research across the province and in our communities.

And they have continued to step up in support of our pandemic response, funding emerging needs and pursuing new partnerships in support of our patients and their families.

We are proud of our work with our partners, and joining me on the vlog to tell us more are:

  • Wendy Beauchesne, CEO with Alberta Cancer Foundation;
  • Heather Bach, Executive Director with Medicine Hat and District Health Foundation; and
  • And Mike House, President and CEO with Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation,

Wendy, Heather and Mike discuss National Philanthropy Day, fundraising trends they are seeing during the pandemic, and what the future holds for healthcare philanthropy.
