National Philanthropy Day

On Monday, Nov. 15, many charities and non-profits celebrated National Philanthropy Day. This day recognizes the philanthropic individuals and organizations across North America, and their exceptional contributions to the charitable sector.

That includes our amazing 69 foundation partners who raise approximately $275 million each year to support the healthcare system, which includes equipment, programs and research across the province.

With me today to tell us more about the work of their foundations and how they have navigated the pandemic are:

  • Keith Curtis, Executive Director, Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation
  • Vicki Koersen, Fundraising Coordinator, Taber and District Health Foundation
  • Saifa Koonar, President and CEO, Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation
